Belvedere is fairly quiet. My new one, Dixie, is a talker. She bark-talks. While sometimes it's very cute ...it can also be hard to handle. She basically gives little barks when she wants something. Or when she's happy to be getting something. Or when someone comes to visit. Or just when she arrives in a room and has just come from outside, where something fascinating happened.
Bubba mumbled ( sounded like someone muttering under their breath) all the time with a huge variety of other sounds, plus his lovely Aroooo! So far Bogie is a very quiet guy, we have only heard him bark about three times in the six weeks we have had him.
Lucy talks all the time. She sounds like she's warbling (is that a word) like a bird.. it's amazing. We sit and laugh hysterically.. she especially does it when we have something to eat that SHE wants. Between the look and the noise it's a riot!
Mine are talkers too.It depeneds on what they want.Rossy does his Poor Basset thing.He falls on th efloor and howls.The more you tell him" Poor Rossy, the poor baby basset,he has such big ears" the more he does it.I cannot help but laugh.
I don't fondly call Claire "Motor Mouth" for nothing!! If i don't pet her enough or shower her with a ton of attention, or heaven forbid, pet or play with Porkchop, she immediately lets me know her discontent. She sounds like a cross between a bark/howl/monkey combination. It's like no sound I have ever heard before. And if I let it, she will go on and on and on......... mostly I just laugh, but it gets a little annoying if I have company over or if I'm on the phone.
She also gets mad at her TAIL and runs in circles barking and chasing it......... a little neurotic ya think?? hehehehe
Mocha and Beldin do LOTS of "talking". I've often said ... "I don't know WHY people call them 'Hush Puppies' when they're so vocal!" ... My mom finally came back with, "It's because you always have to say, 'HUSH puppy!" *hehe*
