As far as I'm concerned that's totally a Basenji thing. My lab-basenji cross has done it for years and it so charmed me, but when we got Bassit, the purebred, and she did it too, I was thrilled. It's adorable, and makes it a lot easier when she's making me get up at 2 in the morning to let her out.
Shaye also sort of squeaks when she yawns - I think it's something most of them do. Yesterday she sort of muttered when on a long ride, because she didn't want to stay in the back seat - cute low sound. Whenever we have to put her in the crate because we are going off, she screams and it's the most dreadful sound - she also still pees and poops in the crate - I'm really hoping she can get used to it, as even though we try, we cannot be here 24/7…..
Anyone else have that problem?
Katie does a yawn-morph. Whenever she wants someone to go out with her, she starts with the yawn and morphs it into the 'owe' sound. Sometimes when she snaps it off quickly it sounds eerily close to the word out.
I'd love to hear the audio of the hissing goose sound rnasto. I can't begin to imagine that coming from a B. It would scare the crap out of me:D.
(I had a couple of mad hissing goose experiences when I was younger–a friend had them as watch dogs on their horse farm)
