Owls and Growls

I heard Otis pacing and whining at 3:00 AM.  I reluctantly got up to take him outside.

We began to walk in the yard. From the trees above us I heard the Hoot-Hoot-Hoot of an owl. Otis began to growl - loud and fierce. Otis had no interest in doing anything but staring into the woods, growling.

I realized that the reason Otis had been whining was because he heard the owl. Otis did not need to go out, he was bothered by the owl's calls and pacing as a result.  We immediately headed back inside.

Shatze goes crazy when he hears an owl - his hair goes up on the back of his neck and he barks like crazy!
