You need to let it out in a safe way then let “Teddy” do the listening. Teddy will appear to be listening but really doesn’t understand the word past “sit”. Therefore you can safely use all the 4 letter words you can’t on those who stand on two feet as long as they are said in the proper tone. Dogs are still not politically correct so they can take any of your jokes that might “hurt” your fellow homo sapiens. They even might wag their tail at a remark that other earthlings would just growl out. Trust me those with tails won’t start debating you about your words or give you the silent treatment. They probably won’t even walk especially with a pet in between your lips moving. Yes, others might think you should be speaking to a “professional” instead but trust me these creatures work for a whole lot less and in the end, you actually end up with someone who truly cares even if they have no idea what you’re saying.
