Trained Them Well

February 10, 2009

That Gracie Lou is  a noisy dog. She barks at the doorbell (in reality and on television), she barks when someone walks by on the street, she barks at the trash truck, she barks at the wind, this morning she even barked at the neighbors huge trampoline that blew over last night.

The funny part is now, my girls are trained at getting her to stop. Whenever she starts barking, the Little One exclaims, “TV, Gecie… TV Gecie.”  She doesn’t have the “r” sound figured out so she usually just leaves it out. The Little One in her own little way is trying to tell the dog whatever the offending noise was is on TV. No it doesn’t matter if the TV is on or not.

Well this afternoon, there was a huge sonic boom and y’all know how much I love those. This was a good one, windows were rattling and all. Anyway Gracie Lou started barking and the Big One yelled, “It’s just the BOOM from the airplanes, Gracie!” She was completely put off by the fact that the dog was making so much noise over something silly like a sonic boom.

So do your three-year-olds know what a sonic boom is? Or is mine just bordering on genius status?
