Lucy here is quite a character. When she wants something she can be quite insistent and vocal about it. Once in a while, when she can't seem to get her point across, she'll sit down, flip her ears back, and bark in abrupt little yaps. Sometimes I'll sit on the floor in front of her and answer back in kind. I'm not sure we ever get anywhere with the conversation but she seems to appreciate the effort. It didn't occur to me until later that the issue was likely the dinner selection of dry kibble and she was probably requesting some canned food. Unable to get her point across, we ended up playing a bit before she begrudgingly ate her dinner. The next morning the Queen of the Household, as she is known around here, was back to barking orders. She finally got her favorite canned food and all was well in her kingdom. After 12 years of living with her majesty I guess I still make a poor subject sometimes.
