Dear Abby - Silly Things People Say

Dear Friends,

I'm so glad to be back!  I've been eager to return and visit with you.  I kept thinking of things I wanted to tell you, but I have to depend on my Momma to help me post here.  Unfortunately, she kept saying she had too much on her plate.  I don't understand that at all -- I don't even see a plate (and believe me, I looked!).   We made a deal that for right now I will post every few weeks but I will post more regularly in Fall.   It will be nice to have a lighter blogging schedule for summer.  More time to nap and enjoy the sunshine!

I'll share a couple of new pictures with you.   I am waving in this picture.  Momma says it looks like I am smiling a bit too.  I actually do smile when I am happy.

Here is another recent picture -- this was taken on Easter.  I had company and lots of excitement, and I spent a lot of time looking hopefully for treats.

That makes me think of something I have been wanting to mention -- people say some silly things!    For instance:

"Don't lick my nostrils."   I don't understand this at all.  I can lick a doggie friend anytime I like.   People have some silly rules.

(This one happens sometimes when it is time to wake up in the morning.)  "Don't stand on my kidneys."  Another one that makes no sense to me.   It's very comfortable to stand on a sleeping person.

"Please don't lick the floor."   But the floor smells so interesting!   I have to explore it. 

"You don't need another treat."   What?!   This is beyond ridiculous.  Of course I do.  I need ALL the treats.

Can you think of any other silly things that people say to dogs?  (Please feel free to ask your own pets if you need ideas.)   I would love to hear from you in the comments, below.

I am so glad to be back in touch, and look forward to talking more here.

My human auntie told my cousin, Oscar (shih-tzu) to sit then realized he was already sitting. And she didn't even give him an extra treat. Treats are always necessary.

You made my day with this blog post! I love all your pictures!

We love to lick the floor! Our Mommas have given up the fight on that one.

Haley thinks she needs her treats 24/7 she loves her treats and likes her naps too.
Abby we have really missed you but we know that you and your Mama have a lot on your plate.
I hope that you enjoy your summer.

Aliceson and Haley

Abby, you're so cute! My chihuahua, Tessa, would agree that her humans sometimes say really silly things!

Christie said...

What a cutie! Our little girl monitors the floor for goodies and does her share of head tilts as we talk to her, too!

"Don't stand on my kidneys." might be my favorite. Although, my pupper has a thing for putting his but people faces when they are on the couch. Silly humans won't let him stay. :)
