My prairie dog keeps barking

I'm not to sure on what it means.. But he barks at me when I come into the room several times in a row.. i got him out and was holding him and he barked a few times but wasnt acting aggresive.. What does it mean when he is doing this? He isnt fixed if that helps and I havnt been giving him much attention. for a couple days

the barking is called a yip jump or yahoo. Im guessing he makes a high pitched kind of bark and kind of jumps up, correct? Its a way of saying "welcome" and showing excitement at you entering the room, kinda like dogs wagging their tails when you get home.
