|Rita flees the big dogs. "Hey! Come back! You said you'd skinny-dip with us!"|
I try to explain to her: "Do you remember how that big dog scared you? Well, you just did the same thing to that little dog. Get it?" No, she doesn't get it. If only she spoke English!
On second thought, I'd rather she didn't speak English. I'd hate for her to be blabbing to everyone about what goes on around here. ("You should see my Momma. She sits in front of that computer all day, and she hardly gets out of her PJs! Some days, she doesn't even brush her hair!")
I wish she understood English. Hmmm, maybe she understands Spanish - after all, she's from Mexico. Unfortunately, all I can say to her in Spanish is "Two beers, please" and "Where is the bathroom?" No point asking where the bathroom is, as she'll just point outside, but maybe I can at least train her to fetch beers for the hubs and me!
What would you like to be able to explain to your dog/pet? Leave a comment and let me know.
If you are doing a little early Christmas shopping for the dog-loving reader in your life, how about a signed copy of What the Dog Ate? I'm now selling signed copies via Cometdog.com, for the low, low price of $14.95, which includes shipping. (Of course, unsigned copies make great gifts too, and those are available at Amazon, B&N, and CreateSpace.) Ten percent of the profits on all print sales goes to Best Friends Animal Society!
You should check out everything else in the Cometdog shop. Lot of fun stuff. At a minimum, take a peek at the main page to see pics of lots of cute pups (including Rita!) in their bunny ears. Too cute!
Finally, remember last Friday's post when I tagged four authors to post about their latest works in progress? Well, they all played along! You can read their posts at the following links: Samantha Stroh Bailey, Cat Lavoie, Isabella Louise Anderson, and Carol Bryant.
Thanks again to these lovely ladies for participating!
