    Hmm…. Let's do a few in human grammar and a few in fun ‘dog talk.’
    “My owner had my testicles removed without my consent. This was an extremely traumatic experience. Will dogs ever have the right to make decisions about their own bodies?”
    “Am I wrong to be suspicious of the man that delivers mail to our house every day? My owner wants me to be polite but my intuition is screaming that there's something suspicious about this guy…”

    “Could my master be a wizard? I know this sounds crazy but he can literally make a ball disappear into thin air. I'll watch him throw it, and usually it lands so I can chase after it. Occasionally though, he will throw the ball and…I'm telling you…THE THING NEVER LANDS. He just stands there and laughs and the ball magically appears back in his hand!
    And in dog voice…

    “WHY GET MAD YOU WALK INTO ME? I JUST LAYING IN MIDDLE FLOOR.”
    “WHY MAKE ME STOP SMELL OTHER DOG BUTT?”
    “WHY STARE TINY RECTANGLE ALL DAY?”
    “WHAT DOIN'?”
    “WHY NOT RUN WHEN HEAR FIREWORKS?”
    “WHAT MAKING ME ITCH SO BAD AND WHY NOT LIKE ME SCRATCH? YOU NO SCRATCH YOUR ITCH?”
    “WHY HUMAN NOT LIKE DEAD ANIMAL SMELL? SMELL GREAT TO ME.”

    “WHAT THAT SOUND WAS?” (After farting)

    "As a Boxer, I think I may suffer from an identity crisis. I feel like I have a Chihuahua trapped inside my body just waiting to come out. What should I do?"
    I have always been on the "dainty" side of 80 lbs. I'm a very big boy who watches my other Boxer friends rolling in the mud, have drooling contests and laughing whenever they can produce the biggest, smelliest farts. When participating in these activities I feel I am merely the pantomime in an otherwise gesture life.
    On the other paw, my lady's best friend has a wonderful little Chihuahua called "Tiny" who is the coolest little dude I know. He is always clean. He doesn't like wallowing in the mud. He never drools. His manners are impeccable. When he passes wind you can barely hear it. It's a gentle, "Whoooooo" followed by the loveliest fragrance. It smells like chicken! He even wears the cutest clothes. Just like our people! He eats one single kibble at a time. I really try so hard to do the same but cannot contain myself. I get to number three then scarf down the rest. Sometimes it gives me "Boxer Belly." Sometimes I barf it right back out.
    Once, Lady stepped in it and yelled really loudly.
    It hurt my feelings.


    ​​​​I really want to be like him. I want to be like "Tiny". I try my best to make myself small and act like him. I crawl into Lady's lap for a snuggle but she pushes me off and pretends I am squishing her and I'm too heavy. This hurts my feelings.
    I'm just a little bitty doggie living inside a big doggie body, afterall. I can't escape my body and I can't escape my mind. Any trolls who wish to pick on me: I have a bone to pick with you. I don't need your negative comments. Any other comments more than welcome. Afterall....it's a dog eat dog world out here.
    I'm just trying to get by.
