What about տռել / տռան ? Sorry for being "կոշտ" . . . but the onomatopoeia is kinda funny, huh? Especially the double "r" sound for emphasis . . . Maybe not "weird". . . but noteworthy!?!?

also, speaking of the poor "dog"...what about how "adultery" is "շանություն" . . . that is probably slang, though?!?
