Bosco Speaks!

English: "Woof!"

Bosco language:

Last five minutes of your movie? Miguel Cabrera up to bat? Last ten pages of your novel? Just got comfy and half-asleep?

I'M STARVING FEED ME LET ME OUT!

Just started doing dishes? Coloring your hair? Writing a poem?

OUT! NOWWWW!
_________

Alternate version:

Bosco: woof!

Translation: "I love you, Mom!"

Shay: Awww. I love you too, Bosco! What would I do without you, huh?

For Mama Zen's Words Count at Real Toads. She asks for a little personal weirdness. I have regular conversations with my dog Bosco. I often handle both ends of it.

Sounds like Bosco has your number... and you his. A perfect relationship!

Mama Zen said...

Um, you already know I do this, too!

it's the cat here. Oh you just went to bed and are drifting off to sleep?

Your's speak to you too? Found this hilarious thing on the web about 'the texts between you and your dog' and I fell over laughing, wish I could find it again.

Love the Joni ( "I knew I was a GENIUS...") and of course, I love the wisdom of Bosco, who can push every button without even having fingers.

I have regular conversations with my dogs too - they are more responsive than half the people I know.

my 4 'kids' have me up and down all night. they sleep like babes inside in the a/c on these hot days and peruse the property in the dark, often demanding in/out duty from me several times a night.

That sounds like my conversations with Radar. Although, since he's a blonde, he's…well, you know. ;)

Great way to be always right :-)

I love it when Bosco speaks!

Weird? Not!
This Joni Mitchell is one of my ear worms.

This was such a sweet post! I loved it.

I do the same thing when Aggie talks. She's doing it right now to me. Sad little meows that will grow in intensity until she gets what wants...which is to go out on the porch again, even though I just let her in five minutes ago:~)

That coloring the hair could be a tricky one. When I do my roots I always hope the house doesn't catch on fire. I could end up outside with that solution on my head far far too long and either end up with white hair, or none at all.

Margaret said...

You supply both voices! ha ha. I haven't done that yet, but I do swear my cat understands far more of what I say than she lets on.

Helen said...

Woof! Translation ... Wow can you believe I am watching the Tigers and Yankees at this very minute? No score!

You are the best doggy interpreter EVER!

That little curly headed girl is the cutest!

The dog whisperer...I think the doggy has you wrapped around its paw. :)

Very charming. I love the idea of talking dogs--I have a children's manuscript I wrote once about one--Pearl of course my inspiration--I always wanted to get it up and published so I could take her with me to readings! Agh. I have so many drafts of the book, but could never settle on one and without her, I don't know that I'll ever be able to do it. (She wasn't just inspiration, you see--now a true ghost writer, I guess.) Thanks--sorry to drone on. Very cute. k.

he likes to let you think you're having both ends of the conversation. really, though, dogs use us as ventriloquists. ~
