Does your hav snort?

Cody is sox months now and has developed a snort when he runs and plays hard. It's kind of funny but I'm wondering if this is typical. I have not heard of this one before,

Havanese shouldn't snort. Only the snub nose dogs should snort (shih zu, pug, pekenese, bulldog, etc) small dogs can have problems with their trachea (tracheomalacia??) , you should probably ask your vet to check it out at your next appointment.

Kodi DEFINITELY snorts, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with him, or his breathing. With him, it's a statement, often of frustration. He does it most often when learning something new, if he doesn't quite understand yet, and is getting frustrated. He also sometimes snorts when he gets in a big "fight" with one of his stuffed animals and gets overexcited.

Timmy snorts too, if I can call it that. He usually does this sound when he sticking his nose in his bed, or in the couch cushions. I don't know if it's actually snorting but it sure sounds like it.

I'm with Karen. Marlowe snorts - sorta. He does it when I'm not paying attention to him, ignoring his little nose taps or he's confused when learning something new. Sometimes it's in place of a bark, since Marlowe barks very rarely. He's got a whole range of semi-snorty and monkey like noises when he wants to communicate something or is very excited.

Quincy does more of a chuffing sound.

THIS, for Trooper too. It's funny when he gets all revved up and does it, because the more excited he is, the more of a dramatic snort he makes, and it sometimes sounds like a little piggy.

LOL.

Trooper is a Moptop boy! If only I could think up a registered name...

Kodi makes LOTS of "monkey noises"... so much so that one of his nick names is "Monkey Dog".
