Have you ever wondered what dogs would say if they could speak English? I often wonder what my dog is thinking and speak for him. For example, today I was determined to break his habit of sneaking on the couch when no one was looking so I flipped up the cushions. He stood and watched me do this and this is how I imagined our conversation went:
Dog: “Seriously? Is this really necessary?”
Me: “Yes, it’s time you listened. Now go lie on your bed.”
Dog goes reluctantly to his bed and I exit the room.
A few minutes later I re-enter the room to him curled up in the leather chair.
Dog: “Technically, I’m not on the couch.”
And then I imagine him doing a victory dance as I shake my head and laugh.
