parrot, perhaps

The dogs were going nuts, wrestling and snarling. I liken the sound to a dying, lovesick walrus. Patty sticks her whole head in Reuben's mouth, they run around like that. There is snarling and a sound we call "mrphing" and flinging of Patty's little scrawny body. And then some more loud dog noise. It is just obnoxious.

Caroline decided she'd had enough of this noise. "YOU GUYS! STOP IT, DOGS!" And she pushed between them. "NO MORE FIGHTING! STOP IT!"

Then I heard her sigh and say quietly, somewhat defeated, "I'm losin' my mind."
