Did I stump you with today’s word(s)?
It is Mischief Monday, as well as being the A to Z Challenge day for the letter “L”.
Remember this photo from last week?
“My what nice teeth you have! Were you yawning or just talking in that photo!! Love your birthday toy. Looks like fun!
Diane and Rocco”
and I answered…
“You’d better believe that was talkin’!”
Okay, I’ll tell y’all what the word(s) mean…”Latrant” means barking. “Latration” means the act of barking.
Barking is my Humans number one pet peeve about me. Since it was mischief Monday it only seemed fitting to discuss it here.
I don’t bark unless I’m excited or someone comes to the door.
What really gets my Humans is when I quietly wake one of them or ask them for something, then, after they are up and moving…I just can’t help it!…I start barkin’ and can’t shut up!
I know “shhh”, “quiet” and, when very exasperated the Humans say “shut up!”. Yes, I do stop barking on command, but if it is something really, really exciting, I can’t help startin’ to bark again!
So now y’all know the truth about me! and you know what “latrant” and “latration” mean.
Y’all have a wonderful week!
There is nothing more beautiful than this time of year when the wisteria, dogwoods, azaleas and roses all bloom at the same time.
The last couple of weeks the Humans have been enjoying local strawberries too.
Hope y’all enjoyed the venture into my world.
Y’all come back now!
