Writer's Workshop-- If My Dogs Could Talk......

This week, MamaKat wants to know... If my dogs could talk, what would I want to ask them...

I have two dogs… a 15-year old Bluetick Coonhound named Daisy...


and an 11-year old English Springer Spaniel named Eddie....


Daisy was Joe’s dog and Eddie was my dog before we lived together…. And now they are OURS… At first they did not get along AT ALL….as a matter of fact, they barked and fought with each other so much we usually had to separate them. Things are better now, although they do still have their moments; but if they could talk, I’d like to know:

1) Daisy: Why do you constantly bark at Eddie?? Why can’t he even walk into the room or by you without you barking right in his face?? Oh and on that barking subject… are you losing your hearing and that’s why you bark at such a HIGH decibel?? And why do you follow us everywhere we walk... and can’t settle until one of us is sitting somewhere?

AND

2) Eddie:
Why do you randomly growl and squeal, even if you are just sitting on the couch? Why do you run from me when I am trying to give you your medicine, wrapped in meat…and then force me to shove it down your throat?? And on the medicine subject, does that Xanax really help you feel level headed?? I mean, you definitely act like a more relaxed dog, without that crazy look in your eyes…. But is it really from the Xanax that you take twice a day...or because you knew that if you didn't stop growling, snapping and biting at the kids (and everyone else for that matter) that you might not be around to see your 12th birthday?? :)

AND

3) This is for both of you: Why is it that you chose the middle of the night, while we are trying to sleep, to lick every part of your bodies for hours (with that slurping sound)…. And then get hairballs, so you end up coughing and gagging on the hair…in our room….while we are in bed….???


Inquiring minds want to know……

OMG the licking! I cannot tell you how many times I have sat straight up in bed and actually yelled "NO LICKY!"
I am surprised that Magpie actually still has a foot.

Cute dogs you have there by the way :)

Such cute dogs! The licking is SOOOO annoying. #1 reason people don't have cats: hairballs.

My dog sits and licks one paw over and over again until I tell him to stop. Drives me nuts!

Dogs are funny and truly have their own personalities.

Let me know if you ever get an answer about the middle of the night licking. It sounds so loud when everything else is so quiet.

*LAUGHS* I love it! :) And Xanax two times a day?!?!?!?! I have to give Freddy an anxiety pill every night, so he doesn't chew his paws until they bleed. It works. Your dogs are so cute!
