I’m just wondering whether anybody else’s lab is a “motor-mouth”? As some of you already know, our Bella (who died at age 10 last summer) hardly ever barked. In fact she would startle us when she did, and until she was almost 5 months old we never heard her bark at all. In her later years she’d whine when Rob left the house - wanting so badly to go with him, but she was SO quiet most of the time. Molly, on the other hand, is 4 months and NEVER quiet. She doesn’t bark at other people (thankfully) but she barks at us when she wants something, and she whines, and she moans, and she chirps, and sometimes she even growls, but generally she makes all manner of strange sounds. I’ve never before had a dog that does this. It’s kind of hilarious, but it’s also kinda stressful because I feel like she’s trying to tell us things and we can’t understand her. So I just wondered what others’ experience has been and if there’s actually a “language” happening there, or if she just likes to make noise.
