A is for Agility – great fun & a good excuse for a rapid demolition exercise.
B is for Barking. Humans don’t like quiet, so Bark often, especially at night so you can be sure that they can hear you.
C is for Cat. Great to Chase, not so good to Catch
D is for Dig. Very helpful to your human, and good exercise.
E is for Excavate. Like D, but bigger.
F is for Food. The most important thing in a Bu’s life.
G is for Guest. Make them welcome. Never leave them alone, except to go outside to collect more mud about your person.
H is for Holes. There can never be enough of them – see D & E.
I is for Investigate & Inquisitive. Be nosy, stick your nose into anything & everything.
J is for Joyful. What you feel when your Human comes home. Good excuse for running around like a maniac.
K is for Kennel Club. Posh place in London - dogs not allowed.
L is for Lead. Used by Humans when you go for a walk & they want to be pulled along.
M is for Mealtimes. Very important. Be there.
N is for Norwegian Buhund – that’s you. N is also for Naughty – but that’s just coincidence.
O is for Obedience. Take your human along to some classes – they just might learn something.
P is for Plants. Often found in other people’s gardens. Never found in Buhund gardens.
Q is for quiet. Buhunds don’t do Quiet, except when they are doing something Naughty.
R is for Rabbit. Similar to Buhunds. Both run away & dig holes.
S is for Sit, Stay, Stand. Humans use these words a lot. They are interchangeable. Just pick one of them & humans are happy.
T is for Training. Training is a very important part of a Buhund’s life. A well trained Human is a joy to own.
U is for Unbearable. Being away from your humans is Unbearable. When they leave you, cry a lot. Very loudly. For as long as possible.
V is for Vet. Useful people. Make friends with yours – smile at him when you meet.
W is for Water & Wet. Buhunds don’t do either. Make sure your human is always Wetter than you (it’s a dominance thing, they like it.)
X is for “Xxxxx” What your human says when you’ve been particularly helpful, like clearing up a messy box of chocolates.
Y is for Yip, which is a small bark. Buhunds are good at yipping. Practise a lot.
Z is for Zzzzzzzz…….. Good night.
