Ahh the purring gruntlets. Murphy does those when I rub his tummy as he lies on the couch next to me. Best way to relax while watching the news.
Benson vocalises a lot! Grunts and groans, little yappy sounds. And the snoring...he's worse than my Hubby.
Rumor used to stand on the gate and then lean over with his elbows out as if he was having a good old gossip..so reminded me of Les Dawson sketches!!!
Steo stands up there and if he feels he is being ignored we hear a little 'oof' (almost under his breath, and definitely minus the 'w') which he repeats every now and then, til finally it becomes a proper indignant 'WOOF'. Another sound is his happy 'Ro ro ro'. He also can grab his own collar & lead from a handful of 5, without ever getting the wrong one.
I'll stop there so as not to hog the floor...looking forward to reading all these and recognising in others what mine do too:)
Before Bess I had 'a dog' in the house. Bess is not simply 'a dog' - she's always there, in your face, wanting to be included in everything, wanting to know what you're doing. If Steve's fixing anything she'll be there watching his every move as if trying to work out how it's done. She's managed to switch the TV on before now, but can't quite figure out the combination of buttons that have to be pressed to switch Sky on too. No, no way IS's can be described as just 'a dog'.
