Rooney, our now 5-month-old pup, has always been a pretty quiet guy (knock wood). He's also a rock star about sleeping through the night in his crate (ditto with the knocking), and we always get up early to let him out. So imagine our surprise when we were woken at 5:30 this a.m. by a loud, unearthly moaning that sounded like a cross between humpback whale and mating moose. We went rushing to his crate in the livingroom, at which point he got up, seemingly ok although breathing a bit heavily. He was his regular, happy-go-lucky self, and after a quick trip outside, we sent him back to bed for an hour - with no howling.

Has anyone had a hound that howls in his sleep? He has had a subtle, on-and-off limp that we speculate might be pano, but otherwise no obvious signs of pain. We're really, really hoping that he hasn't decided to start practicing his singing voice in the wee hours of the morning. And if he was sleep howling, I wonder if it was a nightmare, or the best dream of his life (non-stop belly scratching, unlimited cookies, all the chewies a boy could want...).
