100 Dogs! Hundert Hunde! Cien Perros! Cien Chiens!
Since starting with Duolingo 66 days ago I've been having a wee side amusement of collecting dog profile pics in my 'followed' list. I don't see any other particular purpose to the following stuff seeing as how we can't contact each other. But I enjoy having this gallery of (mostly) cheery dog faces in my profile. And of course within that list there's the Top Dog competition to see who has the most XP every week/month. (Spoiler alert, it's always Bruce B, with the rest of us panting some way behind ;-)
I just noticed that I have 100 of them today. Oh, no, that's not actually true. There is one Person in amongst them all. He was the first one to give me a helpful answer on the forum when I was stumbling about asking daft questions about how it all worked. (Nah, there are actually no daft questions other than the ones you're too feart to ask.) So I decided to let him stay on the list as a sort of honorary Top Dog. If anyone is really bored they can see if they can find him. First one to post his name here gets 100 lingos! (Yeah, well, what else can I do with them?)
Hang on, that brings me to my next daft question. How can you quickly give someone multiple lingots? I sometimes give more than one but have to click on them one at a time. Is there a way of doing this more efficiently?
Does anyone else 'collect' anything in their followed list? Cats? Horses? Annoying pics of couples? (Oh, only me who finds them annoying? Ah, that'll just be my Miserable Scots Gittishness coming out then, sorry.)
Right, I'm off out with the (best) dog now. Woof.
hahaha, this is great! It's pretty easy to spot David in amongst the "cães" but what is really interesting is he has very few dogs among his 88 friends (makes you almost as special to him).
Nice take on a new angle. But cats do indeed rule. :)
However, it is the owls on this site. :D
We should unite; against the ducks!
Duo hates ducks:
You especially have to be careful because "Dutch" obviously means, "Duck" in English so you are living in Duck Country now!
But, apparently they go to Korea on Holiday:
Oh dear - I just checked my profile and there now seems to be only 98 in my followed list. I would swear there were 100 this morning. Have 2 dogs died? Left Duolingo land for ever? I sometimes delete people who have changed their profile pics to something non-canine but haven't done so today. It's a mystery.
I think that the cramps is going to be the least of your worries.

(Let's the horses out of their stalls)
My friend! It's time. The dog who has led the torture howl is within our reach. It's time to charge!
(Horses start charging after CloggyMcClogFace)
Mom913728 is next!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Haha! :O) Hi cute Cloggy-Doggy! :O) What a purrrticular collection! me likey-purrr
I always have to be careful not to scratch your sensitive canine noses when we're horsing around, but you're safer off, since I've taken up a new hobby playing the guitar! ♫ ♪ ;O)
Click here for
how to give away multiple lingots. Or this is another link that seems to confirm it.Link
go on, get yourself a photo of a guitar - I'm sure you can find a nice one online and cut and paste it in here. I think I've seen a couple of tigers and have been tempted to follow them too but it would cause chaos in the dog club I fear. And thanks for being the first one to answer my question, at least I now know I'm not the only one with a 'collection'.
(Out of cat character) I was just making sure that everyone knew that for I just checked one of my emails and there was an email from a moderator(from 2 months ago) saying that one of my comments had been removed for saying something like this.
(Back to being a cat)Well cats are way cuter and funner and better than mange flea pelts that humans call Dogs!
Where? I need to catch it.
(Starts Running in decagons)
Where is it?!
I will find it.
(Duolingo Bird flies in)
Duo:I believe CloggyMcClogFace was referring to me.
Me:Sorry Mr.Duo. I only heard "...wee birdie..."
Duo:That is fine. You will not go to heaven. (whispers) yet.
"...shame he's not a Dalmatian really. Don't think I have one of them yet."
(I overhear this run into the nearest tree and hop my way across town to a garbage hill)
(whispers)Cats, we need to bury the dalmatian now!
(cat whispers back)Why?Cloggy(MyFaceisstuckinthetrashcan)McClogface is on to us.
Hi, friend! I noticed what you were up to a few weeks ago. I feel pretty rad for being a part of your dog-tastic collection. It’s really cool to know about this “top dog” competition, oooo! I try to be the top-dog in my own weekly leaderboard—glad there are others that think similarly XD Also, I feel that maybe you’re getting some copy-dogs, lol. Two dog profiles added me and lots of other dogs last night, haha. You trend-setter!
Hey, that is why you are following me!! Like my little bed buddy photo? He is the BEST!!! I am always wondering why people follow me of all people. But, I know why you follow me and I am proud of it! :) Go Dogs Go!!! I have cats too - but they're not worth putting a picture of on here!!! :D I think I might just start a dog team for the fun of it - we'll see!!!
I'm being put in a cat kennel. My humans are taking a break from me....I'm pretending to act devastated....but I can't wait to go! Think of all the CATS there!
We can sing and howl all night with no one to shut us all up.
Let you know how it all goes....rubs head against loyal cat cultist Jack.... Be back when/if they let me out.
Got a present for ya Jack! ..drags thing along floor... It's an OWL'S LEG brother!
I'd only do it for you....Till we meet again my friend....
Hahaha, I almost followed you Johan but that's a (fake?) goat you've got there, not a big white dog. Die Hunde bellen is a notorious 'falsche freund' for Dutch speakers as bellen means to phone in Dutch.
(Trying desperately here to throw in the odd language related remark into the dog chat to keep the downvoters at bay.)
Humf. Never thought of it that way... ok, I am now rolling on the floor with laughter!! This is too hilarious some of the things those ridiculous cats are saying!!! Maybe I should try a paw at a different animal. Just seems like CloggyMcClogFace has the dogs under control! I just like the idea of competition. Forget the rabbits. They ran away as soon as they smelled me coming. :)
I'm finding the whispered Dalmation Plot a wee bit worrying. I suspect that one of those cats is actually Cruella De Ville. (I really really want a Dalmation Profile Pic for my collection now...) I saw 3 of them walking along a canal the other day when I was driving past and slowed down to admire them. There was immediately a Great Danish explosion of barking in the car behind me. (Tssk.)
(Great Danish looks into a house and sees me watching the Dalmatians)
(Starts barking) (You continue on) (I creep out of house run across the street and follow the Dalmatian) That night....
Me:Hey Duolingo! These dogs owners forgot to do their Duolingo lesson. I think you should get the dogs. That will persuade them.
Duo:Okay. Just name the price...
(I cannot say anymore or Duo will get me).
But let's just say you wont be seeing those dogs anytime soon.
(Innocently)Cruella De Ville? Who's that? (Inner soul)That slobber head is right.
Our fur balls are to scare away unwanted guests. And to get our humans to wake up and feed us. The only reason you are dependent on your owners is because you are dumb mutts! In regard of Ripping the Furniture. We do that for practice, practice for shredding dogs. Also we do that to keep our claws sharp. If we had opposable thumbs then we could use a knife to sharpen our claws. But since we don't we are dependent on the furniture.
Maybe some other dog friends want to help me get JackDunne5 straight on how dogs are better than cats. Bother the hired assassins. I still have teeth.
Dear Mister JackDunne
I certainly have had fun
Fighting about dogs and cats
and all sorts of things like thats.
But it is time to end
all of this fun, but I do extend
to you an invitation
to stop all of this provocation!!
Sorry, my poetry is not the best - but I tried!!
Perdon? How could the cats have "won"? That must be according to their own opinions.
For you have stopped fighting back and have went back to your owners with your tail between your legs. I call that VICTORY!
You dogs have been inactive on this post for 2 days.
whine) Why can't those cats leave us alone? (whine) AND WHERE ARE THE OTHER DOGS (howling)
Okay Clever Clogs Cats- tell me how to easily see if there are new posts on a thread I'm following. I'm still finding this forum a bit user unfriendly in that I have to scroll through the whole thread to see if I can spot any new doggerel on it. On another forum I'm on I open up 'My Discussions' and the ones with new posts are right there at the top of the list. I don't see a way to do that here.
Is it possible? (And if not, why not?)
Here - a mackerel head reward for the first Clever Clogs Cat to give me a useful answer. (I'm lying. The Great Danish one just had a whole mackerel mashed through his dinner and didn't leave the head for any passing cat to swipe.)
Oh no, I turned that off right at the start, along with the annoying noises. Can't be doing with mail notifications every time someone farts in here. I just want to instantly see if there are new posts in the threads I've contributed to without having to wade through mountains of the stuff.
Jack my lad, I'm not receiving emails and my comments are disappearing.
Maybe a new thread at some time amigo?
Together we can achieve world domination!
Have been to a stylist to help me achieve Glory. You can pretend to be cute - until it hits them that you are an assassin. Good cover, amigo! Speak to you soon.
El purrrr....el purrrr....
Oh - OK. I see. No sense.
(bored tour cat in a museum)
bored cat-And that is another example of dog's dumbness.
(that very smart cat)
Smart cat(I mean we all are but this one is smarter than your average cat)-Was that some sort of code? Or is that just pure stupidity?
Bored cat-It was just pure stupidity.
