Howdy blogaroos! Happy Saturday! Looks like a rainy one here – so I’m thinking it will be short walks today. Get ready for 84 rounds of “Find the”….whatever. I can’t wait.
So I hear today is something called Blah Blah Blah Day. It’s actually not a fun day. It’s supposed to be a day when you follow through and do the things that someone has been nagging you to do. You humans are good at that. Somebody tells you repeatedly to do something (like take the car in to get that rattle fixed, or make an appointment for a hearing test – so the TV level can be turned down from max) – but all you hear is Blah Blah Blah and you don’t really listen. So today you are supposed to do those nagging tasks. At least one of them. I hope My Enforcer doesn’t follow through on her nagging about grooming us. She should clean the garage instead.
There’s an old cartoon depicting us canines and the fact that most of what we hear and understand from you humans is Blah Blah Blah. But that’s not totally true. We understand a WHOLE LOT more. In fact we understand everything you say. We just choose to ignore a lot of it, because you humans are pretty repetitive. And let’s face it – sometimes you kinda lie. Like when you’re leaving and you say “Be good boys. I won’t be long.” Your definition of long can be 30 minutes to 3 hours. In this case, we would appreciate a bit more specificity. Because we ARE listening.
One of my favorite lines is “What did you do?” Or “Who did this?” These utterances we fully understand as they usually occur after someone has done something naughty. Like shredding the toilet paper on the roll. Both questions are useless because in the first one you can clearly SEE what we did. And in the second, you probably already know the answer – and if you don’t it’s not like we will snitch on one another. Don’t bother with the questions. Just state the facts.
Another good line is “What are you chewing?” We all understand that line well and in fact, just hearing it will cause us to either run and/or chew the thing even faster. Just get out the treats and we’ll decide if we want to trade that piece of bunny poop we found for the treat.
The Coyote is a master at Blah Blah Blah statements. Like we’ve talked about before. Like when playing Find the Bunny. And My Enforcer says “Find it!” He looks at her like she has two heads. “You hid it, you find it,” he says. He treats everything like a Blah Blah Blah statement.
Anyway – good luck with your tasks today. Don’t work TOO hard.
Oh oh – and SOMETHING is going on here. My Enforcer has been cleaning like crazy. So that means either she is going away (which is unlikely) OR someone is coming to visit!!!! Maybe I’ll have more victims to ricochet against. We’ll see who it is….
Blah blah blah. Have a good one. Peace and paws up. Stay safe.
