When human babies first start to coo and try to form words, we're filled with delight. And those of us with furbabies are equally charmed when our little packages of fuzz and wiggle decide to try out those vocal cords, too. The husky baby in this video will positively melt your heart as he tries to howl like his bigger relatives.
Huskies harken back to their wolf ancestors in lots of ways, but communication is the one feature that most people relate to wolves. Their deep, resonant ahhroo! is recognizable the world ‘round. And that’s why this puppy is so adorable.
There’s a lot of growing up a pup has to do before he’s old enough to let loose with a true howl. Of course, from the moment he's born, his whimpers and whines let mama know what he’s in need of, whether it’s milk, a tongue rub-down or warmth.
Not all huskies howl, and those that do, start howling at all different ages. This little one is heart-stealing when he throws back his head and sings his own song. But hilariously, he actually sounds more like a cat than a dog!
Each time he sends out his call of the wild, he’s letting other huskies know he’s feeling abandoned. Even though his human mom is holding him securely, deep down he knows he’s meant for the great outdoors and a pack of dogs with souls as primitive as his own.
Wolves and dogs that live outdoors (especially in packs) howl much more often than indoor pets. They howl to locate other members of the pack or to warn strange dogs not to enter their territory.
