Theo Dog Spells His Name in Kibble For Theo, nothing says I love you quite like food. Being a fairly independent chap, we’ve resorted to underhand tactics to aid his training (or that’s how he sees it).

This game is much better when someone “interprets” Theo and gives a voice to his internal dialogue. We’ve often discussed what he would sound like if he could talk. The current consensus is something like Ray Winstone, or  a deep London loveable gangster type voice. You know, something like:

“ello sunshine, got any kibble?”

I’ll leave you with a very funny video which shows just how dogs think…
