Basenji Lingo

I'm not sure if this has been addressed anywhere but I really need help understanding the lingo on this forum.
What does the following mean:
IMO
BCOA
BYB
DH
WI

Any other abbreviations you can think of please post.
Thanks!

Umm. I know a few:
IMO = In my opinion
BCOA = Basenji Club of America
BYB = Back Yard Breeder
DH = Dear Husband

The WI was just what it seems - Wisconsin (if that came from the young breeding thread)

Umm… I think a few of us, at least 2, need to use DP.

DP= Dear Partner 🙂

IMO - In my opinion (same as IMHO-without the "humble"..gggg)
SO - Significant Other

As I understand it, the 'D' as in DH can also be darn or damn, depending in the context and the posters state of mind:p (ie….after first posting "damn neighbor", any following references are merely stated as DN)

I think "gggg" is like a growl sound….like your "mad"..like a dog..but I might be wrong.

"gggg" is Big Grins, like VBG is Very Big Grin

aaahhh..I get it..:)

LOL Pat glad you explained cause I thought just a bunch of grins but funny some thought you were growling!

I use DH, but the first part isn't dear and the 2nd isn't husband. Hm… Richard Cerebellum covers it. Speaking of which, one day he came home from playing ball and said sadly... a DH here and a DH there today (he had left garbage can open so I wasn't happy when he walked in door after an hour of cleaning up trash and mopping). I looked confused... "Designated Hitter" he said sadly.

WTHAATI= "what the hell are all these initials?" I just made that up.:D
