|Neither of mine is super talkative, but they do have their sounds that they make in certain situations.
Ava gets loud with her husky-like "Oww-row-row" and "Waaa-waa" when we're pulling in to our former neighborhood and would ask her "Where's Baby!?" (the neighbor's Yorkie) It got to the point where we could ask her any dumb question and get a bunch of funny noises out of her. She'd only do it while we were driving down the street to the end of the culdesac though. Or sometimes when we were arriving at a park, if we asked her about the squirrels she would start "talking"
In the pet store or at the vet's office she's obnoxiously noisy with a higher-pitched yap that she does to beg for attention. She ADORES vets.
She's very growlly about suspicious people or noises (but it's all an act)
When my husband gets goofy BOTH the dogs will bark at him.
Nix does this really cute howl which sometimes follows a big yawn...He yawns for EVERYTHING. Stress signal or not. He yawns when he's stressed, when he's excited, when he's hungry, you name it... Unfortunately he doesn't always do a cute howl when he yawns and sometimes it's more of an annoying ear-piercing whine. I've tried praising the howl in hopes that he'll learn. The frequent yawning is annoying, but if it can't be stopped then at LEAST I wish he'd do that cute howl more than the annoying whine.
Oh, also when Ava is bored or begging for us to move over and give her a spot on the couch (yes, she does this...) she'll stand there and stare at us and make these little grumbles. "Grrr... Hmmm... Grr... Grrrrr... Hmmm..." until we move. It's actually more adorable than it sounds. (But if we really don't want to move we either tell her to go away, or she eventually gives up on her own.)
She's a bit more talkative than Nix.
