Does your dog make "yawn noise"?

Yoshi always make a great loud yawn noise every time he yawns. I mean LOUD... like either he's just had his foot trampled or he's THE most exhausted dog in the world or THE most bored dog in the world. I've gotten used to it, but I've recently realized that I'm picking up on the habit. I never used to make yawn noise at all when I yawned but now I keep catching myself doing it... sometimes even in public. Now a yawn doesn't really feel like a proper or really complete yawn if I DON'T make a big loud yawn noise like he does!

What's worse is that while his yawns are only a couple of seconds in duration thereby only making loud yawn noise for a couple of seconds mine are much much longer in duration thereby my making loud yawn noise for AGES. Then he has the gall to give me the stink eye like I'm some kind of weirdo for making such loud yawn noise for such a long duration. But he started it and got me hooked on it! The fink.

1. Our GSD does that.

Loud and long when she does it.

The Border Collie never does.

The Liddle does it too, but very quietly. Not silent. Just quiet.

2. It is the main sound my dogs make.

They're not really yawning, it just looks the same. My dogs are basenjis, so they don't bark at all. They "yodel" only infrequently. The yawning sound is their usual means of getting our attention. They can make the sound louder or quieter - it can be positively emphatic, but is usually no louder than a normal speaking voice.

4. They yawn, they sigh, they burp ...

... they sneeze, they fart, they cry, they "grumble" ... pretty much every sound we make.

5. Actually, the "yawn" is generally understood to be a dog trying to calm you down...

or placate an excitable or aggressive dog. Along with looking down and to the side or even just a repetitive blink, yawning is a dogs way of telling you to relax already.

7. I have clients who are always telling me that after their dog ate the priceless...

oriental rug and they stood over him with smoke coming out of their ears, Fido would sit there and yawn in their face. They would take this to mean that the dog was bored with their frustration.

8. Our Jimmy dog, who passed away last year

used to make all sorts of cute human-like vocalizations including yawns. One of my favorites was a kind of annoyed 'harumphff' if he was disappointed. For instance, someone pulling something other than one of his treats out of the cabinet...He'd be intently staring at what was going on, excited enough to be oblivious of the drool, only to have his hopes dashed and day completely ruined!1!!1 At that point, he'd do a loud and exaggerated 'harumphff' along w/a dejected, slow, dramatic settling into his dog bed, ending with a kind of deep and low 'umphff'.
