I'm not sure about French dogs but Dutch dogs say blaf blaf. Dutch cockerels say koook-e-le-kook, at least their cats make a normal sound grin

You'd think we'd have better things do do on a friday night hmm

I've just been reliably infomed that cockrels say koook-e-le-kooo not koook-e-le-kook. Oh the shame.

Dutch pigs say knor knor WTF?

I was going to post this following a discussion today with my Au Pair.

German dogs say vou vou

Czech dogs say uff uff

She thinks German's 'woof' is funny (she is from Cz) but I pointed out that sometimes we say bow wow over here.

Thank you for the correct spelling there MmeL

German donkeys say iaah

German cats say miau

and the cows say muuuuh

My DC were born in Germany, so I do know my animals. All those mother & toddler groups have given me lots of useless information

MarmadukeScarlet Fri 07-Aug-09 21:12:27

grin My excuse is that I was being spoken to, in canine german, by a non native with a strong czech accent.

What is up with those German donkeys? However I say that I cannot make a proper donkey noise.

Ok, I'm in trouble about the cockerel now. DP is ashamed wink It's actually kukelekuu but it does sound like my phonetic version...


Cows say Boe
Chickens tok tok tok
Cows boe
Donkeys ia
Ducks kwak
Pigs knor knor
Birds tjilp
Mice piep
Cat:s mjauw
Dogs waf, woef and blaf blaf
Frogs kwaak

Oh well at least my pig was right!

There's a table here.

Bella21 Fri 07-Aug-09 21:54:09

OMG. I thought I needed to get out more.

I know Brussels ain't the most exciting place in the world, but couldn't you find anything else to do? grin

LongtimeinBrussels, you have provided a full evening of entertainment in the slattern household! Thank you!

LongtimeinBrussels Sat 08-Aug-09 01:04:45

grin Exciting it certainly isn't! Only took me a couple of seconds to google it though to be honest and saved me the bother of typing out the French ones I know!!

MmeLindt Sat 08-Aug-09 08:53:44

I don't know what is worse.

Finding the time to do the website and put the animal sounds on there.

Or putting his real name on.

Derek, you sound like a really interesting guy

Thanks for that, Longtime.

LongtimeinBrussels Sat 08-Aug-09 09:46:08

Glad to be of assistance grin. I do think though that we have a debt of gratitude not only to Derek but also to FabBakerGirlIsBack for starting this thread! wink
