My wife said these are good people for loving a dog like that.

I am very glad that I don't have a dog that does that, my cats don't do that, my roommates don't do that, and aside from my computer right now, nothing I regularly interact with does that.

I'm going to go ahead and assume this is...audioshopped? But if not, there's either a horrifying story in the past or one in the future (when the SWAT team arrives after a call from the neighbors).

No listen I'm a brilliant researcher but I can't think about anything but food, my deep endless hunger and how much I want to smell a butt. I'm trapped, this is torture, please let me lick that cat poop. WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH ME THROW THE BALL I CHASE.

Some dogs do have the ability to mimic other dogs. My basenji rat terrier mix not only learned how to bay like a beagle, but he taught another dog how to do it.

Foxes sometimes make a sound a good bit like that (this is not a bad example, although it's not a really spectacular one), and if you're lucky, you'll have the chance to observe someone hearing it for the first time in the dark woods at night.

If I had this dog I would spend half my time getting it to do this and then ask it questions like, "Trump for Prez?" and "What do you think of babies?" and laughing my ass off.

This is a pet I want. Can't exactly explain why besides knowing I would be laughing my ass off every day. I also want one of those screaming goats. Having one would be reason enough to move to a farm . . . or reason enough to put up with pissed off neighbors.

I've come to believe the dog was really the voice in this scene.

But further video graphic and sound spectrometry analysis, coupled with doggie being surrounded by cats, leds me to conclude the dog was the original voice over for this scene.

I will never not laugh at animals screaming like humans. It's just automatic to me.

In related videos there's a compilation video of fox noises includes a bit of that video.

I laughed until about halfway through when its voice broke, the way a man's does when he is wailing in despair over the sudden loss of a loved one. Disturbing.

My (asshole) pug makes a weird screamy human noise once every four months or so...it freaks me out every single time. Normally it's over a food item that he wants. Like I said, he's an asshole. An adorable little asshole.

One morning a while back I got up especially early for a run. I had recently moved and was still trying out different routes and feeling a bit uncomfortable running at all, really.

I think it was around halloween but I remember it being particularly cold and expecting it to be particularly dark... but instead there was this near-full moon giving off an eerie sort of light (everyone was talking about super moons back then but I don't remember if this was one). This morning I had got up earlier than normal and in my half-sleep I was seeing things as I started to run. A shape like a faded ghost. Strange sounds and lights like I couldn't process their source. It was just kind of spooky out.

Early in the run I turned onto a residential side street that goes by two little parks. The roads were empty and I hadn't seen a soul and I found myself struggling, breathing heavily and lumbering down the middle of the road when I hear this girl scream. It was this blood-curdling scream of distress, just ahead, near a house by the wooded park. My breathing stopped and I continued to move only out of inertia. What was that? It sounded distinctly human. I think. Did I just witness a crime? I'm the only one out here, what do I do? I had these weird reflexive primal thoughts of fear, stealth, heroism. I continued wide awake, with slower strides, and tried to process the sound. Did I imagine it? No, it was too real.

Before I can make up my mind about it, there's another cry and I realize it's a dog. Just a dog. Barking at me. Either its voice needed to warm up, or I misheard the first time. But I finished the run with relief.

You know, I stopped running in the early mornings.. In fact I don't run at all any more.

FUCK, man, I could have been internet famous for a little bit had things just been shifted in time a little: I had a dog that screamed like this when I was a kid. It was mostly that she would get excited enough that the interval between barks became more and more elided until it just turned into a (higher pitched than with the FPP) version of what you see above.

Somebody needs to make a supercut of that over great tragic movie scenes. Like the end of Se7en, the torture scene in Braveheart, hell even the scene where Theoden is screaming Death! at the Rohirrim before they charge down the hill. I'd probably laugh myself into a hernia.

Still, the best is undercover Freddie Mercury trolling a bunch of turkeys.

Well I watched that whole thing. I don't know why. I guess I was expecting some sort of surprise ending. You know what we would call that dog in my house? Dead dog.

Their poor neighbors. Their poor, poor neighbors.

One of the two huskies next door used to sound a lot like that. (Only not quite so emotional.) Maybe it stopped making that sound because of aging... I don’t think it actually was murdered.

Fortunately, a lot of the year in this part of Maine involves winter, so the dogs stay inside a great deal of the time.

I'm imagining an alternate timeline where upright walking dogs rule the planet, and the ones with midlife crises pay thousands of dollars to go to a retreat in woods and wail like their pet human in order to unleash their emotions and tap into a less developed, more primal form of expression.

When you hear that noise, you will know I am telepathically controlling the dog and also that I am in a marketing meeting which is about social media strategy or perhaps client feedback or maybe about the internet of things and big data and toilets.

that is where the noise comes from.

I recently heard of truly nasty people who mass-produce popular small breeds and actually have the vocal chords cut in the puppies because many of their customers prefer to purchase their pets without the yapping. I wonder if this could be one of those, gone wrong.

That was literally physically distressing to hear. I was on the verge of crying by the end of the video. If it weren't for the fact that the dog looked quite happy with the waggy tail, I think I would have burst out crying.
