Babbling Humans




Ever wonder why humans make extra words sounds when they are attempting to communicate?

What Momma says:

I hope you remembered to poop when you went out after breakfast.

Sounds like:

Blah, blah, blabbity blah blah POOP blobitty OUT blah blah BREAKFAST.



And she wonders why I don't listen to her.

Dexter done!

  1. Dexter, I wonder the same thing! Do they really believe we understand full sentences with verbs, adverbs, adjectives, pronouns and other such nonsense? Deluded humans.

  2. I couldn't agree more. For example:

    What momma says: "Don't you eat that poop!" (in an evil witchy voice)

    What I hear: Blah blah EAT blah POOP!

  3. That's probably the way human pups hear, too. I'm pretty sure Thor heard better than many human pups.

  5. We've long since given up listening to our Mom. She's got this running dialog and it's clearly just to hear herself talk. "Fi leave it! Abby would you pee, please? Abby get over here! Fi, LEAVE it! Abby, come HERE! Stay out the mud, both of you! Don't eat THAT! Damn it dogs, would you just come inside already." No idea what she's saying. Don't really care, either. Wave the bag of treats, and we'll come running. Duh. We don't need Walter Cronkite to blather at us. Just saying...

  7. Everything the mom says to us sounds like "blah blah blah" except "eat" and "treats." That's all that matters.

  8. I know that the pack would agree you 100%! It wasn't I adopted a deaf dog that I realized how much I relied on spoken commands.

  9. Oh Dex, I couldn't agree more!! You took the words right out of my mouth! BOL
    All I hear all day is "blah, blah, blah...walkie. Blah, blah, blah...eat. Blah, blah, blah....poop. Blah, blah, blah...NO!"
    Geesh.

  11. All I know is when I hear my mum say "NOW!!!" in her serious voice, I somehow have to remember the last important word she said in her "blah GOOD DOG blah blah blah Riley blah blah SIT blah blah blah blah blah blah" and do it instantly or I get an evil look from her. She claims she got sick of giving me the same command over and over (apparently the more she said the commands the more I ignored them) so now if I'm not quick enough she ends her monotonous droning noises with a loud "NOW!!!!!" Usually my memory is good, but it would help me if she didn't use so many other words during the rest of the day.

    Woofs,
    Riley

  24. You made my mama laugh so hard Dexter! When I first moved in with my family I didn't know how to be patted anywhere but on top of my head and I didn't know any words at all. My family talks to me all day long and I don't understand a lot of the words but I know they love me from the tone of their voices! Thank you Lab Rescue for finding me a home!

  25. Dexter, they do try to communicate with us. I am sure you know that we must humor them and look like we get it at times. It doesn't take much, does it?

  26. You're very wise Dexter, it seems Momma is just using a few too many words, something a lot of us humans do.

    ReplyDelete
  27. There's other words besides "treat?" Never heard em before.

    ReplyDelete
  28. NOw if only she'd said Ham, Dex, followed by treats and bones and the bouncy tennis ball!!!!
