Abbreviations are like short words. Sometimes they’re easier for dogs to remember than all the separate words.
For example, isn’t DFE easier to remember than Dog Friendly Establishment?
I found a whole book of abbreviations at the Dog Library. Here are some of my favorites.
AD (American Dog). That’s me. But I didn’t see FD (for French Dog). So that leaves out my friends the French Poodle and French Bulldog. Also my pal Frenchy, he’s a mutt.
DWA (Dogs With Attitude). A lot like me. I don’t always listen to my mother, especially when I’m writing. She says I have strong opinions. Of course I do. I don’t want my stories to be boring.
OC (Obedience Champion). Definitely not like me. I flunked all my obedience classes.
LOP (Leader of the Pack). My mother likes me to call her that. But I never do. I like LMA (that’s Leave Me Alone).
Here are some other short words I like.
TFD (Time for Dinner). That’s an easy one.
MT (More Treats). Important to know.
And my favorite, DWWS (Dog Who Writes Stories).
