I told Tallulah she is going to dog day care today, and she is standing here beside herself.
I did not know that dogs really understood so much of what you say. I thought people were just imagining it when they said their dogs knew words.
Now, if I try to discuss quantum physics with Talu? She is lost. Mostly because I don't know what quantum physics are. Or is. But if I say, "You're going to dog day care today!" she tilts her head and acts the fool until we leave.
She also knows "walk," of course; "go outside;" "dog park;" and "Obama." I do not know why she knows "Obama," but she tilts her head when we say it. Maybe Obama took her for a walk once and I didn't notice.
How bad do you think Obama wants to just go walk a mutt, with no one bothering him except that pesky Pugle who always barks at us? I'll bet he'd just like a DAY with no 59 Secret Servicemen and no 930 cameras.
Other than the nod to the president, did you notice all the other phrases she knows seem to somehow benefit her? Why doesn't she understand, "Sew mom an evening gown" or "Go pick up my prescription at Target"?
Tallulah used to go to dog day care every day, in case you are keeping close track. But with Marvin's…abbreviated…summer salary, we have had to pare it down. Still, she is abstaining from eating my books and shoes when she is here during the day, so we must be sending her enough. Or perhaps it's the four-month-old kitten that keeps her amused.
Oh! You know what I haven't done in awhile? I haven't linked you to the web camera so you can watch dog day care. Last time I did this, it was a big hit. If you're lucky you'll see poor Oscar, the dog in a wheelchair. I have told Lu to be nice to Oscar and play with him sometimes. I do not want to raise an insensitive dog.
I will sign off now and take this creature to her fancy resort. Remind me to tell you about the time I took my cat to the psychic. I do not know what to tell you about my weird animal things.
