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!
