Our dogs keep howling...

My mom told me that one of our dogs kept howling, day in and day out. Because some members of my family were very superstitious, they got rid of the dog (and I was livid when I heard of this).

Now, another dog keeps howling outside my window! I keep shushing it every night because I don’t want it to share the fate of its previous companion; unfortunately, it just won’t quit!

I never even knew that howling was linked to bad luck or omens. Is this a Filipino thing or something a little more global?

I wonder why the dogs keep howling. Will do research on it once I have enough time.
