Impulse is a very "chatty" dog. This morning (still in his crate, where he remains till the kids go to school so as not to be in the way) he was barking at one of the cats. I walked over to his crate and scolded him, and he wiggled frantically, stopped barking, and explained the problem to me in earnest canine language: "Ah-wooo! Wa wa wa! Wooowooowooo!" He "talks" more than any dog I've ever known except for Siberian Huskies, who often "talk" quite volubly. But Impy can give a Husky a run for its money. He sometimes "talks" so sincerely you'd swear he was trying to speak English!
