One of the reasons I love spending time in the woods is the fabulous quiet that surrounds you. The only sounds are normally the rustling of the leaves on the trees, birds and the odd chatty squirrel.

Not today though. Today the woods around here were filled with shrieking and yowling. The birds fled in terror and the squirrels had their little paws crammed in their ears.

What was causing this horrible disturbance in the forest you ask??

Perhaps you know Jack -

We were 'reacquainting' Jack with camping. It didn't go very smoothly...

"Some one PLEASE shut him up" suggested Runner




"No Crunchie, we cannot drown him in the lake"


Trust me, the pictures in NO WAY really convey the HORRIFIC noise that emanates from the soul of this grey monster when he wants to do something (like MOVE) that I won't let him. It is amazing that he can actually move his mouth so little and produce so much noise!!

"Yes, amazing"

For one hour and 45 minutes of our 2 hour break he shrieked. The last 15 minutes were BLISS!!!

Lucky for Jack he is good in harness!!

EARPLUGS, Karen! Have mercy on those poor pups! After an hour 45 minutes, they've earned them!! ;)

Maybe Jack is Cheesewhiz's long lost brother? Cheoah has both monstrous volume and a total lack of tone - thus it sounds something like an air horn going off over and over.

Jack just wanted everyone to know that they missed his 3rd Birthday, and he was upset. Just wish him a belated Happy Birthday and maybe just maybe he would shut up.

Ever thought of debarking? Cheaper in the long run than earplugs and helpful with everyone's sanity too.
