Default Do any other breeds "talk"?

You know how huskies make lots of noises? I LOVE it. I didn't think I would but after working at the doggy daycare where we have several husky regulars I absolutely adore huskies and they had me laughing so hard I cried on several occasions, and their talking was often involved. On one occasion I accidentally squirted one in the face with the squirt bottle when I was trying to get a humper behind her. The husky immediately looked up at me with a furrowed brow, stuck out her neck and woo wooed at me for being so rude. As I apologized she continued to give me a good talking to. I do NOT like barking, but I love their woo woo and other talking noises.

Are they the only breed that talks like that or are there others?

In my experience shelties and collies are talkers but they have a different 'language' so to speak compared to huskies. Lots of grunting and wooing. Nikki would mimic words almost. Pupperoni for example, she'd go woo woo woo woo. She would also howl along to certain music- Very Merry Unbirthday from Alice in Wonderland got her every time.

Trey was more of a grunter/honker. His favorite noise to make sounded like 'Owww' to me. Just all the time. 'Owwww owww owww owww'

From youtube:

This is the noise Trey made ALL the time. I called it the 'honk': http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFh7jU2aZD0

My papillons do not do this. They just bark and chirp and chatter (sounds like tiny monkeys/birds).

Ok, I fail hardcore at embedding videos, but here's Marley doing her talking thing. Sawyer and I have conversations in the morning; he whines, groans, woos, etc.

Zoey, my dad's Belgian, is a talker, but she barks a lot, too.

Webster's a chatty kathy too. We often joke that every thought he has comes out his mouth. It's different than a husky though.

We had a Golden Retriever/Shepherd mix when I was kid who would have "conversations" with you. He'd sit politely and watch your face as you said something to him, then when you paused he would "reply" with this lilting woo-woo-arrooo type sound. When he had said his piece, he's stop and look at you expectantly, clearly waiting for you to hold up your end of the conversation. He was a really cool dog.. "smiled" people-style, knew how to eat those popsicles that come in plastic wrap (bite, puuuull, eat, repeat) and knew a staggering variety of tricks considering what he had to work with . He's probably the reason I decided to get a dog of my own as an adult. And on down the rabbit hole from there...

Watson talks... He has opinions on many things.

With basenjis it can go either way, some are really vocal and some are the strong silent typle.

Watson does his happy yodel to greet us... He makes grumbly noises when his breakfast isn't coming fast enough. He woos, baroos, woofs, and rumbles.

Perhaps not always a breed specific thing, but a lot of individual dogs of many breeds talk.

Our first Rottweiler was a constant talker. Tango, my Border Collie mix, also was and Dance is as well. A friend's Border Collie talks as well. Journey does sometimes too, although differently. She grumbles and makes squirrel noises haha. Only when she's really excited though.
