Georgian dog learns to talk!

I was blowing raspberries in the yard this morning.

Caucasian Shepherd

The tall person heard me and told me that at around 5 months, a child will start blowing spit bubbles  — or raspberries  — a skill that helps it learn how to move its mouth, tongue, and lips together, and later be able to form words.

He went on to say that it reminded him of something the American author Annie Dillard once said, “There is a certain age at which a child looks at you in all earnestness and delivers a long, pleased speech in all the true inflections of spoken English, but with not one recognizable syllable.”

Hmm. I had better start practicing my vowels.

  1. BASSA!!! How you doing my friend?! I blow raspberries a lot of the times when I’m sitting on the couch with mom. It’s fun, isn’t it? XOXO – Bacon

  2. You and Lad should get together.. he tries to mouth words using tones and various pitches… just hope the collies never learn to do raspberries for they will be giving bronx cheers if I know them… LOL

  3. Oh, sweet Bassa we are looking forward to hearing all you have to say when you get talking down pat. Hugs and nose kisses
