Sometimes Monty will make a rumbly-grunty noise that sounds distinctly like a cat purring. Walter doesn't. Sometimes it seems like he wants something, sometimes he seems quite content. Does your dog purr? What do you think it means when he does? I like it, it's a very cute, calming sound.

I snore and whine. That is about it. Skippy makes happy grunting noises.


Anything if you- just throw the- ball!!!

Mine will kinda sigh when they have an itch or tickle they can't quite get and I reach in and get it for them. It is very much an "oh yeah! That's the spot!" kind of moan. It's cute! Other than snoring like old ladies (mainly Scarlet), no other strange noises here. They do have barks that will knock down brick walls.... laugh out loud

My little Dubs makes cooing sounds and has a funny little growl/purr noise.

She is an odd little dog, and has all kinds of "instinct" behaviors, like burying her food in her blankets and doing little dances around the water dish before she drinks.

DING! Fries are- ready!!!

Kayla sounds like she purrs when excited, but when she is REALLY excited she winneys and snorts like a horse. It is loud and rather funny. Sometimes I look around for a minature horse!

Im just a little- guy

My dog makes weird sounds that other dogs don't.

He makes noises that sound like weird growls/grunts. He'll do it when I pick him up, play with him or pay attention to him.

I should get this on video, because it's really hard to explain.
