The contest will run a few more days, folks, so keep your friends coming! Demon Dog is excited at the prospect of chewing on five names out the hat! (And my book and magazine collection thank you for saving them from ruin....)
Demon Dog Progress Report
He's growing out of puppyhood although he still has the fluffy chicky-ducky hair. The funniest thing is, he has these two baldish spots on top of his head where horns are usually found. You know what, it kinda feels nubbly there. Do you think...? I wouldn't be surprised.
Besides the usual yips and yaps, he makes this peculiar sound when protesting anything that displeases him. Imagine a dog who has smoked too much cigar trying to growl-talk, but all that comes out is these short little throaty noises that resemble "nnnnggah! Nnnnngahhhhh! Nnnngggggeeh!" And he keeps making them till you think that's actually a real animal sound.
The horrifying thing is, I actually have managed to assimilate it into dogspeak. You know how you sometimes growl at your doggies if they misbehave? No? Just me? (whistling) Anyway, yesterday was a mother of a humid day and I was roofing on this old house where they used planks instead of plywood. It's very difficult to nail fast, even with a nailgun since there are these big cracks in between the boards and covered with tar paper, one can't actually see to avoid them. So, every so often, one hits those gaps, and has to put down the nailer, stand up and get the tar to fill the nail holes, and try to remember not to nail that height that particular line of shingles.
Rinse repeat rinse repeat. Like I said, it was a mother of a humid day. Perspiration was pouring into my eyes. There was hardly any breeze. The tenth or so time I did that in ten minutes got me really frustrated. Suddenly, these sounds started coming out of my mouth as I glared at the object of my frustration.
You guessed right.
"NNnnnnnnggggggah! Nnnnnnggggggeehhhhhhh! Nnnnnnggggaaaaah!"
Oh dear. I caught myself doing that and it was so ridiculous I started laughing. And couldn't stop for a good five minutes. God, Demon Dog Talk has infected me. My partner thought I had been touched by the sun because first, he heard these weird noises and then saw me lying on my back on the roof, cackling like an idiot.
So now you know what sounds to make when you're frustrated. Go practice :D!
