Silly Questions Only a Dog Would Ask

I received a funny email from a friend a while back that made me look at life from the point of view of a dog. I thought I'd share some of the things in the email just for fun this Labor Day weekend Sunday. I hope that you are having a good weekend, it's a bit cloudy and muggy here, but we are enjoying it anyway. 

Here are some silly questions a dog might ask:
Why do humans smell the flowers, but seldom, if ever, smell one another?

Why are there cars named after the jaguar, the cougar, the mustang, the colt, the stingray, and the rabbit, but not ONE named for a dog? How often do you see a cougar riding around? We do love a nice ride! Would it be so hard to rename the "Chrysler Eagle" the "Chrysler Beagle"?

If a dog barks his head off in the forest and no human hears him, is he still a bad dog?

We dogs can understand human verbal instructions, hand signals, whistles, horns, clickers, beepers, scent ID's, electromagnetic energy fields, and Frisbee flight paths. What do humans understand?

More meatballs, less spaghetti, please.

And here is a list of things a GOOD dog must remember that was also in the email:
  1. The sofa is not a 'face towel'.

  2. The garbage collector is not stealing our stuff.

  3. I will not play tug-of-war with Dad's underwear when he's on the toilet.

  4. I don't need to suddenly stand straight up when I'm under the coffee table.

  5. I must shake the rainwater out of my fur before entering the he house - not after.

  6. I will not sit in the middle of the living room and do any inappropriate licking in front of guests.

  7. The cat is not a 'squeaky toy' so when I play with him and he makes that noise, it's usually not a good thing.

Yorkie owners may enjoy a bit more humor, click the image for more information:

Oh, and we'd also like to invite you to visit a friend's doggie blog that goes by the name "Dog Pawsitive Tidbits".

We hope the silly little list above has given you a smile, and do wish you a very happy Labor Day weekend!
