I dont think I've heard Max bark before... until last night. He was sitting quietly at my feet while I was on the sofa when suddenly he let rip this big almighty bark (not a yap but a real "big dog" bark).
It startled me and i said to him "Max!! What was that???!!" and he then coughed a couple of times like he was trying to disguise his bark as a cough. He then jumped up all crazy like and ran straight into my computer cables and nearly choked himself on one. I got him loose and he went out side still very excited so I let him stay out there to calm down a bit.
He came back in about 10 mins later right as Larry.
Was a very very weird moment and one of those where I really wished I'd had the video camera going!
