how many of you do this?

I am notorius for running around with my toy monkey while whining for a good 10 minutes every once in a while. Mommy calls that toy "baby"! Doesn't she know that I am the only baby around here?!

I always have a toy in my mouth and I whine, moan, groan or whatever while prancing around the house batting my humans with my big tail. I am definently a talker.

Roxy does that too... its with various toys and treats... When she whines with a toy in her mouth she wants to play or hide it... when its a treat she just wants to hide it somewhere and safe it for later LOL

Guilty as charged! Especially if I'm trying to pick up something big and it doesn't fit or cooroperate. I bark and whine at it mostly. Ahh the frustrations of being a dog....

Sadie will whine and bark at her toys. Half the time it's right before she drops them down the stairs and chases after them. Then periodically she gets in a mood where she'll shake the toy and growl before tossing it and chasing after it. The only time she doesn't have a vocal play session is when we're throwing toys for her fetch. I guess since we're participating and talking to her she has less to complain about? hehehe

Yup. Winey McWhineypants here too.

I like to take my treat, run around the house whining with it, then give it back to whoever gave it to me so they can give it right back to me again.

Though ever since my little brother came to live with us, I'm much less compelled to do the Whiney Pants Dance. I'd better just take my treat and go chew on it before HE gets it!
