My Dude



Back when I first was taken from dat "mean guys" yard and kept in a cell for like, forever! I was so scared being all alone.  I couldn't see my sister or my cousins but heard dem barking.  Den one day a pack of humans came and were staring at me. I wanted to bark, "Why are you guys starring at me? Don't you know dats rude?!"  Den dey tried to make me do tings I didn't want to do!  Den dis human dey called Tim, brought me outside and talked softly, while holding me in his arms.  I wanted to lick him and tank him, for his kindness but was too scared to do so.  When he left dat day, I tought "Oh no where's my dude going?! " Guess what?!  My dude didn't forget about me!  Turns out, he sent people from his pack to spring a bunch of us from dat scary holding place.  Well, a lot has happened since dat first day I met dat human with the kind eyes.  I now have a forever home, I'm learning dat its OK to explore scary tings and have met other nice humans too.  But, its "My Dude" who will always hold, dat special place, in my wittle bully heart.  ~Love Frodo~

Oh, Frodo, you're one darned cutie! I'm so glad you're ending is a happy one. May you have many years of being cradled like a baby in someone's lap, hugged, talked to softly, and anything else you want!

I love reading this blog and the wonderful things that have happened with all these great dogs. But, please, write the posts with correct grammar. Honestly, putting this message in Frodo's "voice" and making him talk like that, just reinforces the (incorrect) image that these dogs are "from the 'hood" and not capable of being fully domesticated or integrated into an educated family's home.

Frodo,
I loved you from the 1st time I saw you and read your story.You really are a special dog.I was hoping that I could have applied to have you in my home as well as in my heart but that was not to be because some people don`t just "get it" yet.
But I would like to have a dog just like you some day.

I`m glad you have a forever home now.
I hope Santa is good to you and I`m going to ask Santa to bring a few people a sense of humor for Christmas.

People AND dogs that may be a bit developmentally slower than others deserve to live and they shouldn`t have to "speak" like everyone else to be accepted.
The way you "speak" is adorable and quite fitting and says nothing about you as a dog.

BTW what`s wrong with being "from the hood" if you`ve got a good heart and soul and you respect others.

Isn`t someone reinforcing the (incorrect) image of being from the "hood"?

Ohh a tear jerker. Glad to hear you are doing well Frodo :) We need more people like 'Your dude' in this world!

Frodo- please keep "talking" the way you talk! I love how different blogs show their dogs' personalities through the different ways they make them talk. I always liked that Frodo talked a little different because from reading this blog it seems like he had a hard time coming out of his shell and his silly voice helped portray that! Without dogs' humans typing with the dog in mind it would be harder to get a sense of what the dog's personality is! We love you Frodo!

Just one more thing- if you look back in the blog, one can see that Frodo has come a long way with his grammar- like a symbol of how far he's come in his life with the help of good people :)

All the entries on this blog are in the dogs' voices which is part of what makes it such a great blog! If one reads from the very beginning you will see that Frodo's story is one of slow and steady growth. He was just a baby when he was saved from Vick's place and then he was isolated for months. His "grammar" is but a reminder of that horror, at least to me.

It's needless to say, but Frodo's guy will always, always hold a special place in his heart for his brave little guy. He couldn't have ended up with a better special gal - lucky boy.

grammer shammer.......as i was lol reading this post, my visuals kept popping to the Jethro-Elmer Fudd stereo-type. maybe it is an age thing but i didn't assume a "race issue" from the post. I'd say "being from the hood" is all the more reason to reach out and relate.
