Bella and DiDi: Do you bark?


That may sound like a ridiculous question to most of our friends out there. However, we are amazed how many humans and animals hold their thoughts and feelings in.

We believe in barking. In fact, we bark at each other each day. Here is the dialogue from one of our recent conversations:

Bella: I was so upset last night when I saw you in my bed. Aren’t some things sacred?

DiDi: Your bed has the perfect sweet spot. Mine is too firm.

Bella: So work on it some more. I walked around in circles on my bed for a while to create the sweet spot.

DiDi: I will try it but I like your bed better.

Bella: *Sigh* Has the return policy for you expired yet?

Even though we don’t always agree, we are able to have a honest bark session. Are you free to bark with someone close to you?

  1. As you probably know, Popcorn isn’t much of a speaker. But there was once, when Popcorn communicated with my sister’s Westie, Giggs. They were separated by a glass door and were in their separate crates. Then Giggs started to wooof a little, and Poppy did exactly the same thing immediately after. Their conversation went on for several minutes! It was just adorable :}

  2. Haha I love your conversation! Daisy certainly does communicate with us in lots of different ways, but she mostly likes to alert us to unusual things outside or even new things inside with lots of expressive “bfffff’s” and grumbles. We love it! 😀

  3. Lola and I are opposites. I keep my frustrations to myself until I reach a breaking point and Lola barks with very little provocation. Perhaps we could learn from each other.

  4. To tell you the truth; I don’t think whee can bark! But whee are very open and accepting in our little herd so whee squeak up instead of holding back! 🙂

    Nibbles, Nutty, Bingo & Buddy

  5. Henry isn’t much of a barker, except when he hears other dogs in the neighborhood barking. Then he goes full steam into bark mode. I think they’re telling each other something, but not sure what. It’s very cryptic barking. Loud and cryptic.

  6. I don’t bark much, but I do bark a mean streak at the mailman. I usually say, “Do not pretend to bring mail, when you really just want to kill me! I’m onto you!”

    Love and licks,

  7. Doggy is a quiet man, he rarely barks, just at night when he sees another dog(his reflect) at the window, he goes up and down stairs barking, bless his soul.

  8. This is LuLu Belle of DogDaz. Sofie Bear and I have many meaningful bark-a-thons regarding similar issues as you guys. We also have to lower ourselves and talk to the cats sometimes too.

Talk to us! We're listening.
