[tlhIngan Hol] expressing baby animals (and words for dog)

Well whatever it is, it’s noisy – {chuS} “be noisy”.

"A rodent that mostly lives underground and makes an annoying noise." (KEBH [ie. “Klingon Empire: A Burning House” series])  It was first referenced in Keith R.A. DeCandido's novel “Enemy Territory”.  The spelling was vetted by Okrand in DeCandido's “The Klingon Art of War”.

I’d forgotten about this one as well.  Has anyone other than DeCandido used it?

I wonder how the {chuSwI'} fits in all this, which I was under the impression that it's a mouse/rat thing.
