I was just watching a horror movie (alone and in the dark of course)… right at a prime scary moment I heard a horrible noise behind me! :eek: I almost fell off of my couch! Silly Sophie! She thought that would be a perfect moment to snark at Stick. I'm sure y'all know the noise, it sounds like it comes from the depths of hell! :o Just thought I'd share so others can laugh at how stupid I am!
We used to have a male cat that sounded like he was possessed by demon at night when other cats came to the window-scary
My scariest animal was our tri when he must have been having a bad dream and screamed in the middle of the night, a blood curdling scream that sounded like a man being stabbed to death.
I'll never forget that scream-just primal and LOUD!
That reminds me of a morning that Conal and I were running late. Sophie was in the yard and was not pleased at being ignored so she started screaming. Conal and I didn't think much of it until a little boy (about 8 or 9) showed up in our yard obviously looking scared. When Conal went out to check on him the boy kept asking "Where's the lady? I heard a lady screaming! We need to help her!" Conal managed to stop laughing long enough to point to our innocent looking basenji and explain that the "lady" was fine, she just didn't like being ignored!
When I first move into my new house with my basenji, I don't know if it was unfamiliar environment or what the reason was she started screaming in my back yard. I know having a basenj it is nothing new. Us being new in the neighborhood my neighbors didn't know what to think. About a day or so later my door bell rang, I answer to find animal control standing there. She asked me if she could see my pets. I let her in my home and proudly showed her my pets. She kept looking at me like I had done some thing wrong. Finally I asked her if there was a problem. She said that there was a complaint of animal abuse, that some one heard an animal screaming in pain from my back yard. I started laughing and she got really up set with me. She said "miss, animal abuse is nothing to laugh at" only making me laugh harder because I then knew why she was at my home. I explained that weezie was a basenji and some times when she wasn't happy she would scream to get my attention and I agreed with her that animal abuse isn't any thing to laugh at. She still seemed unconvinced that there was nothing happening here. So I said watch, I put weezie in her crate and she started having a fit. She said Oh, that is what you were talking about laughing. After she left I took weezie to every house on my street and introduced her and myself to the neighbors. I explained to them what kind of dog she was and that what they had heard was her angry about one thing or another and said that I was sorry for any inconvience or unneeded upsets. Basenjis are not that comon my neck of the woods. All I can say about it is that it was a real ice breaker with my new neighbors Almost three years later either she doesn't scream as much or my neighbors have got used to her loud noises!
It Sounds Like Devil Talk Its Almost Like She's Talking.
HaHa That's Sophie to a tee! If you try to force her to do something she doesn't want to (like making her go in her crate at bedtime before SHE is ready) then we get a "talking" to. Conal and I think it's hysterical!
I think I saw Sophie on a b video website and I was so glad that someone else's B made that noise I showed it to my husband and daughter. Thanks for posting that video because as a new B owner we thought we had some kind of devel dog!!! She does it the most to our oldest dog Josie. There are nights she even does it from under our covers in bed when she hears Josie moving out in the living room. Too Funny!!!!
