Twitter Shorthand Dictionary For Dogs

OMD! Read North's Personal Twitter Glossary

I love my dog. I love Twitter. My dog loves Twitter. Since he is no longer hooked up to Puppy Tweets, it's back to his usual tweeting style @norththedog. The problem is . . . he's getting rather wordy these days and 140 characters are not quite enough for all he has to say. Since we're forced to limit the length, I've come up with some alternatives to get the point across, human shorthand style.
I consulted GeekSugar for some of her most used phrases and then thought about my own. What is North trying to tell this dog for BOL? Find out and


  • BOL: Barking out loud
  • IMFO: In my furry opinion
  • LMTO: Laughing my tail off
  • LYLAD: Love ya like a dog
  • OMD: Oh my dog
  • OMDT: Over my dead toy
  • ROTFE: Rolling on the floor eating
  • WYWNH: Wish you were NOT here

The list could go on and on . . . but I'm stopping here. Can you come up with any more in the comments below?
