Default Sounds From My Boppy

I'm not sure how to say it, so I'll just say it. I grew up with St. Bernards and my dogs never moaned that I can remember. Now, My Boppy has turned 2 this month and yes, she moans when I pet her chest when she rolls over, and I do it very softly and lovingly, not hard at all, so I know she's a happy dog.

Lately though, my Boppy will moan when she comes up and lays on my arm in the chair, as in when she's tired at night. I'm totally up to date on shots, she gets regular exercise and I want to know if anyone elses Chi ever moans. "Brief short moans" are the only way I can describe them, (sounds like I might make when I exhale at the end of a busy workday on occasion) and and my wife says she's just happy to be near me and all dogs do it. Am I over-reacting, am I being a worry wart?

I love my dog and can't imagine her doing this 'in pain'. I mean, this is the dog that I allow to lick my face to wake me up 3-4 nights week at all hours, to take her outside 'to go' O.K.? (mild LOL)

Does anybody elses dog moan when they are 'shifting around' getting ready to sleep? Any comments would be appreciated as I don't anyone else near me who owns a Chi, So I'm turning to you, fellow Chi owners.

Thanks beforehand and trying to remember that there are no stupid questions in life.........

Boppy's Dad

I think Gracie occasionally moans. My springer does it more often though! (Like anytime she lays down!) If Gracie is comfy & I try to move her, she kind of growls at me! Not like a mean growl, more like ugghhh...why are you moving me kind of growl! I think if she only does it when she lays down next to you, I wouldn't worry too much. And if she doesn't seem to be in any pain. If she starts acting like she's doing it in pain, I would definitely take her in to the vets.

By the way, welcome to the site!

Jack, my poodle, is a huge moaner when finding a comfy spot to lay down in the bed next to me at night. Whining/moan thing. He's doing it more as he ages but he's as healthy as can be. I think sometimes dogs like the sound of their own voice.

I wouldn't worry about it. I think your wife is right. Trixie does it to get my attention when she wants something. I think your Boppy is just happy and contented and when she is tired maybe she is asking for belly rubs. These little ones are such babies, aahh maybe it's because we spoil them.

Poco makes some really weird sounds just breathing because he has the short snout he can't help it. Bella cries somehimes teeny little cries when I move her or pick her up. I wouldn't worry much just have the vet look at her to make sure nothing is hurting her just next time she goes in.

I think I know what you mean, and if I'm right our border collies do it all the time. It's kind of moaning because I'm comfortable moaning!

Lewie grunts when I move him if he's tired! It's like ugh why are you moving me?! It makes me laugh.
