One of the most beautiful sounds we hear on the farm is when all of the dogs raise their heads to the heavens and begin their howl that comes from deep inside their hearts. It's a primitive sound, and all of the dogs will chime in, including the puppies and it's a song that will be etched on my heart forever.
