I want to talk so bad, I move my mouth when I go in the computer room to get Sara to follow me. She laughs. Consonants are easy to figure out; vowels are pretty hard. Consonants usually have the same sound.
So a “B” sounds like b…b…b…b…b – you know bubbles. But vowels, well that’s confusing – a lot! If you put two together, then it can sound like almost anything, then change to another sound all together.
Like ae… ai… ou… ue… Confusing! Right? How is a dog supposed to know that.
So guess what I did last Sunday. A bath, I had to get a bath. You try talking Sara out of something she wants to do. And Sunday she wanted to give me a bath. When it gets hot in Arizona, all the people leave to go to the mountains where it’s cool. The fleas come out like tourists in January at the Gem Show.
That’s why I didn’t write on Sunday, because you can’t use wet paws to type on the computer. I was really wet.
But don’t tell Sara, I like being really clean and smelling good. She might make me take a bath every week. I like when she uses nice smelling dog shampoo and I get really clean. Besides the hose had been sitting in the sun all day and the water was really warm.
After I shake off all the water she wraps me up in a big towel, and hugs me dry. Then I take a long nap. It’s like a spa for dogs. Then no more flea bites. I’m clean and shiny. And look at this, I have my own vowel.
