Make strange noises? Our little guy is becoming a character. Just lately we're not sure if he is a little "moo moo calf" or our 4 legged furry monster. Is it normal for them to "moo" all the time?:confused:

Yes, both of them do! I think you describe, what we here at home call the "Chewbacca-sound" after the Star Wars-movies. It is something between whining, growling and deep moo-moo-sounds. It is especially when they are playing and having fun :)

Actually he does look like "Chewy" with all that ruddy color fur. Soooo... I guess this is called whining? He does do it quite bit especially when he's trying to crawl under the covers on the sofa or wherever we are comfortably trying to relax after a long day.:)

Our cav calls the cats 'waa waas' when they go out of sight if he can't follow them :badgrin:

My Cavalier makes the wierdest noises, esp. when she is snorting sround the place - it sounds like a pig (we call her "piggy" when she does it), it's endearing! :D

Thank y'all for the replies. I am a first time dog owner ever. My SO had 4 dogs before we met. This is all relatively new to me and quite taken with the CKCS breed. Thought they were a quiet breed, but now all these new noises and expressions. Quite hilarious really.

OT: Is anyone else having problems replying or logging onto CavalierTalk? bleh... Maybe it's just my old pc.

Thank goodness someone else's cav snorts !! I was getting a bit concerned - I thought he was having trouble breathing, but found it strange he only did it when he thinks he's hot on the trail of Mr fox lol - I think HE thinks he's a gun-dog :badgrin:

Maddie's a quiet girl but Pippin...................................

Chewbacca personified. We call him Chewy as well (has a double meaning because he does still like to chew!) And he does the piggy noises. We say he's truffle hunting.:D

OT: pinkpuppy I'm having awful problems with the site. I try to change page or post and it kicks me out to a google error page. And then I have trouble getting the site up again. I'm not sure what is going on?

India is our Chewbacca - she always cracks us up early in the morning on weekends, when SHE thinks it's time to eat, and whenever someone is lying where she wants to be! :lol:

Yes, there are server problems. It should be fixed soon. :xfngr::xfngr::paw::paw::paw: I can barely post sometimes - and this morning I needed to log out of CavTalk to get ready for work and it took me nearly an hour to do so!

I can read Ilsa's grunts, she really tries to talk to me. She has a I want a walk grunt, I want a treat, I'm upset or play with me. They each have a different timber and rhythm. She is a genius.

Omg... He just made a new one! Squished up his lower jaw like he was sucking on a lemon growling at Animal Planet until he had to yawn and squeal like a piggy. Just because he couldn't get to the dogs on the television. Here I am still under the impression that Cavaliers are suppose to be dignified and sweetly quiet.:eek:

CHarlie is VERY vocal, always making weird noises, while Indy is nearly silent other than an occasional protective growl and her "roo roo" barks when she needs attention paid to her. :)

I have just started hearing strange new sounds out of Dixie especially when we are playing. She sounds like she is talking to me and just daring me to take her toy.....so cute.

Ah! The roo roo bark. He does that when he's playing with other dogs. Thought that was just because Jasper's hard of hearing :D - incidentally, have now discovered that "waa waa" means 'gone', not 'cats' because he said it to a disappearing magpie this morning :badgrin: I think between us all we could compile an English / cavalier dictionary ...!

It was so funny to read all of these post about our "talking" cavs! Alice is a huge talker. She growls and barks as if she is trying to talk to us. She started the growly thing right after we got her at 6 weeks. It's kind of a growly/whine thing. She will bark at other dogs now too, which is new, she does the roo roo sounding thing. She used to hardly ever bark, hopefully this will not escalate too much. Our Irish setter now barks entirely too much at age 3, and she barely barked as a puppy. :xfngr:

:lol: This is an amusing thread...

I forgot to mention that Geordie sounds just exactly like a chimpanzee if he thinks we're going to take him for a ride in the car.

And Chocolate is a very loud roo roo barker when she gets excited. :luv:
