I feel your pain. Most of you know that Henry is a beagle/shepherd mix, and that he never howls, bays, or barks. He whines or growls occasionally, but that's it. I could probably count on one hand the number of times he's barked/bayed in the 1.5 years we've had him. I was prepared for him to be vocal with his mix when we adopted him, and to hopefully modify it a bit, but I am so grateful that he's quiet. Long story short, my next door neighbor has a beagle mix (maybe half, maybe less) that is so terribly loud. She bays incessantly when outside. Plus she's scared of a lot of stuff, so most of her baying has that insecure, frantic note to it. And they have a pom that yaps all da*n day. If Bodie is really loud imagine it times two. My experiences with multiple dogs is that they often set each other off. I had two English cockers for years as a child. They rarely vocalized on the hunt when taking direction from my dad and grandpa, but back at the house they barked a lot and always in tandem. So I guess what I'm trying to say is be careful, whatever you decide!
