I was at my Great Aunt's today for Thanksgiving Dinner and her daughter, my cousin Sheryl brought a cute little mixed-breed black dog (her name is Emma) over to my Great Aunt's. Adorable dog (I don't have any pictures, I'm sorry), she said it was a supposed mix of a Yorkshire Terrier and a Wire-haired Terrier, some kind of new "Designer Breed" that the breeders got rid of due to something being wrong with her uterus, I'm not entirely sure.
Anyway, she does the strangest thing for seemingly no reason at all. She emits an eardrum-shattering high-pitched squeal of DEATH. O_O You'd think we were trying to butcher that dog the way she screamed!
It didn't make sense when she did it either. No one was touching her, no one was really near her -- she did it right next to me when I finished scratching her behind the ears.
I absolutely cannot figure out why that dog squeals. She's well fed, she's well taken care of, she didn't have to go outside... She doesn't appear to have any behavioral issues, at least not with people! She'll take a nap in your arms even!
One second she'll be completely fine, and then she just lets out a blood-curdling shriek!
It has the whole family confused.
Any thoughts guys?
