Conversations . . . with Harlie

I was mowin' the other day and the neighbor needed to get his work pants dried pretty quick and the dryer was not workin'.

Could I help him out?

Why sure!

We tried to carry on a conversation for a few minutes at the fence but Harlie kept buttin' in.

Woof woof! (Keep AWAY!!)

Woof wo woof! (I mean it!!)

Me: Harlie, it is fine.

Woof! (No!)

Harlie, stop it.

Woooof! (NOOO)

Stop talkin' back to me!


Harlie! Enough! and I snapped my fingers.

Harlie sits. Woof. (Why?)

Harlie. (and I point to the house) either hush or go inside.

Woof. (AWWWWW)

Harlie, I mean it. Stop

wuf. (oooook)

She sits quietly. She still does not like my neighbor. Will run and hit that fence and make it wiggle much!
Harlie and I have conversations weekly. Not daily. Most times she is too busy bitin' the other pups. But she lets me know when it's time.

She will sit at me feet and look at me with those big ole eyes and just start yappin' and lookin' at whatever she is tellin' me about. Usually it's the other dogs actin up, which means they won't let her play. . . .

Hope you kackled today!

I was visualizing as I was reading. That gave me another kackle for the day. :) EnJoy your weekend!

Stop by my blog if you have time and tell me what you think about "where dogs pee and poop." :)

Lovely. I used to have conversations with my dog and I swear he understood every word, even when I was raving! However, he was more of a listener than a talker.....

Harlie sounds very chatty.

But at least she was obedient.. you know, eventually.

~Anita-this CAN be hilarious in person too. and sometimes. . not so much!

~Valerie-Harlie is definitely a listener too, she also has a big heart. But she is much more vocal than the others and she will get them riled up in a hurry!!

~ScoMan-She is VERY chatty and obedient, on HER terms. Unless of course she is going to get in trouble and then she will obey, but she pushes the limit quite often!! =0)

Pat said...

Maybe she was barking because your neighbor had no pants on? Ha ha!

KaLynn ("MiMi") said...

~Pat-HAHAHA!!! I'd been RUNNIN if that was the case and let Harlie have her way with him!!! =0D
