    That's so funny, Henny! I can picture this only because I've done the same! I got down on my hands and knees and barked at Mabel trying to get her to bark. She ran to the window, sure there was a dog outside. Her hair on her back went up, she growled, I kept barking (got pretty good at it), but she still didn't bark. I always have said that our beloved Trixie found Mabel for us and led us to her. Now I know! Trixie was a terrible barker (145 pounds of barking bitch right in your face). It was her one horrible habit every night around 7 pm. She found us a quiet dog. Knowing we needed a break!

    Mine don't howl or bark at sirens but every once in a while Cleo will bark or growl if she is startled by a noise. They usually cannot be bothered to get off the couch.

    Haha, at least Forde will give you a warning bark. If I don't pick up on them waiting by the door they will just say 'screw you mom, you can clean it up now since you're making me wait'. One night I must have really been ignoring Fat Cleo cuz she came over to me by the desk in the laundry room, stared at me and then peed all while just staring at me. Almost like she was daring me to punish her cuz I made her wait.

    Both Bella & Winston just bark, I have never heard them howl... DON'T even get me started on the boxer Roxie. She's a howling queen, especially for the UPS man!!! LOL

    Oh, good, i'm glad i'm not the only (crazy) one who did that! I still cannot get them to bark "on demand" either! I've tried and tried with treats and all that, even looked up some youtube's about it. They're always barking at the neighbors when they're working in the backyard though...

    Well, can you blame her? I mean, those shorts they wear...i've been known to howl whenever the UPS guy drops by my house too

    Ruthie doesn't howl at anything. She's a barker. She doesn't bark at sirens, whistles, horns...nothing like that. But she barks at the tv, loud trucks and just cause other dogs are barking, she likes to talk back so joins in the convo.

    Tank barks at thunder as well.. I guess it's just certain noises that get to them..

    I am loving everyone's comments on what their pets bark at! As mentioned, Tank barks at the doorbell, cats, birds, and that's about it.
