Macedonian Dogs


An embarrassing admission:

When I met my first trained Macedonian dog, responding to commands of "Sedni!" or "Zdravo!" or "Chekaj!", a part of me thought, "My God. This must be the smartest dog in the world, to understand these Macedonian commands!"

When I actually put thought into it, I realized that the dog probably wasn't bilingual in English and Macedonian, as I had originally thought.

This is the subconscious rot of English linguistic imperialism.
