Human babies learn to talk by listening to their parents, and it seems that dogs are no different.
In an adorable video posted to YouTube, Belka, a three-week-old Alaskan malamute-Siberian husky gets the hang of howling with some help from her human boy owner.
The tiny pup sits on the boy’s chest, testing out her pipes with some tiny chirruping noises, sounding more like a baby bird than a dog.
The boy sets her on the right track, demonstrating a howl more befitting a canine.
Belka soon gets the hang of it, lifting her nose to the sky and howling like a tiny wolf.
And what she lacks in authority and gravitas, Belka makes up for with sheer enthusiasm.
Her owners, from the ‘Polar bear capital of the world,’ Churchill, Manitoba in Canada explain that her name, Belka, means ‘squirrel’ in Russian.
The name was chosen for the color of her coat, and her mother’s name Laika, means ‘barker.’
Contrary to her name, Laika is a quiet dog, they say, and only barks when she sees a polar bear.
Belka’s bark may not yet be enough to scare off a polar bear – or a teddy bear – but she’s certainly on her way.
