Sometimes, but I also do this weird little whimper/squeal like a dog would and my dog will repeat me then gets real hyper and wants to play.

A neighbor has a shi tzu that thinks it's a great dane. She barks at me and I bark back. Or I bark and she barks back.

This can go on for a ridiculous amount of time.

I have a MinPin who thinks he's a Great Dane. We don't really bark together so much as we howl.

Not a dog, but when I call Ming (siamese) from anywhere in my place - she answers and comes running. Funny little cat. Stand over her silent - then say "Ming" and she meows. <3

We had a german shepard and we would try to get her to howl. She would never do it and just look at us like we were idiots and she was right. One winter evening in Alaska, I was strolling with her under the northern lights and we climbed through a couple feet of snow up a large pile of rocks. There was no noise, nothing was moving, just us, the towering spruce, the stars, and the aurora. For some odd reason, I thought I would make another attempt to get her to howl. So I howled. She looks at me like I'm idiot and again she is right. Every dog and/or wolf within a mile started howling from every point on the compass. The place erupted in noise thus bringing our quiet evening to an end.

I don't have a dog, so when I bark, it sounds crazy.

One of our cats is extremely vocal -- and has become even moreso as she gets older -- and her vocalizations all sound like some sort of request, or plea. We spent years literally looking at her and asking "What? What do you want? Oh, if only you could talk English or we could understand Cat..."

And then finally it dawned on us: What she wants is to vocalize! She just likes talking to us! So now when she does it we just reply with identical "Meows" and such and she seems very happy blathering on and on with us.

No freakin' idea whether it means anything in Cat, I'm just parroting her.

When I had JRTs we would howl together.

Sometimes when we would go out for a walk in the mountains near by and hear coyotes howling, we would howl back.

I never managed to teach them to play the piano though.
