dear gravy is benny talkative, which is ironic since he can't hear a blessed thing, and i use the word talkative because it really does seem like he's just chattering away.  for some reason his mutterings ring as less annoying than just all-out barking but it does have a way of breaking you down eventually.  [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9qOH5nFOaw&fs=1&hl=en_US] i gotta give it up to violet - i would have let him have the bone just to shut him up....
