If your dog could talk to you, what do you think he’d say?

At the end of this post, you’ll find out; not what he’d say, because of course dogs can’t talk – BUT THEY CAN TEXT.

But first, let’s start you off with a bowel adjustment. What did he just say? Well, that’s what Tameri Etherton thought too, the day she went for a massage and ended up trapped in a room with a sadist with sharp elbows.

Last time out we had a passionate discussion about historical accuracy in HF. This is a thoughtful post about making sure you get it right from The History Girls.

Thanks to the wonders of the Internet (more on that in a moment) bestselling books can be parodied within days of making number one, and viral videos often circulate faster than the book itself. This one’s the best of all of them. You’ll never look at your handyman/decorator the same way again …

The internet is a wonderful tool. But it has also given rise to a phenomenon that just didn’t exist a decade ago – cyber bullying. It can happen to authors, too. Here’s a cautionary tale from Pauline Fisk.

The boom in ePublishing is just one aspect of the digital revolution. The world is changing fast. Just how fast? This infographic on the evolution of the internet will astound you.

The internet is breaking down many barriers to communication between people everywhere. But animals already have a way of knowing and communicating that we still don’t quite understand; consider last week’s post about Christian the Lion.

It demonstrated how extraordinary the bond between humans and animals can be – now here’s a story of a dog that has been standing guard over his owner’s grave for six years. 

I don’t want to leave you feeling sad – so here are some texts from a dog to his owner. It is drop dead funny.

Be careful though…  the language is very blue – dogs love gutter talk – so don’t let your kids see it.

And apropos of nothing, here’s a two year old doing the jive. Just how good is this kid?

    Well you pulled out all the stops with this one, Colin. That post with the dog texting his owner was just what I needed this morning.

  3. These links are great! Thanks so much for adding me to such great company. I can’t get the Selena Gomez video to work, so I’ll go back to that one later, but those dog texts are a scream. I had to bookmark the page for those times when I need a giggle. Now I’m off to read all the other posts.

    • I’m glad you survived your massage. Tameri! I’ve only heard of those experiences before in Turkey where the masseurs are built like pro wrestlers. Try YouTube for Selena Gomez. It’s called Fifty Shades of Blue. Very funny!
