Mr. I Speak Geese

Marcus: You'll never guess who I saw on our walk the other day?

Rusty:  The geese Minnie and Mo.

Marcus:  Yes.  How did you know?

Rusty:  When you got home, Buddy and Merci told us you had been carrying on a conversation with yourself again.

Marcus:  They're just jealous because they don't speak geese.  Er, goose.  Bird, they don't speak bird.

Rusty:  So what did the geese have to say this time?

Marcus:  Mo started honking as soon as he saw us coming.  He said he was so glad to see me again.  It's been a while and he missed my face.  Or maybe he said he missed my ears.  I had a hard time translating that part, but he did miss something about me.

Rusty:  Wait.  Did you say he missed your ears?  Seriously?

Marcus:  I'm not sure.  We don't speak the same dialect.

Rusty:  Are you sure he didn't suggest you clean your ears?

Marcus:  Why would he do that?

Rusty:  I heard a rumor that dogs with dirty ears hear things that aren't ... uh, real.

Marcus:  They do?  Maybe that's Merci's problem.  She keeps complaining I scream in her ear when we set out on a walk, and you all know I'm the calmest dog you know.  I never scream.  I think I'll go suggest Jan clean Merci's ears.

Cyndi:  Where's Marcus off to now?

Rusty:  I think he's going to suggest Jan clean Merci's ears so Merci doesn't hear him screaming when he's excited.

Cyndi:  That doesn't make any sense.

Rusty:  I know that and you know that, but Mr. I Speak Geese hasn't a clue.

  6. Marcus I bet those gooses loved you. stella rose

  7. You speak geese? Does that mean you're a honky?

  8. MOL ! Translating is often such a hard work ! Purrs

  9. Marcus, you can come chat with the birds around here anytime you wish, sweetheart!

  10. Poor Marcus. I believe that you talk to the geese and they talk to you. You might be the Dr. Doolittle of dogs!

  11. Marcus, we have no doubt you talk to the geese...and the geese talk to you but we think there might be something lost in translation, MOL

    Somehow we're not certain you don't talk a little loud around Merci. Maybe Jan better not clean her ears.

  12. That is so nice that you have found a way to converse with the geese.

  13. Marcus, there are some four-foots in the world who simply do NOT understand those who speak geese...er...goose...and it is only out of jealousy and envy that those same four-foot-friends try to shoot down (er...put down) your gooseapeak. And I'm sure you're ears are as clean as the plate in your dining car. Loulou

  14. Maybe there's something lost in translation, Marcus! :)

  15. We love that you know goosetalk, Marcus.
    The only word we can make out ourselves is 'honk' and it seems to be a rather multipurposed lingo.


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
