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!!!

Oh!  And when a BIG WIND blows in the night time, I make a huge ruckus barkin' and woofin'!  I'm so loud that I wake up Mommy, Daddy and Little Miss Olivia!!  I don't think I like the BIG WIND!!

You guys have covered almost all my reasons for barking for sure.  I DO love to bark, bark, bark and dance around just out of reach when Mommy tells me to "hop in" the car when it's time to leave the park and I don't want to go yet!  Mom says that's very, very naughty!!

Comment by Laurie, Jackson and Delilah on April 17, 2014 at 4:53pm

Oh and forgot shadows, shadows are no good at all!!

Comment by Laurie, Jackson and Delilah on April 17, 2014 at 4:53pm

I have laughed and laughed at this one!!!  THANKS!!  Jackson can add, because one of the cats looked at me funny or is on my bed!  Also because the puppy is still in the fireplace (we have an electric fireplace with a glass front) and has been for 2 years!  Is he ever going to his house?  and because I can hear daddy's car 3 blocks away and he's coming home from work....woohoo!  Have a great Easter all.

Comment by Pedro & Alessandra on April 17, 2014 at 1:20pm

Hahaha, this is great... Here's Pedro's additions:

Because Mommy takes toooo long to fill up my Kong.

Because Daddy doesn't give me treats when he is in the kitchens.

Because Mommy is late for work (and I don't want her to go at all but I want her to give me my treats).

Because I can hear the garage door opening.

Because I can hear the garage door closing.

Because it's bedtime and Mommy and Daddy are watching televisions!

DonMarie we have 2 parrots as well. You are right about that competition!! But it keeps away visitors that don't truly like us just the way we are LOL!
Comment by DonMarie & Picco on April 17, 2014 at 9:39am

#4....Picco and the parrot go at it - that's a contest my ears can't handle!  

Comment by Dianne and Dulcie on April 16, 2014 at 10:43pm

And, oh yeah, because it's dark outside and there might be boogies out there!

Comment by Beverly and Eli on April 16, 2014 at 10:04pm

Because Chesney barked first. Because the groomer got the clippers too close to my head. Because the light is on at the house down the hill. Because there are leaves flying by outside.
