Can't Spell "Dog"

I was surprised to see a Craigslist ad for a free "dogg." Aren't the first two words someone learns to spell "dog" and "cat?"

fixed doggs w/shots and fixed to good home

brown lab and pit/ridgeback mix. Love my doggs but I have to move. Lab is a lover and pit/ridgeback is guard dogg.

I don't want to stereotype, but I am guessing this might be a younger person who perhaps learned to spell in the same manner as Snoop Dogg

This is the reason I avoid the pet section of craiglist--too depressing when you've worked in rescue for a while. Stupid people who "love their dogs but are moving/having a kid/going to prison" suck at more than their spelling ability.

Our local paper has run an ad for a Yorkshire Terror for a few weeks. Now a new ad is running for a Peacup Poodle.

The "Yorkshire Terror" might not be a misprint. I have a Silky (part Yorkie) and TERROR could be their middle name.

I love Ggrannie.

I wonder if Dawg will now become known as Dawgg.

But according to Al's post, they mis-spelled it consistently, 3 times. If it was only once, I'd agree with you...

Some people just don't care about spelling.

Often, the same people just don't care about vocabulary development, either. I had a blue and gold macaw with a vocabulary of over 1,000 words, that it used in meaningful ways and sometimes in short sentences that it learned by rote. That was pretty cool, especially when I read that the vocabulary of many Americans (people) is not much bigger than that.

The Urban Dictionary distinguishes between the two. Look for them in the updated Scrabble edition of your local Oxford English Dictionary (unabridged).

Hey, a small vocabulary can be a good way to get through the workday, especially if you're tired!

When our kid was about three years old I realized that there's not much difference between the number of words I used for submarine watchstanding and parenting. Sometimes they were even the same words...
