Fortunately, they're relatively simple words. No more than two syllables. Which is a good thing since Marianne nor I are stellar spellers.
It's just the way it is. Amidst all the jabberin' that goes on around here on a daily (and nightly) basis, some words have to be s-p-e-l-l-e-d.
Perhaps you need to spell some words around your home as well.
I'm talking about words like ball, walk, leash and the biggie, RIDING. As in, "You wanna go RIDING???"
For some reason, THAT word, more than any other, throws the crazy switch in 'em. Must be the d-o-g equivalent of winning the lottery.
What is it about r-i-d-i-n-g? Maybe it's the novel sights and smells they get to collect...Maybe it's fun to leave nose prints on the interior glass. Maybe it's the hope they'll get a peek at that big stud Shepherd down the street.
Our d-o-g-s don't know that they are d-o-g-s. We've never broken the news to them.
We've had cats and they didn't like to go r-i-d-i-n-g....They'd flip out. We'd have to drug 'em. Come to think of it, cats are so cunning that they were probably fakin' flippin' out just so we'd give them drugs.
Never had to spell around a cat.
Would've just ignored me anyway...
