Howler monkeys and dogs. I have lots of both of these lovely creatures in my life on a daily basis both at home and at my shop. The doggies I always love. The monkeys, on the other hand, I love every other time time of day except at 4:30 a.m. when they sit in the tree above my house having their early morning social meeting. These are not quiet creatures!!The monkeys are surprisingly bold with my dogs. They taunt them to no end! I caught the doggies playing a game of Monkey Pinata behind the shop. The monkey would swing down by his tale Tarzan style while Merlin sat below trying to figure out the best angle. The other dogs ran around the yard barking instructions as loud as possible. You know how it is — every doggie is an expert at moments like this.
