Treeing Walker Coonhound echo
August has been a beautiful month on Legend Lake. Millie the coonhound loves to lie in the hot sun because the mosquitos won’t bug her. Of course, she loves to bark at anything that strikes her fancy. She will occasionally decide to bark at boats too close to our shore from the hill looking down to the lake.
When it is still and quiet her barking into the shallow valley around the lake will produce an acoustic oddity. An echo will answer her bark after a couple of seconds. She is a smart dog, but does not understand the echo. She will bark for minutes and gets perturbed that another dog bark gets the last word!
Our 2 other dogs just sit and watch her bark, and bark, and bark at her echo. They won’t bother barking, because they don’t know what the heck she is barking at? She’s barking at herself!
