My Sister Lindy's Weird Dog Yoshi

Today is my sister's birthday and in honor of that I'm posting a picture of Yoshi, Lindy's 11 year old shih-tzu. Here he's staring at a pile of papers sitting on a buffet. He was barking at it until I walked into the room to see what all the noise was about. A bunch of papers. On a buffet.

Why does he bark at things? BECAUSE THEY'RE IN THE WRONG PLACE. It's like he's an interior decorator.

But? THIS ISN'T HIS APARTMENT. Or mine.

We were at a friend's in Santa Monica.

At my sister's apartment, if she places a vase or a chair in another location, Yoshi will bark at it. He must think my sister has no idea these things have moved AND HE MUST ALERT HER IMMEDIATELY.

Yoshi Def Con 5, things don't look right.
Yoshi Def Con 4, has Charlie Sheen been here?
Yoshi Def Con 3, where is the vase?
Yoshi Def Con 2, where is that chair?
Yoshi Def Con 1, the vase is in the hallway! The chair is loose in the bedroom!

BA(RKING)TTLE STATIONS!

As my mother once said when we were discussing how strange he was, "Well, he is Chinese."

Hope that clears it up for you.

  1. You didn't know the Chinese bark when things are out of place? And here I thought you were so well traveled and worldly.

  2. No Bobbi, I'm apparently out of the loop on Chinese barking.

  3. Clearly he appreciates a little feng shui in his life. That is too funny.

  4. Lindy obviously knows when the chi is out of whack ~ what a cute story. Thanks for sharing!

    Yoshi should be introduced to my dog. She has apparently appointed herself the parking police. If a car is parked across the spaces instead in in the space she has a complete meltdown. She also finds moving vans offensive.
