bwoof, ghrrr, raooouuhhhff!
Well, this thread was inspired by Lina's frustration with Kubrick's low barking at noises in her hallways. That "bwoof" just caught my attention and I thought it would be fun (and therapeutic to Lina) if we could try to explain what our little guys and gals sound like and if you can- add what you think their language means
Jaspers bark is a medium pitched quick bark-- ruf- ruf-ruuof. he does this for passing squirrels parked trucks and especially the mail man. If he is anxious (like going to the groomers) he whines and practically talks-- arrrr, wrrrhhh, mhhhm puuuuh. If he wants to go out- or have us get something that Cash has stolen from him, or if he wants DH to wake up-- he HHumphs followed by pawing at us. When Jasper was young and if you just got in and had to run and do something and left him in his room he would let out one lonely mournful head back howl wa wa roooooo.
Cash's bark is practically a hounds bark-- quick and then long and deep. wuf, wuf wuooooooooof wu-wooooooooooooooooooof He also does a few bwoofs under his breath as a warm up to really rattlin the house.
Cash whines at a very high pitch when he wants something or wants you to pay attention to him. mhmmmm, mhhhhmmm when he is playing with Jas and he can't get what he wants-- warrr, weeer, whhharrr
so Lina, count your blessing that Kubrick says bwoof.
Missy, Jasper & Cash
