3 years have flown by since we first picked Tilda up from her foster after the tumultuous start to her life. You’d never know it now. She’s fit and healthy. She’s in tune with her sense of smell and experiences the world nose first. She does have the typical coonhound trait of being able to bark up to one hundred times a minute. And she has SO MANY barks we’ve been able to identify. There’s a special bark for needing to go outside. One for wanting a treat. A crazy loud one for someone being at the door. A special one reserved just for the mail lady who is particularly irksome for her. There’s a play bark used when playing with another dog. There’s a bark she does while she is pooping. There’s a bark that I think means there are deer bedded down and another that I think means deer are on the move. Now that we are home all the time with her, we are getting to know even more barks!
