Truth in Advertising: No, the boys don't actually howl.

They won't howl if we howl, although they do jump around and get very excited.

They won't howl if they hear other dogs howl.

They won't even howl if they hear a siren.

Henry will sometimes howl in his sleep, albeit rarely. It's a long, low, mournful sound that makes me think he's dreaming of being lost and is trying to find his family again.

Or perhaps it's just his inner wolf, so deeply buried in this gentle dog that it only gets to come out in his dreams.
