animal commands

and speaking of conversational grunts - or on matters onomatopoeic, I may try some of these animal commands in languages other than English when walking Flo. I like the sound of Fot! for Walk behind me!, although it's not so different from the sound of my native dog-walking dialect.

Dennis Lillee's nickname is Fot - Flippin' Old Tart. It was bestowed on him by Tony Lock.

Ah, now I understand what Snowy was saying in those old cloth-spined French language Tintin books we had.

All this time I just thought he was drunk. Come to think of it, he did get pissed a lot in the books.

T: Fot is Apt for Mutt.

N: ouah ouah (in a high voice)

I like the Hungarian for Dog (drinking) lefety, lefety...
