You may not be aware of it, but your dog can make several sounds, other than barking, from his vocal cords. These sounds may vary by pitch, duration, and frequency. Dogs can bark, howl, growl, snarl, whine, whimper, and yelp. And if he’s sick, he can produce sounds that sound like hacking and honking.

Dogs could even laugh, according to Psychologist Konrad Lorenz. A dog’s laugh, according to him, is similar to panting, where the dog’s mouth produces a sound when his mouth is wide open and his tongue sticking out. Other than that, dogs can even purr – a sign that could either be a sign of happiness or a warning from the pooch. Experts say that a dog’s purr can’t be similar to that of a cat’s possibly because of physiological differences on both animals’ vocal cords, but it might not be the case for this little Frenchie puppy, named Penelope.

At three weeks old, Penelope purrs like a cat, and the reason behind this is not quite clear yet. It sounds like Penelope is simply trying to explore the sounds she could make, and unknowingly making herself even more adorable than ever. According to owner Andrea Neistadt from Pendleton, Oregon, Penelope talks back, has so many things to say, and never runs out of sounds that she could make. Other than knowing how to purr like a cat, Penelope can now also squeak and grunt, and you can watch her short video clip here:

Isn’t she adorable?
Can you imagine how she would bark when she gets a little older?
Or is it even possible for her to learn “dog speak”?
Being just a few months old, we’re pretty sure she could explore more and learn more from the process. Best of luck to you, Penelope, and may you live a happy life!
