Are your females more vocal?

Annie is a different story. She barks a lot more then Tiga. She barks when she looses something under the couch, if Tiga won't play with her, if she has to poop, if she's hungry, if she gets too excited, etc. She also "talks" a lot too. She sounds like Chewbacca when she gets going. And her bark is so high pitched! So much louder then Tiga's.
I'm just curious if others have similar experiences with male vs females or if it's just coincidence.
Hope you're all keeping warm! It's so cold here I can't take the dogs out longer then 5 mins at a time. (-30 C today!!! -22 F)

The bitch isn't the noisiest but she starts the others off then retreats to watch them get told off.
If we're talking noisy you'd have to go a long way to beat my JR.

My oldest female BC has become the barkiest dog as her hearing has started to go. She was always barky, but now it's about to drive me to drink. She makes few other noises.
My other female, a mutt, rarely barks but has a high pitched squeak, and groans.
My males, on the other hand, bark, yodel, roo, warble, groan, moan, and make all kinds of noises. I'd say the boys win at my house for depth and type, but June wins for flat out quantity and volume.

I think it's a pretty individual thing, but that some vocalization types may run in families. Also I've had pups who were rather vocal, but did not grow up to be vocal adults.
I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of stars makes me dream.

Same temp here again today. There seems to be no end in sight. We`re all going a little shack wacky. So jealous of t-shirt weather! I`d be happy with -2 at this point. Anything warm enough to walk the dogs would be good.
