When Ali stretches out and scratches her ears she sounds like a motor bike. She stayed at a dog kennel when she was 4 months old, and the lady told me she was the biggest suck. A few months ago i took Ali for a walk and a little Yorkie ran out of yard, she pulled out of her collar and ran home ( about 5 houses down). She has made friends with the neighbors cat.

Oh definitely. My young one, Cheyenne, moans whenever she is bored. It's between a moan mized with a sigh. Then she groans when she is relaxing and ready to take a nap.

I'm so glad this topic is covered here. Our first two GSDs never did. Heidi lets out the loudest, most content sounding moan as she begins to wind down for the night.

She also seems to like it when I quickly press and release on her belly as she's moaning. It's kinda like covering and uncovering a baby's mouth as they're cooing.

Riley groans. Most of the time if he is bothered when he is asleep.

Zim groans constantly, more so at night, when he's just woken up, or whenever I wake him up, like when I go into the bathroom, or turn the light on in the hallway to go down to the kitchen.

He also groans when he's trying to nap and someone, mainly me, keeps talking. I've also noticed he does it when he's trying to sleep and the TV is on. He likes to have uninterrupted sleep.

When Eko does it, its usually him asking for attention or when he's getting a good rub or groaning mixed with whines when we get him amped up by asking him where the ball is. To me it sounds like he's trying to talk to us like maybe that's how he hears us talking and tries to copy it.

Oh my word, my pup suddenly started groaning, it's these big long really deep GROOOOOOAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNN, usually when she's tired or sleeping.

One time she woke me up in the middle of the night, I thought she was growling, but nope, just a big groan. lol

She also protest groans. lol
