Is your GS very vocal?

Lexi does this cute little hyena like thing when she's happy, like first thing in the morning she comes in and jumps on the bed kissing us like crazy and "talking" and "giggling" like a hyena! I swear sometimes it sounds just like she's going, "mommmmm, mamaaaa" She'll go on for the longest time like that, I love it! She will also howl like a wolf if she's anxious about something, like if she wants to go outside or eat and we aren't moving fast enough, LOL!

I love when dogs are vocal like that, my mom has a mini pin who makes the funniest noises, very human like! If she's frustrated she'll actually make that huffing noise, like a human will do if they are irritated! It's so cute!

Ramsey is beyond vocal. its almost like he is carrying a conversation with him self all the time. when we go in the Suv, i take a bottle of Aspirin for the inevitable headache.

Re: Is your GS very vocal?

before i left for iraq, my cinnimon would grunt, groan and snore in her sleep. outside in the back yard, she barks at big trucks, other dogs or cats that come around or starts howling when fire truck or ambalance goes by. Then when we bring her into the house, she is so quiet, i know of 3 times she barked when in the house. She is a rescue who will be 3yrs old and we've had her a year. I wonder why she wont bark in the house. I would love to have her bark when the door bell is rang or someone knocks, as this is how some criminals check to see if anyone is home.

I would rather die on my feet than live on my knees under a socialist nation.

Re: Is your GS very vocal?

oh my goodness, yes, riley has become the biggest talker. she "whinnies" and whines and groans and huffs, lol. Actually, lately she has been "talking back" to me when I tell her to do something she doesn't want to and we have to work on that (she always obeys, just tells me how she doesn't like it lol).

But morning time when she gets invited in bed for morning cuddles there is the most talking. Especially if we are being lazy and sleeping late- she tries to wake us up with kisses and groans.

Marley sounds exactly like a BEAR. Very Very vocal!!! My DH said he talks just as much as the girls and their friends!!

Moans whenever you pet her under the neck. Sighs LOUDLY when she gets put in her crate for anything. "Bear talk" when she is playing.

It's like having another teenager in the house...YACK YACK YACK

Re: Is your GS very vocal?

Haha!
Bogart whines a fair amount. One example, he has access to his water bowl but will be on his bed and whine. When we say go drink some water he gets all excitted and goes to his bowl to drink. We make him wait for our command before he eats but never for water. lol

The other thing he does is a big sigh! like the problem of the world are on his shoulders. hahahaha!
We love him to death.

Re: Is your GS very vocal?

OH MY LORD you want to talk about vocal....Pup is all about talking to me. He will come over and sit right in front of me and tell me all sorts of stuff. Ruff Ruff this and he is a winer when he needs to go out to potty. I have never had a dog like him. What a great pleasure he has been.

Yes very vocal he is.
