My dog snores. She hasn't always done this, but as she's gotten older it seems to worsen by the day. I mean sometimes it's so loud it drowns out the TV. I could fall asleep in front of the TV and wake 20 minutes later from her snoring. When she walks or runs, she oinks now like a pig and that in itself is somewhat humorous, but when she sits in front of you, staring at your food and snoring at it while she is wide awake, even I crack up.
My Dad had a ukulele when we were kids. If you've never seen one, it's like a baby guitar but with only four nylon strings. You tuned it by singing these four words: My Dog Has Fleas. Now, when you look at those four words it's hard to imagine tuning an instrument to them, but if you heard how they were sung just once, you would never forget. It always worked.
If I could just use that theory on my dog I might be able to make her snoring just a little more pleasing to the ear: My Dog Snores Loud. You know...tune her up or something.
Anybody else out there have pets or animals that make uncharacteristic noises? Love to hear about it.
