A Community of Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Lovers

So a while back, Meranda wrote about Mable barking all the time. She asked why. Everybody here knows that us Doodles are great barkers, but what makes us bark? Spencer and me started a list and we want you to add to it.

Why do Doodles Bark?

1. Because.......ya just because

2. Because we are really really good barkers.

3. We has to look after our humans an proteck them.

4. Sometimes it's a contest. Who can be loudest? Who can make Mom yell first? Who has the most different sounds. You know Spencer can do perfect Bloodhound now? It's pawsome!

5. Because the garbage man takes our stuff

6. Because the mailman brings us stuff

7. Because our friend 6 blocks over and 3 blocks up is barking in his yard and we want to say hi

8. Because there's a squirrel in the yard

9. Because there isn't a squirrel in the yard and we wish there was

10. Because another dog went by.

11. Because a cat walked by.

12. Because our neighbour across the street is in his driveway having a beer with friends

13. Because we're bored

14. Because we want out, want in, want out, want in......

15. Because there are people on the big hill behind our house.

16. Because there are deer/a big fox/a skunk/a raccoon behind our house

17. Because we chased the raccoon puppy up the tree and he is stuck there

18. Because the moon is out

19. Because that cardboard box in the hall definitely was not there yesterday....definitely!!!

20. Because someone we know came to visit

21. Because someone we never ever met came to visit.

22. Because someone came to visit the TV puppy and rang his doorbell

23. Because we saw a TV puppy who barked (Mom was real mad when she had to clean a lovely perfect pair of doodle footprints of the flatscreen from when we visited the TV puppy) - we are pretty sure she saved the human puppy paw prints!! - it's discrimination!

24. Because we saw a TV kitty

25. Because we are hungry/thirsty

26. Because Spencer/Elliott took MY toy!

27. Because Mom and Dad only took one of us in the car

28. Because it's morning and you have SLEPT LONG ENOUGH!

29. Because I'm so happy!

30. Because you came home and I thought you were never, never, never, never ever coming back, and I love you sooooo much!!!

I gots to be the first one in the morning to bark!

Comment by Linda Szalay on May 17, 2014 at 9:20am

Because I was sitting in the car waiting for Mom and Dad and someone walked by to get to their car

Because I heard the dresser drawer shut

Because some kids were walking on my street, because I saw some birds and wanted them, because I want to play and everyone is ignoring me, because a saw something that I never saw before, because this is my house and you can't come near it, because I am a doodle and that's what we do! My mom and Dad still love me though.

Because the Schwans Food Home Delivery Truck is cruising the neighborhood

Because the UPS truck/man is in the neighborhood...and, wait, gotta bark even louder now cuz he is stopping at my house!!!

Because the school bus decided to use the street in FRONT of my house, instead of the street on the SIDE of my house!!!  gotta keep that bus driver inline and let him know he veered off of his regular route (;

Because my tiny town's fire alarm/siren just went off at the volunteer fire station!!!...very important to bark extra loud on this one, just in case someone didn't hear the siren (;

Because a train is coming thru town

Because a harvest truck or seed truck is driving by

Because that big yellow Hummer just drove by & I just don't like that car!!!

Because the cute older lady is cruising in her golf cart that looks like the Pope Mobile (:

Because the boys down the street are racing by on their electric scooters

Because...ya, just because!!! said by Kathy, Elliot & Spencer (:

I just rolled my ball under the couch, bed, dresser, dark room, or next to your foot, can you please get it NOW?!

I want to thank dad for wrestling with me. 

I want my sister Sandi to move away from her bowl so I can drink out it (even though I have my own bowl)

An empty cup blew past me while on my walk with mom (I also stop walking when this happens)

Because there's a squirrel in my yard . . . a bird in my yard . . . deer too close to my yard

Because my Germany Shorthair Pointer boyfriend just ran away from his mommy (every day) to come stand on the other side of my fence and he's waiting for me to come out and say hello and I just MUST go outside and say hello before his mom convinces him that he MUST COME!

Because you are watching TV and I want my cheese-stick . . . my bear . . . ALL of your attention!

Because there is a snapping turtle stuck between the stone wall and my fence (and somehow I know I should just STAND BACK and bark)

Because . . . What else can I do while I'm waiting my turn to run the agility course?? (Silly mommy)

Because I know that no matter how annoying my bark is, I am just too cute for you to EVER be REALLY mad at me.

Big winds sometimes sound like doodle cousins who are sad or scared. It's important to howl back just in case!
Comment by DonMarie & Picco on April 20, 2014 at 8:33pm

But Trixie you should worry about big winds! Did your mom ever tell you about Toto?
