Mic doesn't growl... he Honks. LOL The best way to describe it is a shortened, sharp, whine - sometimes high in pitch, but mostly low like a goose honk. He does it when we aren't paying attention to him and when he wants to go out. He also will roll over and play dead when he wants attention and we are busy... kind of like ... "you're killing me, mom!". LOL Dogs are to funny.

Oreo, our lab mix, yodels while Chyna (china) will moan if you hit that sweet spot scratching her ear and Kobi snores like hell.

You may want to post this to its own thread rather than having it attached to this old one.

Marli, the collie, "rarrs" when she's displeased with you or if one of the other dogs is getting the attention she feels she deserves. Baxter, the collie, "woo-woos" instead of barking-it's pretty weird-sounding. Jedi the Newfie-lab has a high-pitched squeal which defies description when he wants food, petting or who knows what. It's quite a chorus around here. Blue, the old collie, just snores

Same here for our little dog. It's hilarious!

Well, not a growl exactly, but my parents' cattledog will carry on a whole conversation with us. It's kinda like an "Arrroww, grrowrrorow" sound. LOL. More of a grumble than a growl. It's pretty adorable. That's the closest she gets to 'speak' LOL.

And my dog smiles like a human - she's mimicking us - but it looks pretty vicious if you don't know what she's doing - lots of sharp teeth!

Default that's a relief...

Our rottweiler loves to growl in the morning when we cuddle together in bed. At first I was a little concerned, but now I realize he is purring in his way. Thanks for this thread. Most online stuff points to the 'bad' side of growling...

Last year at Thanksgiving, my staffy was sitting in the living room watching us. He started growl talking and it really did sound like he was trying to join in the conversation. We were all in tears laughing. I wish I had recorded it. Love this dog! He does "purr growl" when he's being all cuddly, too, but nothing like that day.

We had a female mutt (lab mix) that growled when we would pet her. At first, we were like, what? We didn't know what she was saying. But we quickly figured out that she was telling us she liked the petting. Especially since she would nudge our hands if we stopped. A little more disconcerting was the fact that she would slightly raise her lip while doing this. LOL But in 12 years, she never showed any sign that she was anything other than happy to be pet by us.
