My kids described it as a baby bear.But YES it's CHEWY...(from the ORIGINAL Star Wars films). You guys hit the nail on the head with that one. Now when I hear her, that's all I can think about.

Our dog's middle name is actually Chewbacca. https://www.goldenretrieverforum.com/...ad.php?t=44418
He's always made these odd moaning noises and now that he's a geezer he walks around like and old man mumbling to himself. When he flops down on the floor after a walk or playing in the yard, you can hear him clear across the house make this kind of pleased groan.

Bailey barks at the squirrels in the morning...very annoying...but mostly her vocals are cute. DH will crawl beside the bed (with Bailey on it) and peek his eyes up and start doing barking noises and Bailey goes nuts and barks and "talks" to him...

The strangest noise she makes I find is when she sees someone she loves and misses she rolls onto her back and CRIES! I don't get cried for much anymore, but when she was a little puppy and I'd leave her in her crate for a couple of hours, when I got back she'd be crying...I thought something was wrong for the longest time...It really sounds like she's in pain!

Maddie is very vocal, I think she tries to talk. We were in the vet and she was "talking" and the receptionist said "What does she want?!"

Brianna "roos" whe we come home from work, when we come in from the yard, when I come up the steps from the basement... and she "grumbles" a lot. At first, we thought it was a growl, but it's not.. just talking.

Maui, our Golden Retriever X Collie "roo'd" from the 1st day we got her... I think they egg each other on!

My cousin's Golden was NAMED "ROO" for the very same reason!

Our Sam does the Roorawl sound when he's really happy or excited with us. He barks like crazy at the front door if someone walks by with another dog. He sounds scary and threatening, but I know that if that dog actually came in our house, Sam would probably do a "whole hind end" wag and say "hi! come on in!" lol.

He DEFINITELY makes the Chewy sounds when he's chewing on his Nylabones or other toys. We call him our "Wooky", so I am giggling reading how many others have their doggies making that sound too, lol.

My first two girls Shiloh and Mollie were very quiet... even when they were excited they didnt bark unless asked to. Ruger is a totally different story... he talks back all the time... he barks everytime the door knocks or he hears a strange noise- Ive never seen a golden retriever be as protective as he is of us which... to me is great . Hes big enough people that dont know the breed are intimidated by him. Hes not aggressive just assertive lol... but he is DEFINATELY a talker!

I have 2 very vocal Golden boys.
Our older guy loves to sing and howl, usually at the instigation of our younger guy, who talks non-stop! They have some fairly serious and loud jam sessions daily. They do not have an inside voice!
Our younger guy has different vocalizations for what he wants. This is great because he is interacting with us in the best way he can. We have the I'm Hungry, I'm Bored, Throw this Ball, Come See, Someone or something is out front, Hurry Up, I cannot believe we're going swimming, the Trash Trucks are here and many other vocalizations. He also chirps when he really wants something, almost like a puppy chirp.
When I am one minute late for feeding them at the appointed hour (the young one has an internal alarm clock when it comes to feedings), I get a very loud scolding--howling, singing, barking--duet. It starts as soon as the garage door opens and the dogs come out to the gate that keeps them out of harm's way.
I love my two talkers, although I wish they would learn the words Quiet Please and Inside Voice!
