Any questions. You good? Ok. Yeah. How is Fufi? How is? Oh, how is Fufi? Wow that’s a deep cut, man.
You can’t just ask me that like just randomly. You’ve
got to be like, “Hey Trevor. So I read in your book
and.” You can’t just be like how’s Fufi because in my mind,
Who the hell, Fufi… No because Fufi died. So for those that don’t know. So
I had a dog when I was growing up
like one of the dogs we had. My mom was working
at a pharmaceutical company and her colleague came to work one day and was like, “Hey
my neighbor’s dog impregnated my dog so now I have
all these puppies I don’t want.” And they were like this weird
mix of like a Bull Terrier and a Maltese Poodle. “So do you want to take them?”
And my mom was like, “Alright I’ll take two.” And
then my mom brought them home, and I’ve never had a dog before. This is the most
amazing thing in the world. So we raised them.
It was two beautiful dogs. They look completely different but they were sisters. They were
the best, Fufi and Panther. And my mom called the one
Panther because she had a pink nose,
so the Pink Panther. And then Fufi was like the
dumbest most beautiful dog ever. And Panther was the smartest
ugliest dog you’ve ever seen. And so like I loved
Fufi the most cause she just like looked
really vicious. And I used to think
that Fufi was really stupid. And then one day what happened
was like at our house somebody was trying
to come into the house like a family friend. And they’re trying
to open the gate and then they move the gate
and then the gate fell. And then Panther ran away. Because she liked
to sleep by the gate. And then Panther ran
but Fufi didn’t. And then the gate hit her and then like it broke her
spine. It was devastating. So then we went to the vet and then the vet was
like “I can’t help her, “we’ve got to put her down,
put her out of her misery.”, and the vet was like
“But this was amazing, “how did you guys
raise a deaf dog?”, and we were like “What?” (audience laughs) We were like “What do
you mean a deaf dog?”, and he was like “Oh,
like afterwards, “when I was just going
through examining her “while she’s still living, I
realized that she wasn’t born “with”, I guess, “a certain
part of the cochlea.”, or something else. We were like “Wait, this dog
was deaf the whole time?” (audience laughs) And we just genuinely,
I literally just be like “Fufi, sit!” (laughing) “Listen to me, sit Fufi.”, and
I was like, “You’re so dumb.” “You’re so dumb.”, and I never knew that the dog, and then we realized
what used to happen was when we’d call the
dogs, we’d be like “Fufi, Panther!”, and
Fufi would never come, but Panther would come
running sometimes, then she’d look at you, and then she’d run back, and
then they would both come, and I always used to be
like “Fufi’s just dumb.” – And then I realized Panther
was like “Ah, she didn’t hear” and then she’d go
back and fetch her, and then she would then,
both of them would come, and then now went back
to my office and was like “Fufi.” “Fufi!” “I miss you, Fufi.” (audience laughing) So that’s how Fufi’s
doing, she’s… (audience laughing and clapping) Yeah.
