In Skye Words: The Talking Pom | Featuring a home video of Skye


I bet you didn’t think that dogs had the power to talk. Well, they can.   And I’ll prove it.


I was chillen on my couch surfing the internet for the perfect grilled salmon recipe when Skye jumped on the couch next to me.

She laid there for a second and stared at me with her dark beady bead eyes. I glanced over at her and gave her warm smile when she softly responded with a whine.

Hey, Skye!

I reached over and scratched behind her ear for a few seconds. Skye enjoyed the pampering but rejected the offer and tilted her head to the side to signal that she wanted a head rub instead. Her eyelids slowly closed shut as I gave her the best head massage, ever. After a while, I became tired and decided to return back to recipe hunting on the internet.

Arf! Arf!… Arf! Arf!

What, Skye? What is it?

Arf! Arf!…. Grrrr!… Arf!…Grrrr!

I peeked over and asked her again, What is it, girl?

Skye shifted her head to the right, looked me in my face for a second before staring down at my hands that rested on my keyboard.

My hand?…You want my hand?

Arf! Arf!

Aww, you want me to pet you?

This time I caressed her tummy! Tummy rubs were one of her favorite. Skye was the happiest dog in the world for those 10 seconds until I stopped.

Arf! Arf! Arf!

Skye! I can’t keep petting you. I have stuff to do. I can’t sit here all day giving you a full body massage, girl.

Arf! Arf!

I had enough of Skye bossing me around, so I ignored her. And the longer I ignored her, the longer and louder she barked. It was annoying.

WHAT, Skye?

NO! I’m not rubbing you anymore?


Arf! Arf! Arf!

Tell me something else and I’ll do it. I promise. But I’m not about to sit her and keep rubbing you. I won’t do it.

Arf! Arf! Arf!

What? Do you have to use the bathroom?

Skye jumped down from the couch and twirled around in a circle.

You have to use the bathroom?

Skye tail wagged back and forth.

So what did Skye want now?

She wanted to use the bathroom.

Let’s go, girl!

Skye ran to the door and twirled around in a circle even faster huffing with her tongue hanging out. She was ready for an afternoon walk.

As soon as we got outdoors, she did her daily routine, which was

  1. Sniffed every other dog’s pee
  2. Discovered the perfect potty break spot
  3. Yapped at every passing dog
  4. Marked her territory

It wasn’t long before her little body became limp and we were heading back inside to rest. Skye flopped down on the big comfy couch preparing for a long afternoon nap.

And as for me, I was finally able to continue my search for a salmon recipe.

The End.


See, I wasn’t lying. Dogs can talk. You just have to listen and pay attention.


Sweet doggie dreams, Skye!





  1. As leaders, we complicate our lives by failing to communicate what we want. However, Skye teaches us that communication is key to getting what you want in life. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
