    Morgan isn't a big talker, really. He will bark at the door and grunt/snort/etc. while playing, but he doesn't ever really "hold a conversation."

    ETA: Siren's "talking" sounds cute. ;)

    Dance does and I love it. Two past dogs were talkers as well. It's one of my favourite behaviours. :)

    Most of the time I can't get him to SHUT UP.

    He talks a lot.

    I could do without her barking, it's not horrible most of the time, but incessant when she sees a cat/ small critter etc...

    However the "talking" I adore.... You can talk to her and she'll "doggy" talk back.... She's the first dog I've had that does it like this! I've had dogs that'll do it now and again, but never like her!

    Duncan talks, he howls and "Wah weh mah meh whooooo!"

    He'll do it if he wants you to pat him and you just stare at him like "What's the magic word?"

    Dixie is a loud mouth. ;) She goes woo woo too and grumbles with toys in her mouth. I think it's funny and she totally makes me smile. :D

    Gusto never shuts up. I refer to the noises he makes as "humming" but it is far weirder and more complex than that.

    This.

    Obi is a grumbler. He grumbles and talks and if it doesn't get him what he wants, it progresses to barking.

    We're working on it... We've been working on it for five years. lol

    Cricket talks a LOT!!!! She sort of sounds like a gremlin sometimes, but she will woo woo at you and actually sometimes sounds like she is trying to mimic your words. It's so cute. She especially does it if she wants something from you.

    Bamm not so much... He will grumble or bark if he is frustrated or if you aren't throwing his ball for him, but that's about the extent.

    Joey not so much as well though he barks incessantly when he is playing and that's just ugh annoying at times. When he plays 'bitey face' with other dogs though he sounds like chewbacca.

    Uh, yes. LOL. Georgie makes hysterical noises, I never heard a dog make sounds like her before we got her (I have since met a dog or two that makes the same sounds.) Payton still sings for me on occasion. Both he and Auggie are notorious wookie-noisers.
    Pepper makes funny noises too. To me she sounds kinda like Blue from Blue's Clues LOL.

    Pip talks a lot. He does a weird trill almost like a bird when he's super excited, and he grumbles the rest of the time.

    The others not too much. Maisy is a whiner when she gets excited, and Squash is a barker when he wants something, but otherwise not too bad.

    Robyn and Trin will talk and sing when I come home from work, or if I've been gone along time. They will also grunt and mutter as they dig in the sand.

    They talk to each other all the time when playing but only in one particular game they play. One is on one side of a bench, the other on the opposite side and peeking underneath. They will stand there and jabber for ages before actually playing.

    Skye..omg yes. All the time. She's the type that if you let her, she'll 'talk over you' when you are talking to someone. Attention *****.
