Dogs: Learn Another Language!

Yesterday I heard the best joke!  I couldn’t wait to come home and tell my mom.

This is me telling my mom the joke.

This is me telling my mom the joke.

So there was this family of mice that lived in this very nice home…but there was a problem, they had to share it with a not so nice cat.  This kitty was always on the alert to see if he could somehow catch one of the mice.  So one day, the mice were going out for a family outing.  The mom looked out and saw: THE CAT!  “Mom, what are we going to do?” said the children.  Mrs. Mouse said, “Children, watch and learn!”  She went out, stared at the cat and in a very loud voice she said, “ARF! ARF!”  The cat took off and the family was able to go on their outing.  The moral of the story?  It never hurts to know a second language!

Ha, ha, ha, ha!  That’s a funny joke!!!  My mom laughed, too!

In my house we speak three languages: English, Spanish and Lithuanian, and I can understand all three.  I know how to bark in Spanish: “Guau, guau!” and in Lithuanian: “Au, au!”

I’ve been asking some of my friends how to bark in their language and this is what I have so far:

Italian: Bau, bau!
Japanese: Kyan, kyan!
French: Ouah, ouah!
Indonesian: Gong, gong!
German: Wuff, wuff!
Thai: Hoang, hoang!
Philipino: Tahol, tahol! (Thank you, Sweepy!)

I’m compiling a list…so let me know how you bark.

Fluffs & Kisses,

    In the Philippines, it is “tahol, tahol!”
    But I bark the SuperDogBark that goes “woof, arf, awooooo!”
    That’s it.
    My work is done.
