Doggie Talk

We rode into Birmingham for an appointment today and had lunch. On the way home we admired the
foliage.
Had the rain not come last week, autumn color would have been a wash, but it arrived just in time. 
The colors in the maples, oak and hickory are remarkable.
We passed a little mutt in a yard and he ran to the edge of the road to bark us up. 
It was at that point we did something that we've done for years without ever considering it.
A few minutes later, Jilda said in passing, I wonder if other people slip into their dog personas and have a conversation.
I laughed out loud, because I knew that any reasonable passenger in our car would have serious doubts about our sanity.
We have this voice that we use to say what we think the dog would say if it could talk.

"Just take it down the road mister, there's nothing to see here." 
Or, "Don't make me have to mess you up so bad yo mama won't recognize you."
"Hey, you don't know me well enough to be driving by here!"

The voice I use is my imitation of a young kid that's dissing one of his buddies. I know it sounds strange but both of us spontaneously say things that are hilarious......well, you'd probably have to be here to be the judge of that, and I'm guessing you'd be wondering if you should be committed too.

In the picture above, Ol' Buddy might have been saying to the UPS man: 
"Hey, I hope you don't plan to leave that box on my porch. When's the last time you've had your ankle bit?"

Here's a video of a song we recently recorded entitled Bad Dog.

  2. Love the song...and the talk! My husband and I do stuff like that a lot! You should hear the messages we leave on the home answering machine when we want to remember to do something after we get home...we laugh about what the kids would say if they heard it.

  6. Wow that was a good video!!
    Loved it! My big dog is a bad dog lately.stole the chocolates and candy canes and we came home to see papers every where and then at night he barfed all the wrapping paper. Good thing I didn't buy more stuff for the Christmas tree.
    The older he gets the sneakier.
    Lately he's very pesty and sneaky and hates his dog food. He much rather eat half a pound of butter. I am really thinking of tying him these days.
    I know this would be quite upsetting to him. He behaves like he is very innocent though. Wasn't me. lol
