Moderator's note: This thread comes as a result of jackson's question and my response in posts 18 and 19 here.

Could you please help me to correct the sentences below? Thank you.

1: I think that you should take him (dog) into/in the sun so he gets dried quickly and gets some warm.
Comment: I have been told not to put 'dog' in the parentheses but it is my feeling that some people might not like it to call their dog a dog because they perceive it something more than a dog and the word 'dog' has its own negative connotations.

2: Sorry, I have to hang up now . I hope that you won't mind but I have something urgent to attend to.

If you're coy about using 'dog', you could say 'I think you should take your schnauzer/shit sue*/rottweiler/pooch/Bengi/DaisyBell out into the warm sun to dry off.


* I may have spelt that wrong.:roll:

Once again, Jackson, please ask the unrelated question 2 in a separate thread.
