Great! Very amusing this dog-bark list. Thank you Faldage!
Interesting detail: only English and Dutch have the sound of very small dogs included (yip-yip and kef-kef).
Basque language is uniquely having a sound of old dogs included (jau-jau). Great list!

Everything has the meaning one is willing or capable of to give to it, I think.
