11 Signs You Speak ‘Woof’

11 Signs You Speak ‘Woof’

When I’m asked what languages I speak, I often want to answer “Woof.” After all, I spend a great deal of time communicating with my own dogs, helping improve the lives of dogs I don’t know, and understanding dog body language and behavior. So why isn’t “Woof” a language? Not only do I speak it to 4-leggeds, but I love connecting with 2-leggeds who speak “Woof,” both online and in person.

We are Dog lovers with a capital D. Those of us who speak “Woof”…

Do you speak “Woof”? If so, thanks for sharing how in a comment below.

The Language of The Universe

We have a language that is ours,

Which you and I we “own”.

As unique as it is simple,

To all creatures can be known.

‘Tis the Universal language of the globe.

No word is ever spoke’ and barely thought.

It only takes awareness of our mind

And never in the “schoolroom” can be taught.

We have a language, you and I ,

That through all Galaxies is used.

It flies through life Eternal,

Never can it be abused.

The feeling of this flow is so Divine.

In peace and joy forever; lets us walk.

This language of the world is for all time,

On all levels, enabling us to talk.

After many years with my beloved German Shepherd I am fluent in Woof, and after many years of loving cats I speak Miaow - and now I speak Robin as a lovely wild robin has been training me to produce food so he can take it from my hand - and then he stays to listen to some compliments on what a lovely and wonderful bird he is!
