Oh Karlin you are wicked I think Leo had best come and live with me to get away from his wicked mummy who laughs at his misfortunes They are such greedy little dogs though, I'll bet the smell of that chip bag was just too tempting for him
Edel, I don't know about making human noises but Maxx snores louder than my hubby

2 of our girls have that sigh, they happen to be mother and daughter. You're right it sounds human! And they do it when they're awake and in the process of laying down (after they've circled about a dozen times!).
The chip bag reminded me. One of our dogs favorite toys is the cereal box liner. There are always a few crumbs left in the bottom and it's hilarious watching them try to get it. Just have to be careful to watch them the whole time to be sure they don't get into a suffocation situation.

I n response to your post about your dog following you to the restroom, I have a question: Do you have to hide any bathroom paraphenalia from your dog? Our Scarlett will go after used Q-tips(gross), toilet paper, and panties ( yuck). She is fascinated with and will chew on all of them. We have had to take panties from her more than once because she will go in the bathroom when my girls are bathing and steal their underwear. EEEEW! She hawks them when they are in the tub, and she will grab used Q-tips off the side of the tub and run as if she has found gold!

LOL Nope my Maxx is the perfect gentleman. He just wants to be wherever I am - he did once steal a bright (and I mean bright) red lipstick that I used to use on the kids at Hallowe'en (for bloody lips) and ate it. Not only did it upset his tummy but he also had a bright red mouth for about 3 weeks He also likes toothbrushes and toothpaste but i think that's because he likes mint
I do have a little 'friend' who stayed with me a few weeks ago and she would steal everything from the bathroom including the towel that was meant for drying me. More than once I had to yell my kids to fetch me another towel so that I could get out of the bath!
It is impossible, not to mention illegal to shut a door on a dog in this house - you end up with extremely trashed doors where they ahve scratched them to pieces in their panic to get to you
