I have a 6 year German shepherd who whines at our other dog who is 7 months old. It is like they are talking to each other and I am really curious what it means.
Our older shepherd was not vocal at all until we go the new dog.

When the night- closes in I will- be there

GSDs are fairly vocal, and they have an amazing range of sound. Sabi whines when she's tracking, a low almost desperate sound that gets more pronounced as she closes in. She also whines at puppies but it is a lighter, higher pitched whine, usually when the are doing something she doesn't approve of. I would guess that your dog is irritated or annoyed.
