7. Those dogs next door must be put in their places.
8. Flea?
9. Who farted? Oh, right, me.

    Goldie and I have very similar concerns.

    People say that dogs don’t think about much. They are wrong and Goldie has proven it.

      Goldie is a deep thinker. About several things.

    I often do a running commentary of Lucy’s thoughts, mostly to tickle the kids: Food. Food. Food. Food. You gonna eat that? Food. Food. Do I smell something? Food! Yes, food! I love food. I love you because you bring me food. Wait. Who’s at the door? Food? Yes, food! Food glorious food. Foodfoodfoodfoodfood. (Lucy is our we-think 2-year-old rescued chow chow.)

      Goldie likes to eat, but not as much as she likes me. If I’m not around, she won’t generally eat or drink (Grandma hand feeds her so she’ll eat). Poor heartbroken dog.

    Goldie is very complex, I think she and my Ella would get along. Although Ella’s primary thought is “I like rabbits!”

      When Goldie was younger and we lived in a high-rabbit area (the Conejo, or rabbit, Valley), she was ALL about the bunnies. She even raced through several cactus patches, chasing bunnies, with predictably painful consequences.

    the picture suggests that finding warm spots should be on that list somewhere.

    I’m pretty sure that if Goldie has 20 separate, identifiable thoughts, she’s miles smarter than any dog I’ve yet had.

    I love #9, I’m thinking that is my pup’s most frequent thought 🙂

    Loved it! I have 2 and can imagine any of them with exactly the same thoughts!!!

    Pretty much Grover’s thoughts. Except for the cat poop. Unfortunately, I have just discovered yesterday that rabbit turds are an apparent delicacy to him. Urg!

    Once upon a time, I had an ancient Chihuahua named Iris. We used to tease and say that Iris’s main thought in life about darn near everything was ala Jeopardy, in question style, “Can I eat it?”

      In Goldie’s case, that answer is usually “yes.” Including, and especially, cat poop.
