Here are some more puppy phrases that your peoples may use but that can mean different things to us puppies. The tall guy uses these A LOT when we are out walking!
Phrase #1: GO!
He usually says this when I am walking in front of him and suddenly stop to smell something right before he trips over me. He thinks that GO! means keep on walking. What GO! really means is that you must be smelling something really good like candy or a hot dog that someone has dropped and you're not supposed to eat it! Just remember, GO! really means that somewhere near you on the ground is the best thing you will ever taste in your whole entire life.
Phrase #2: Come On!
I hear this a lot on our way back home after our walk. The tall guy thinks that Come On! means that I am walking too slow because he's trying to get back home to watch The Amazing Race! What Come On! really means is that he is walking too fast because HE is trying to get back home to watch The Amazing Race! I have to remind him that he is RECORDING The Amazing Race! and that I will be happy when The Amazing Race! is done so that we don't have to run home on our walks. Just to confuse you, Come On! will mean something completely different in about a month because The Amazing Race! will be over. In about a month, Come On! will mean hurry and get home because some OTHER competetive reality tv show will be on!
So there you have some more PHUPPY PHRASES for everyone to learn. And remember, "Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars".
Note from the tall guy:
Re: Jack's puppy parking picture
The picture actually shows Jack 'lying in wait' when he sees another puppy that he wants to play with. He just happened to do this right next to the curb for the picture. He just started doing this on his own - I didn't train him to do it. Almost everyone who sees him do it thinks that he is such a well-trained puppy! Silly people! Sometimes he will stay in that position and wait until the other puppy comes up and says hello. Sometimes he will wait until the other puppy is about 2 feet away from him and THEN jump up and get all wiggly and excited. I never know which way he is going to react.
