So, I was just signing on when I casually saw momma's e mail from TBFR. And this e mail caught my eyes:
Hi all! Just wondering if any of you have to spell out words in front of your fluffs...for example, “out, goodies, hungry, walk, bark park, mommy or daddy” etc...and now we have to whisper or mouth the words to each because they understand what we are saying when we spell it out!! They are way too smart!!! Just thought I ‘d ask...
Of course there were a ton of replies. All saying yes... they are so smart, they know the words... and what struck me was the mix of surprise, a little bewilderment and a whole lot of bragging.
All right, first of all, hellllllooo it is our job to learn to speak your language. It is how we fit in.
Underneath this wonderful white fluff there is a serious brain, you know. When it comes to things that effect our quality of life, we do invest in learning the "words". The rest of that jibber-jabber is just "blah blah blah...." So while your entire discussion about the merit of laissez faire economics might be lost on Wendy [she really does not care about the strength of the US dollar v the Euro as it is effected by trade regulation] you just try and mention going for a walk and yea... she gets that. And she is smart enough to have figured out... "W" means walk, as does constitutional, promenade, passeggiata, or parade. By the way, I take offense to being told that my walks are a parade.
My question to you is, why are you shocked, or surprised that we do what we are expected to do?
I am also chuckling because at the Bash we, the Bichons had similar discussions about you guys. You meaning the two leggeds. How cute you are when you are worried about us. How happy you are when you get your face licked, and how sweet you can be. Yes, there is also a lot of griping about your needs to control our diet, your reluctance to walk, etc. etc.. But hey
c'est la vie...
oh, by the way... I am
