Yes, his leg is missing.

Among the things I do with my dog besides taking him to the beach, loving on him and irritating him in equal amounts, and posing him for a picture with a knife in his mouth, is recording his barking and howling.

Enjoy.

This is a normal bark:

then at 25x PLUS! I autotuned it to sound like several dogs at once (you might pay money to listen to that during a shiatsu massage):
