If you had one whimsical wish.......

I was watching my boys (fur companions) watching me last night and I found myself wondering what the heck they were thinking. So it made me think about this thread.

I wish my dogs could talk so that I can understand them for one day. I would love to know what goes through their heads and what they are thinking... I could pretty much guess most of it!

So what is your whimsical wish?

Careful what you wish for. My little Bichon, Sasha, can talk. She's been doing it since she was about nine months old.

You'd think we'd have some great conversations, wouldn't you? Not a chance.

She moves her lips when she reads and she's a Democrat.

I almost jumped out of my skin when I read this! I had this same exact conversation with James a few nights ago. I have had this same "wish" for years! I have always said that there should be one day a year that we could sit down with our pets and explain things (like why a dog should not eat out of the catbox, and why kitties should not shred the furniture) and for them to let us know how things are with them and if there is something we could do that would make them happier. I was going to start this same exact thread (but with a different title--your title is better) before we left on our vacation, but I didn't have the time. I am absolutely not joking. Wow!

My wish would to be to be able to travel the world for a year with my girlfriend. I'd love to share the world with her.

A lovely old lady was sitting in her rocking chair on the patio with only her faithful dog for company reminiscing about her young days. Because she was such a kind hearted person the good fairy decided to grant her a wish to keep her spirits up in her twilight years.

The good fairy appeared and asked her what she would like, "If only I were a Princess and my loyal dog were a Prince I would live happily forever" she replied. The good fairy granted her wish, she turned in to a beautiful young Princess and the dog turned in to a handsome young Prince.

The Prince then rose to his feet, lent over and whispered in her ear "I bet you're now sorry you had me neutered all those years ago"

So be careful what you wish for Ladies
