My dog was in the middle of eating her breakfast this morning, and my H was looking at the weather for this week. He says in a normal calm voice, “It’s going to be 99 fucking degrees for my race Saturday.” (He’s doing a 28 mile 7,000 vertical foot mountain race – in 99 degrees now :|).
My dog stops eating and lies under the kitchen table. Maybe she feels safe there? Or she will go down the hall to a secluded dog bed. She is super sensitive. She knows swear words and always has (probably due to my angry ex). We have even tried testing some swear words with a sing-songy happy voice. She knows the difference.
Poor girl! She didn’t finish breakfast today. We have to watch our mouths around her. Even an exasperated *sigh* from me will send her to the corner to sulk.
A photo for reference. <3 “Did you just drop the f-bomb, papa?”

Cute pup! Smart, too.
Goodness, she’d have a terrible time around our house if she’s allergic to f-bombs. But, cool, you own a dog with good values, lol. 🙂

Aww, poor girl.
Our dog recognizes some swears, but he mostly thinks it’s his name. Like if I stub my toe or something and go “Oh F***!” he runs in he room all excited.

Oh and you cannot say OW! If you stub your toe and even do the Shhhhhhheeeeee sound or say OW! she’ll put her tail between her legs, avert her eyes, and sulk into the other room or a corner.

It might have been the tone he used more than the word. Dogs are more sensitive to tone of voice than words! Adorable pup!

@crayfish: Yeah, usually the f word naturally has more emphasis naturally! But he just woke up, was groggy and said it very calmly with no emphasis.
