Phydoux Is Frustrated

It's been a little while. Phydoux has been busy. He shared the following story with me tonight. Perhaps you can help with his frustration.

What good does it do me to be able to communicate with humans with the help of a computer? I canít carry a computer with me to make my wishes know. Computers are too big. A lap top is how I drink water. Theyíre getting these crazy phones that send email but that wonít work. I donít like blackberries (I hate all the seeds) and my paws are too big for those little buttons.

My master canít understand me without the computer. Oh sure, he knowst when I scratch on the door I want to go outside. Iím surprised he doesnít think I know the door itches and Iím scratching it. Heís not very bright. If I carry my water bowl to him he will get me more water. If I slide my food dish across the floor heíll give me more food. But he misses all the other things Iím trying to say.

When he is eating and Iím sitting at his feet and he just keeps eating. I want him to share what heís eating but he looks at me and says, ďArenít you such a good boy!Ē Really, he says, ďArenít ooh such a good widdle boy!Ē I hate that baby talk. Iím 8 years old. In doggie years that makes me about his age. Maybe I should type on the computer in baby talk. Wonder how he would like that?

He sits on the sofa and I come over and start to jump and he pushes me away. I put my front legs up and he pushes them back to the ground. Do you suppose he thinks Iím caught? I got them up there, I can get them down. I donít need his help. He never asks if Iíd like to sit on the sofa with him. He is really dense.

Iíve got to invent a computer to carry with me. If you know any nerdy guy who can do that, I would appreciate it. We donít have dogs that are nerds. The Chihuahua is too busy trying to start a taco stand. The Saint Bernard is trying to open a saloon. The boxer is preparing for his next bout. We donít have any dogs who are computer nerds. You humans need to help us out.

Oh Phydoux, will humans ever learn? Maybe we (humans) need to learn to bark instead? Gus, too, has issues with that opposable thumb problem all you guys seem to face.... Good luck on the geek hunt for creating the doggie laptop - and keep using your human's computer to keep us enlightened!

I've been missing Phydoux. Now I understand why - he's frustrated. Give him a treat, tell him to get over it - that's what we humans do.

As far as way to carry his computer, get him a carrying case - strap it to his body, but so he won't be lopsided, fill the other side of the case with "weird juice" [for you to take on your dog trips].

What breed is Phydoux? Did I miss that one?

Very cute. Wonder what they are really thinking? It's a dogs life, ain't such a bad one after all.

Poor Phydoux. I know what you mean. Humans can be impossible to try to communicate with; they are such complex Creatures; I don't understand 'em at times (and I'm one OF Them!!). I don't know much about computers either except how to turn 'em on, go on the Net, do my research, or go to AD and post my stories! *Grins* O, I also know how to do e-mail! :) Better leave the more technical stuff for those who work with computers, like my next door neighbor! :)

Well done, Phydoux, and well done, Larry; bravo!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

Humans aren't as smart as Dog. :) Give your owner a little break, Phydoux. As for helping with computers, don't look at me! Enjoyed your tail--er, tale. :) I love PHYDOUX!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
