The Trash was orignally written by Dan Van Wormer, hacked on by me, disciple, hairywill, and very recently some bugs were fixed by zephyr2 and L18L, and a tidy-up by me.
I don't know exactly when that burp/belch sound file appeared. It may have been there before but not used. At the time, I was amused, but on more sober reflection, yes, it is not appropriate (don't forget, I used to watch Hey Hey It's Saturday, so you get an idea what humour appeals to me!).
Trash is not a PET, it is builtin to Woof (though, I think that there is a PET floating around in cyberspace somewhere). I have changed the sound to two-barks. I was going to use file 'leave.wav' which says "goodbye", but decided it is better not to be English-specific.
The change will be in upcoming Service Packs.
Note, if you are running one of the 5.5 pups and want to hear that belch, do this in a terminal:
# aplay /usr/share/audio/puppy-trash.wav

Would this suit for a trash sound?

I seldom use the trash can, so when I read this I tested dragging a file and dropping it into the trash icon on the desktop. If you guys out there want to do the same, make sure it isn't right after a meal -- your stomach will hurt of laughter literally

Silence is golden
A barking dog is equally irritating to some of us. None of these silly sounds are necessary. Fortunately, a quick symlink to an empty wav file replacing 2barks.wav and peace prevails.

Ha ha, yes, that brings back memories!
If they would release the entire 20+ years of Hey Hey on blueray, I would buy it immediately, hang the cost. Whatever makes you laugh, that really is, as they say "the best medicine".
