If you live near my house, you’ve heard the following exchange drifting out the open windows.
And yes, this post reflects actual conversations with my dog.
Honey (downstairs): “Woof.”
Pamela (upstairs): “You don’t say.”
Honey: “Woof. Woof. Woof, woof, woof, woof.”
Pamela: “Really? And then what did you say?”
Honey: “Woof. Woof. Woof.”
Pamela: “She said what?”
Honey: “Woof, woof, woof. Woof!”
Pamela: “Well that’s outrageous. Why don’t you come up here and tell me more?”
I have no idea what Honey thinks of my responses to her barking. I certainly find it amusing to “talk back” to her when she’s barking to tell me she’s lonesome and she wants me to come back downstairs or call her up to my side.
But should I worry that my neighbors will think I’m crazy? Or just assume they’ll know I’m making mischief by having a conversation with my dog?
Looking For Pictures Of You And Your Dog
Last week I asked if you and your dog look alike and I announced a little experiment. But we can’t do it without you.
You have until September to send me one picture of you and one picture of your dog so we can do our study.
Don’t wait. Send your pictures today. Click on the image below to learn more. And feel free to share my notice by right clicking to download the picture.
Your Turn: Do you have nonsense conversations with your dog? If so, what does your dog think of it? And how about your neighbors?
