Canine text is a thing at our house. Despite Olivia and I loving to be together all the time, sometimes we are not together. One of us may have a class and the other stays home. Sometimes I don’t feel like going outside, but Olivia does. For these occasions it is good we each have our own cellphone so we can text if needed.
Being the only dog outside can get boring. Olivia gets bored and starts making noise, so I might text her to see what is going on or to let her know Mom is mad about her being loud. Just as humans have their texting language, we dogs do as well. Texting is hard enough without thumbs so we like to keep things short.
I took a screenshot of our short conversation the other day. Can you figure out what we are texting about? In case you can’t translate our canine text abbreviations, I have the translation for you below.
Olivia, what are you doing in the yard?
Hi Madison, you should join me. I’m howling at everything.
Why are you doing that? Squirrel in tree?
No, I hear a delivery truck.
Watch out mom is coming!!! You are in trouble now!
I’ll pretend it’s not me and I’m munching on grass.
Wait, I’m howling out loud now too. The delivery truck is here!
Time for treats! I need to come inside now!
Do your dogs enjoy texting too? What are their favorite canine text abbreviations?
