While Gambit is a purebred shelter mutt, we’ve always been pretty certain Gambit’s breed mix includes a bit of cold nosed coonhound. His instincts, build, personality, expressions, bright mind, and vocal tendencies are all strong indications. Side by side, he and Nellie look remarkably similar in build and overall face shape.
While he doesn’t bay or sing as well as Nellie, he talks to us regularly. Some of the noises that come out of his mouth are pretty amusing, and so are the faces that accompany them.
These are some of the noises he made while watching a groundhog one day – nowhere near a complete collection!
