Dogs In The City

I have been watching ads on TV for this new show premiering soon. It's about some guy in NYC(?) who talks to dogs and helps them with their "issues".

Seriously? A TV series about a guy who talks to dogs (and they don't talk back).

Andy you have lost sight of the fact that it takes all kinds to make up this crazy world of ours. But look on the bright side. At least he is not a member of DC. Or maybe that isn't the bright side. Think of all the fun we could have with him. We could tell him what our dogs are saying to us and find out what they mean. Oh I do have an evil side.

Do I see a jousting match in the future? Does Elizabeth know about this? You should be the one to tell her.

My first (as an adult) dog was a talker. I've been told it was the Chihuahua in her (she was a mostly Jack Russell). She could sit and have a conversation. Of course, aside from the usual, I had no idea what she was saying. She just vocalized a lot.

I have seen a pet psychic on TV--she didn't even see the dogs, just talked to the owners on the phone, and told them what their dogs were 'thinking'.

I could do that. Mostly what the dogs are thinking is "I am a dog. Dogs do not wear clothing, dogs run around and sniff butts and roll in dead things. Stop giving me a bath so often, get your dead butt off the couch and take me for a walk in the woods, and for heaven's sake, don't speak to me like I was an infant."

Think I could charge $250 an hour for that?

Dog Whisperers Speak Dog

Good Evening,

This is an interesting post.

This is not new, as phenomenal renowned Dog Whisperer Cesar Millán, has a Dog Whisperer Institute for learning how to. He hails from Mexico, however, has a tremendous following in the USA and the Iberian Peninsula.

Does anyone know who I am speaking about ?

I also know a North American Chef who is a Cat Whispherer. It is an amazing labor.

Ciao. Have nice evening.
Margi.

Hey people are watching all kind of "reality shows" and are totally hooked. What is it called "Real wife or something..." then there is the Kadarsians, whatever their name. The father is probably turning in the grave. But people are crazy about it. Honestly I'd rather watch some lunatic talking to the dogs.
