We recently got a second dog. Before then I never really thought about dogs having their own "voice", but our dogs certainly have their unique barks. Cody's is kind of a crisp clear sound and Princess is more of a raspy sound. Both can get on your nerves after a while. This dog's bark will either get on your nerves really quickly or you'll just laugh when ever he wants something. If I was a robber I'd have a hard time taking him seriously. Of course if the robber came to our house with a pocket full of "dream bones". we'd probably be cleared out. He'd have to work quick though. They rip through them.
