I want to join blogland in sending special thoughts to beautiful K today.
She is quite a special gal and an inspiration to us all.
And now, the Wonder Dog himself...
Ever wonder what the boar index is? Well wonder no more, because, I, Dexter, have once again set my superior intellect to work on determining the meaning of yet another peculiar human expression.
Here is what I have learned.
First of all, once again, the internet was no help at all as searches for boar index resulted in images of rather shocking looking creatures along with discussions of the stock market but no hits with the actual phrase put to use.
Dear readers, boar index is a formulation of the noun adjective which has become a mainstay of modern human speech (at least around my house). Ever heard the expression "that is da bomb?" Wherein "bomb" is both a noun and an adjective. Curious, isn't it?
Boar index refers to the delight of investigating the wonderful smells that enrich each and every one of my walkies. I believe it is an attempt on momma's part to convey that while her limited nasal passages cannot begin to imagine what it is like to be able to determine the passage of dogs, cats, squirrels, and other beasts, she at least appreciates the pleasure I take in said activity.
To whit, as in this photo which was accompanied by her exclamation of "This is boar index!"
When I am focused for extended periods of time, her joyful remarks become even more impassioned and often have added modifiers.
As here where she was almost shouting "THIS IS TOTALLY BOAR INDEX!"
Oops, actually this is a Lerting picture (see this post to learn more about that word).
I will confide in you that momma's moods are quite unpredictable and when I am engrossed in a particularly good smell, and most often when my back is turned thusly, she will give me a tug on my leash and announce "ENOUGH!"
How sad for the humans to live such limited lives that they would deny their best friends the opportunity to fully investigate the bounty of the earth.
Now, for those of you still unclear on the boar index, I give you this very brief video in which I have captured momma actually speaking (albeit in a somewhat flattened tone) the words "This is boar index."
