Play Signals

Trying to get biscuits out of our improvised non-kong


What do you when the pup, which you just brought in from outdoors, leaves a large and odoriferous "calling card" right next to your chair?


Why you scold, of course, and point at it and exclaim, "Bad dog!" in cogent terms. And strongly worded, yes indeedy!


Then what do you do when the pup comes over to see what you are yapping about, takes a look at the pile, play bows, and begins to bark at it as if saying, "Bad poo, bad! What are you doing there by Gramma's chair huh? Shame on you poo, shame, shame!"...????


Well, I didn't know exactly what to do about the situation except laugh myself half to death and take that idiot dog out for yet another constitutional. Prolly was wrong to laugh but I couldn't help it.


I have had dogs all my life, most often five at a time, as five is a nice solid number, but I have never had one bark at poo before.


Never. Now if only he would "bark" outdoors.

It's widely known around here that if a kid or dog can make me laugh, they can get away with anything.

Ha ha! He didn't make just YOU laugh! My daughter got two puppies at Easter this year, and refers to them not as puppies but "poopies."

So Gil is the kind of dog that's "special". You know the kind that bites his crate...

LOL So your a gramma now?

I love dogs. And I love people that love dogs. And love people who can laugh at a pup's feigned indignation at his own poo.

Life can be good. A sense of humor helps:)

Dani, after years of the seriousness of border collies getting used to this little class clown takes some doing.

Jan, this little guy is hilarious. His favorite pass time is to pick up a bent riding crop that was laying around, and shove it around the floor in front of him making a godawful racket...or any other thing that makes a lot of noise.

WW, boy do I understand what she is thinking! lol

Beck, he is a clown. All he needs is a big red rubber nose!

Linda, so Becky says....

Cathy, I couldn't imagine not having a dog...or having several... this guy is such a comedian! He knows he makes us laugh and he likes it. Such a change from border collies, who are very serious dogs. I miss them...well, we have Nick, but he is a very old man...but I do love this pup.

JB, thanks, it is hard to stay mad at the little devil!

Lisa, thanks, same goes. Hope you have a great weekend.
