Words, words, words

Don't humans love words. Be it big ones like "anthropomorphism," little ones like "a" and "to" or medium ones like...."medium." (By the way, why is "abreviation" such a big word?) They are forever talking, reading, wathching the TV or listening to the radio or music, which usually contain words. They even have lots of technology to make sure that they are never far from words. They spend very little time not using words. I think that is one reason that thay enjoy spending time with dogs, cats and other animals. Dogs can understand a few words and on the rare occasion even learn to speak a few but that's it (apart from blogging of course.) Words can be very useful and a lot of fun but they can also confuse and mislead. Become too caught up with words and you can lose sight of what is real, for words do not contain any truth in themselves but point in the direction of a truth. Whereas, you can not lie to a dog. We can not be fooled with fancy words or ideas.

Life is great when you are lost for words.

Words can also be very hurtful. Words have caused wars. If humans would use them with more caution, life would be better. I'm often lost for words, but that's not always a good thing. Sometimes words aren't required. A look can do. xx

Yuh, and we don't even always need to really listen to the words because its mostly important to know if the humans need smoochie kisses or action playtime or good doggies sit on their butts time.

You are some lap dog.

That's an adorable picture of you, Ruby. Sometimes a picture, or a look, or a growl, or a purr says more than words. And sometimes I get tired of words and just want silence (virtual or otherwise).
