Bella and DiDi: Butt in! But out!


Alright, we know, us dogs butt in a lot. It is how we say hello and make sure we know who has joined our pack.

However, a butt in is not the same as a but in. For starters, the smell is different. A but in smells like nothing where a butt in has a particular scent that teaches us so much such as what you ate for breakfast, how you are feeling and what type of species you are.

But ins rarely serve anyone well unless an emergency is involved. When have you ever felt happy in the midst of a but in?

The but in hurts feelings, creates anger and is fueled by speculation. The butt in is a useful tool.

Next time you think of pulling a but in, be sophisticated like us canines and go for the butt in.

  1. Ladies, this post has made my day! Thank you for explaining the difference between “but in” and “butt in.” I think many of us tend to confuse the two of them. I for one am grateful for the clarification and continue to marvel at the wisdom the both of you possess! Have a nice weekend! 🙂
