Real-Time "Baroo?"

Class, if you've ever wondered just what a "Baroo?" is, we have a most excellent example for you right here [looking over glasses]. Please teach all your pups this technique and report back.

So, Lauren M.—Are you the teacher OR ARE YOU THE STUDENT!? [headtilt]

Ahh... perfect coordination of whine and head tilt.

Definately Barooooo!

In this context, the head-tilt means, "What's wrong with you, woman?" ^_^

OMG,she's a great teacher! When I played this my own dog baroo'd!

 |  Nov 20, 2007 at 12:39 PM

Hmmmm? Whaaaat??

 |  Nov 20, 2007 at 12:39 PM

Is that puppeh's name "Pancake"???? HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! LOVE IT!!!!!!

 |  Nov 20, 2007 at 12:40 PM

My dog also played along!

 |  Nov 20, 2007 at 12:45 PM

That's approximately it.

 |  Nov 20, 2007 at 12:47 PM

What an excellent Baroo specimen, not every day you catch one of those in action...ellusive specimen, those Baroos...

 |  Nov 20, 2007 at 12:48 PM

ohmigosh, yes -- Pancake!!!

 |  Nov 20, 2007 at 01:04 PM

Think they have a kitteh named Syrup?

 |  Nov 20, 2007 at 01:18 PM

It says the video isn't available :(

 |  Nov 20, 2007 at 01:34 PM

Wurrrrrrrut (Head Tilt) Snicker.

 |  Nov 20, 2007 at 01:45 PM

Rhi -- it's still working, honest. Maybe try again later, or from a different location (home vs work, for instance). Sometimes YouTube just gets wonky like that.

 |  Nov 20, 2007 at 02:01 PM

Oh, I didn't realise that, I just thought that pancakes were his favourite treat!!

LOL - I had to replay it - Pancake?? That dog's name is Pancake? That is awesome.

 |  Nov 20, 2007 at 02:51 PM

oh, pancake is quite delicious for me.

i am trying to teach my pup to tilt his head when i say 'baroo?' but so far he refuses to play along and tilts his head whenever he damn well pleases.

 |  Nov 20, 2007 at 03:31 PM

Umm...It might be just me, but it sounds like the person filming the thing is doing the baroo.. it's not the dog making the noise.. so I dont get this video..

 |  Nov 20, 2007 at 03:42 PM

Pancake?!? Awesome!!!

 |  Nov 20, 2007 at 04:09 PM

mandie Baroo is not a sound it is a look. The tilt of the head with the slightly confused curious look. baroo or what is that thing or sound.

[http://www.squidgrid.com/cute/Glossary.htm#Baroo ]
[So, I'd say "Baroo" does in fact have a sound component, Annie. But more to Mandie's point, as far as the *source* of the sound in this video... that's what Meg's "teacher or STUDENT?" question was about. - Ed.]

 |  Nov 20, 2007 at 04:12 PM

Isn't barooo (also) the word for dogs (such as mine) who don't bark but more aorffs and when denied a pig ear do the barooou sound?

 |  Nov 20, 2007 at 04:27 PM

well, i just tried that exact same sound on my dog and he totally baroo'd for me every time.

 |  Nov 20, 2007 at 06:08 PM

Rhi... if it still won't work for you, scroll up to the top of the comment page and click that vid instead. For some reason that worked for me while the one on the main page did not. Have no idea why.

 |  Nov 20, 2007 at 08:12 PM

Um, does Pancake want to go to the Pug Party?

 |  Nov 20, 2007 at 09:23 PM

That is truly How Baroo Is Done.

 |  Nov 20, 2007 at 10:30 PM

Fish eye. I concur, it's 'have you taken leave of your senses woman'.

The video also provided us with many other great baroo specimen links. Like this pugaroo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JB6y7t_FeT8

*polite approving applause*

 |  Nov 20, 2007 at 11:21 PM

Wow. Ok, that link was like obvy in the next post anyway. I should have known. Sorry.

 |  Nov 20, 2007 at 11:22 PM

Yep my westie/retriever/whatever mix did this same thing when you said, "Wanna go out?" or "Wanna go for a walk?"

 |  Nov 21, 2007 at 04:03 AM

Oh, yes, and my cat... on the other hand, only tilts her head to the side when she sees a water faucet on and she wants to swat the water stream. :)

 |  Nov 21, 2007 at 04:03 AM

The pug parrrrrrteeeeeeee??
To see Barney? And Tina? And Gina? And Nina? And Mary? And Sara? And Jody? And Bonnie? And Joey? And Tony? And Binky? And Dinky? And Biffy? And Stinky? And Whiffy? And Bozo? And Marty? And Buzzy? And . .

 |  Nov 21, 2007 at 10:51 AM

I do agree that the truly perfect baroo would be the doggeh making some kind of "ooh" noise in conjunction with the head tilt, but this will certainly fit the bill for now. Kudos, Lauren and pancake!!!

 |  Nov 21, 2007 at 10:53 AM

The way his one ear is up higher than the other, and the sweets whiskers on his little face!!!! I want to make kissies and snorgle him!!!!

 |  Nov 21, 2007 at 12:40 PM

Pancake is perfection! What type of doggie is this? Can I clone him and have one of mine own?

 |  Nov 23, 2007 at 08:37 AM

Thanks, Sueno! He's a mix of Jack Russell and Silky Terrier. And sorry, he is not available for cloning at this time :-)

 |  Nov 23, 2007 at 04:51 PM

Head tilt: perfect technique. 6.0! :)
