    Default Talkative

    Just curious if any of you have "talkative" bullies?

    I know some breeds are more chatty than others (Sookie is a malamute/husky and a BIG talker!) but I don't normally think bullies are known for being a vocal breed. Tank however, is constantly making some sort of noise. He whines for attention, he barks at strangers walking past, he barks at me when he has finished his food and has decided I didn't feed him enough . He is forever talking!!! Bre however, is quiet as a mouse unless she is snoring or farting!

    So...does anybody else have a talker?

    HRH is very quiet. She has started playing "watchdog" if the doorbell rings, but that's a relatively new thing.

    Bo is known to frequently make this whiny grunt noise - relentlessly too so he always gets his way because the noise is annoying. After a few minutes of it, I'd bake him a damn cake if it would shut him up. The "noise" means (including but not limited to by any means):
    "I want up on the couch." (and I'm being too lazy to jump myself)
    "I want up on the couch but the coffee table is too close to the couch so I can't get my haunches up."
    "I am up on the couch, having jumped here myself but no one is in here with me." (If Grandma is in her chair, he'll sit and look at her while he makes this noise)
    "The neighbor I've seen 5 trillion times is getting into her car again."
    "I want up on the big bed."
    "I feel asleep on the couch and now, I woke up out there alone and I want you to make me go to bed."
    "Bea won't give me that toy."
    "I'm not giving this toy back to Bea."
    "I got my toy stuck under the paisley armchair."
    "My toy is under the paisley armchair and I can reach it but I'd much rather see you get down here and get it for me."
    "I'm not allowed to leave the porch but I really want to go down these stairs and see that invisible ___________ over there." (insert anything)

    That's all I can think of now. the Bo Meister.

    Usko makes a noise of some sort almost all the time, but doesn't bark that much.

    Watson doesn't usually bark or whine. When I leave the house and crate him, sometimes he makes chewbacca noises

    Gio rarely barks but he whines if we I take too long making his lunch or dinner, if I'm eating, if I'm cooking or if I'm on my laptop for too long! He always needs my full attention or else he cries! What a big baby!

    Yes Cooper is the same...he is a whiney baby!!!! I always know if there is another dog, a person, or an object he can't get he will do the whine thing. If he wants on the couch or if you are leaving he does the whine thing. I can always call it before he does it to. He barks too but now often but I agree with you he is always making noises.... He uses that whine high pitch purring noise (is how I would describe it) when he wants up on the bed or if I am not paying attention to him. I like his little whine though!
