Photo Friday: the world according to my little dog

Here on the Farmlet there are a few words and phrases that are never said out loud unless we really mean it.

In order of importance to the Little Dog they are:

  1. Ball”  (ALWAYS spelled when we are talking to each other.)
  2. Kong” (Same as above)
  3. Who want’s breakfast/dinner?”  (abbreviated, when we are wondering if the other has already fed them their “B” or “D”)
  4. Is daddy home yet?”
  5. Clean-up on isle nine!”  (This one is handy whenever you have spilled something on the kitchen floor, or when it is time to go to bed and they are frolicking and barking with total abandon in the dark …  and yes, we do reward for an appropriate response at bedtime!)

This morning However . . .

Not even the number one word could get a rise out of the Little Dog!



When the north wind blows,

and a chill is in the air,

sometimes all that is needed

is a soft bed…

and a warm nose.


Stay warm, and enjoy your weekend my friends!

      Thank you Cecilia, he is a very special Little Dog, and very SMART too. BTW, I loved your description of TonTon in the shower. My dog Buddy is exactly like that at bath time. Never knew it was because of his Border Collie half. 🙂 ~ L

    Even though he’s a dog and my Dixie Rose is a cat, they have pretty much the same look in their eyes. You have cold, and we have our first truly whomping thunderstorm in ages. As a matter of fact, it whomped so much that I disconnected the computer and Dixie burrowed under the bed for a spell.

    We probably like our rain more than you like your cold, though. On the other hand, the cute Little Dog looks pretty darned cozy in his digs.

      Linda, I am so glad you are getting rain! I like rain, but I get very cold in winter now, so no, I don’t care for the cold. Tucker isn’t nicknamed the Little *Sun* Dog without good reason! His short fur and small size make him better suited to the warmer weather. And he DETESTS having to put a sweater over his head with that long snout of his! lol! ~ L

    Loved the post. 🙂
    We used to have to spell out words like that with our last baby we had, the dog we have now not so much.

    I love the photo, the eyes really do say a lot. 😀

      LOL! My parents used to have to spell out words around me too… but that’s a post for another “Once Upon a Time in the West! 😉 Thank you for visiting, AND for all the amazing things you find to share with us on your blog. I love it!

    By baby, I was talking about our last dog, who was much smarter than the dog we currently have. 😀
    Thank You very much for your kind words.

    Ha ha! We do the same thing. The treat word will cause a stampede, so the code words become pantry or closet instead. Same thing with “who wants to eat” becomes “go get the dishes off the floor”.

    My little dog does the same thing when it’s cold out. Of course if the beagle starts howling outside, that can change in an instant.

    I spell SNACK every day, but I think they’re on to it! I have 3 Japanese Chin (two are adopted rescues) that I’m pretty sure know how to spell by now! Love the photo!

    our word is squirrel. It can get the diva out of a warm bed (ours), down the steps and out the door in a flash. That order is correct. We have steps so that the mini doxie can get in the bed. She does share with us though.She loves her sweaters. She will be shibbering, as we say, and as soon as the sweater goes on she stops.

    • pixilated2 says:

      Little Dog is undecided about those sweaters. When it’s in the teens and twenties there is no argument. The rest of the time he hangs his head and acts pathetic when it is time to put one on. LOL! ~ L

So how about that? Go on; say something!
