Do you ever wonder what goes on in your pet's mind?

I certainly do it allllll the time. I end up talking to them and when they look at me I feel like they understand every word I've said. Has that ever happened to you? Anyway, I've decided to share some of these talks with you in between listing all my arts and crafts. See, our dog River has been trying to figure out what on earth the pecking order is here in this house he came to live in. At first he thought, hmmmm I'm the most important one of them all, I'm a dog and I just ought to be, right!? Wrong little puppy dog, that's what Azzie (our Australian cat) tried to get through his little brain. I must say she's gotten pretty good at it, it's only taken her a year (wait a minute, in her mind that's a long time ... 7 cat yrs I guess!) to get the dog to finally not run her over every darn time she gets up to get from point A to point B. Mum (that's me) has been trying to teach him NOT to do such a thing but he still does. Although lately she's figured out that just hissing, puffing herself up to the size of a watermelon and acting like a wild thing just doesn't do anything, contrary he thinks it's play time. She's finally settled for just one mean kind of short snarl, hiss, weird kind of noise I must say to get him to back off. I'm trying to figure out what that actually means in animal world but I haven't figured it out. I've seen her getting big and fluffy hissing and talking back to him but he just ignored it compared to just this one funny sounding noise she makes gets his attention. See, he wants to protect Mum from that mean big cat that just follows her around like ... a dog (wait a minute, nope I'm the dog following her like a dog so not sure why the cat tries to act like a dog!?) so he lays right smack in the door way when Azzie wants to come and visit me trying to get past him. Well she makes her entrance by giving him a really mean staredown and just that one funny sounding noise and I'll be darn ... she's got his full attention, he will slowly rise to a sit and tries to really win the stare down contest but .... nope Azzie wins!!!! He then slowly moves out of her way and lets the queen go by! She then hurries into the room jumps onto the table to greet me sitting by the computer typing this blog entrance. She purrrrrrrrrrrres and tells me all about how she got the dog well trained ... My good Ozzie Azzie ...
