Brianne, my keeper dog, has a habit of talking when she wants something. Its not a bark or a growl, more of a vocal yawn that often sounds like "Feed Me" or "I'm Hungry". She will often make these sounds next to the food dishes if we do not feed her quickly enough.
This morning, Monarch ran to the food dish and made a very similar sound for the first time. It was very sad. I couldn't feed her because she was fasting before the ultrasound today. And doubly sad, because before she started eating the prescription diet and taking the Enulose syrup... Monarch was never excited about eating her kibble!
