Barking Questions – If only we could bark a few answers!
Our dogs bark at us. They look us in the eyes, then they bark. So we have conversations with them.
Duke: “Bark, bark.” Short whimper.
Duke: “BARK bark BARK bark BARK.”
Marilyn: ” Garry, do you know what he wants?”
Garry: “No. Duke, you’ll have to speak up. What do you want?”
Bonnie: “BARK! Bark, bark, bark.”
Garry: “I’m sorry, we just don’t speak dog.”
Dogs look at each other, clearly frustrated. I’m sure they want something and apparently, whatever it is, it’s quite specific. I get when it’s food because then they bark at the plate or the fork or try very hard to get right in there and eat some. But the rest of it?
Bark? Bark bark bark? Definitely a question.
They need to learn to speak more people-like. Or we need to find a better way to ask them the bigger question. Why don’t you dogs speak English? Are you aliens? Do you have green cards? Are you guys legal?
