Conversations With Small Dogs: A New Trick

Buddy: Hey! Human! Human! Human!

Me: What?

Buddy: You have to check this out. I have done something totally awesome.

Me: (sotto voce) Oh, shit.

Buddy: Did you say something?

Me: No, no, do go on. What did you do?

Buddy: I have fixed your bed!

Me: Damn it, Buddy! I thought we talked about that! You have to pee outs-

Buddy: No, no — not that (although I do still think it would really help the room if you’d let me mark things more clearly). It is SO much cooler than that! Can you guess what I did? Huh? Can you?

Me: I shudder to think…

Buddy: Come on, Food Lady! Guess! Guess! It is so awesome!

Me: *sigh*

Buddy: GUESS!

Me: You removed the pillowcase from my pillow again, didn’t you.

Buddy: Huh. Good guess.


About L. M. Bernhardt

For a good long while (15 years or so), I taught philosophy at a little private university in northwest IA, and occasionally branched out into playing music, dabbling in photography, experimenting with food, and writing nonsense on my blog. The philosophy teaching part ended in 2017 (program elimination via prioritization), but never fear! I've just finished my MLIS at San Jose State University, and I'm currently on the market looking for new adventures in either philosophy or LIS. For now, I labor at a fairly interesting administrative job in order to support my dogs in the lavish manner to which they've become accustomed.
