Howl at the … ice cream van

My mummy and daddy have been told by our neighbour that sometimes I howl when I’m home alone. As I rarely bark and haven’t howled since I was forced to sleep downstairs when I first came to live with them, they struggled to believe it. Until yesterday.

While daddy was chilling upstairs, and I was snoozing in the garden, the ice cream van came round. And because I LOVE ice cream, I gave out my best wolfie howl to alert everyone in the street and most importantly, my daddy, so that he would go and get me some nommy ice cream!


But daddy was so shocked by my vocal outburst that instead of rushing out the door like he was supposed to, he called down to me to ask if I was OK and DIDN’T get me any ice cream!!! Humans are useless! What a waste of a good howl. He didn’t even record it:-(
So instead here’s a picture of me curled up on the sofa.

Happy Friday everyone! If the ice cream man turns up in your street, give him a good howl from me and maybe you’ll get the ice cream that I should’ve had:-)

    He’s extremely unlikely to turn up here. But, if he does, I’ll howl. I rarely howl, so I may be out of practice – I’ll follow up with a good bark.

    I’ll be sure to Hooooooooooowl if he turns up here! Have a great Furiday xx00xx

  3. Better luck next time Misaki 😦

  4. Misaki I would howl with you for ice cream (but my howling is a little bit pitiful, you are the expert) >:o))))

  5. Misaki poor you , no ice cream. cruel cruel peeps. I’ll howl you a cone pal. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

    I can howl – we should have a duet. But I’ve never had ice cream.

  7. I don’t know how to howl, but I think it would come in handy for a lot of occasions. Mom makes me special ice cream pops with a dog treat for a handle. Yum.

    Love and licks,

  8. Whee heard the ice cream van going round yesterday. It was so loud and probably not selling much because it was absolutely freezing!

  9. Poor Misaki! What a waste of a perfectly good HOWL since you didn’t get ice cream out of the effort. Well, at least now your humans know you’ve got a talent they didn’t know you had! 😀

    I am a howler too! I bark sometimes but usually I just howl and our neighbors have heard me howling when my mom is gone too – I guess we have something in common. Bummer you did not get any ice cream!

  11. These bipeds – just no training them! Poor Misaki, missing out on ice cream when you’d put so much effort in. We’ll share with you if the ice cream truck comes anywhere near us.

    Kenzie and I howl at the garbage truck. I don’t expect Him to buy me garbage.

    I see that tongue just waiting for some ice cream! What’s up with your Dad? Geeze! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  14. There’s a Husky who lives next door to us who howls when police cars and ambulances go past. It used rto scare us, but we’re used to it now 😀

    P.S: What does ice cream taste like?

    Sheesh, Misaki – some reward that was for giving your Dad a good howl!!! We have all been known to let out a good song when the tornado sirens go of for testing days. Come to think of it, we don’t get any reward for that either.

    Have a great weekend.

    Misaki, I don’t howl, but I make every other noise you can think of. I’ll let out a real loud bark if the truck comes this way and MAKE my Ma get some ice cream and overnight it to ya! Sometimes peeps just don’t understand us



  17. Miss D is jealous! The ice cream man rarely comes our way. So we make do with howling at the firemen, motorcycles, neighbor dogs, thunder, the wind…

  18. Bosun Dawg says:

    I bet it was a very fine howl and I regret that it did not get you any ice cream. If the ice cream truck was playing music we would howl as a pack.

  19. I would have loved to have heard that howl Misaki! All but one of my crew howl each day when the train passes and blows its horn… oh what sweet music to my ears!

  20. Hey Buddy,

    Sorry to hear your howl was wasted on your Dad!! Doh!!

    I’m not big into howling, but my buddy Cosmo next door likes to howl at the sirens and one day when I was staying with him I decided to join in, the two of us were howling on the raised deck, it was like we were in concert – it was fun!! 🙂

    Wags to all,

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂
