    Default Tate talks to me

    Does your bulldog talk to you?
    I'm not referring to barking, but actually trying to form words to communicate w/you?

    I have noticed this with Tate. For the past 3 weeks maybe, when he's trying to get my attention, he'll "speak" to me. I wish I could describe it somehow...it's like Charlie Brown's teacher in those old cartoons...remember her? But Tate's voice is sort of like a parrot with a frog in his throat imitating Charlie Brown's teacher.:whatsthat?:

    Anyways, i find it interesting and cute. But is this "normal" or do i have a genius bulldog on my hands?

    Yes, Nitschke did it... we called it his 'chewbacca' voice. I posted a video of it a couple weeks about... it is too funny -- when he was at daycare the crew there loved it and tried to get him to 'talk' all the time.

    Jack does this strange whiny crying thing when I have to put him in the crate while I'm fixing dinner. He doesn't mind the crate any other time and its the only time he makes this noise.

    Frank talks to us and we talk back. Then he gets all worked up and hops around. We will also sneeze back and forth. But I also think you have a genius bulldog too!

    Ummm why this thread does NOT have videos to back these claims up is beyond me! (With the Chewbacca example - I saw that one! Cute!) So um...@Cali~baker, you got a cell phone and a finger....start taping! Otherwise, I cannot even begin to accept these outrageous claims! That goes for the rest of you too.

    Tubs does this some times, more when we are playing, but he is quiet most of the time. He goes nuts with barking when he hears ro sees people outside. He will growl when we are playing tug-o-war, but yesterday my husband and Tubs were having a "bark off" and he was making these noises as well! I will have to get them to do it again so I can video it!
