Last night I was working on my sewing machine while Laura played on the floor near Moxie. After a little while Laura started barking, something which is frequently heard in my home, and is usually courtesy of Laura, not Moxie. So I didn’t really pay attention to what was going on until a minute or two later, when she was still barking. I look over and saw that she was kneeling next to Moxie, barking at her. Moxie, who continues to prove herself to be the most patient dog in the world, was just laying there looking at Laura. When I looked over, Moxie gave me a look that said, “Lady, this kid is seriously crazy. Unless you start giving me more treats each day, I may have to hide under the deck for the rest of my life.” So in an attempt to keep Moxie from moving in under the deck, I asked Laura what she was doing. It turns out she was “talking” to Moxie and asking her what kind of treats she wants to have at our Valentine’s Day party.
So I learned two things. That Laura can speak dog and that I am having a Valentine’s Day party on Saturday which will feature both human and doggie treats.
