Hello Everybody. Autumn the Puppy here.
I know today is D-Day on the human calendar, but that's covered in the post below mine. I've dug up a different topic to discuss today.
In last weekend's Sunday Funnies, Ms. Waxy Dragon talked about students and the current school year coming to an end.
But did you folks know that I go to school too?
Granted, I'm not sure why they call it obedience school. I think I behave pretty good for a golden retriever, but anyway, I have learned a lot. Yet that doesn't mean I know everything.
Why do humans stop to smell the flowers, but you guys never stop to smell each other? Wouldn't you like to get to know your friends and neighbors better?
How come a lot of the fancier cars you people drive are named after other animals, but the only vehicle you name after one of us canines is a Greyhound bus?
With time and patience, us dogs can learn verbal instructions, hand signals, whistled commands, beepers, horns, clickers, scents, Frisbee and tennis ball flight paths, and (believe it or not) even electromagnetic energy fields! What do humans understand?
After all, when I start barking too much, I'm told I'm a bad dog. But if I didn't have something important to say, I wouldn't be barking to begin with!
And if a dog barks in the forest and there's no one around to hear, are they still a bad dog?
We'll have to continue this discussion another time. But before I go (I mean leave, not that! I AM housebroken!), just remember one thing: when you serve a dog an Italian meal, MORE meatballs, less spaghetti.
We'll be back next weekend with more Sunday Funnies. Have a good week everyone.-AtP.
