The Groovy Goldendoodles are blogging from A to Z this month. If you’re not sure just “what in the doodle” we’re doing, don’t fret, click here where you can dig up the dirt on our little alphabet pawty.

 Getting Schooled…Doodle Style 

Today Harley is focusing on the letter…

A

And that word is:

ATARAXIC

atəˈraksik

ADJECTIVE

Definition: a state of serene calmness.

Harley’s sentence: I stayed in an ATARAXIC mood all afternoon hanging out on a park bench last Spring with the Easter Bunny…

A

    This is such a great idea. I’ve never even heard of that word before. I just love the English language 🙂

    Thanks for schooling us!

    Holy bully sticks! You are starting out with big words! This will be mentally straining to keep up if all your posts are so complex 😉 Love the bunny pic!

      Slim Doggy, we know for sure you’re going to graduate from the “Getting Schooled- Doodle Style” vocabulary class with flying colors!!! PS: We learned a bunch about Alfalfa from you too!

    What kind of doodle uses a word like that ? Doodles are easy talkers. I think Leo, and Wilson, put Harley up to using an ostentatious word, to impress that bunny !

      Ssshh Sheila, it was “Wilson” he’s the brainiac in the family, but we try not to tell people. Hang out with us this month – he’s got some really cool words to share, plus photos…. Thanks for reading 🙂

    This is a new word to me! Boy I’m already on a roll… I learned the word Clowder for my blog post! I’m going to be so wise after reading all 26 of your posts!

      Clowder? We’ve got to grab our dictionary and look that one up! This is going to be one of the coolest blogging months ever!!! Take care my Beagle Buddy – Harley

    What a great word! I’ve never heard it before but I think it will be my word of the day today LOL.

      BOL – That’s too cool for doodle school. When you use it, come back and share it. Would love to see your sentence. Thanks for stopping by, we’re on our way to your place now!

    I love this idea, and love that new word! My only question is, if “ataraxy” is a noun, shouldn’t the word “mood” be dropped? As used above, it reads like an adjective.

    • Cathy Bennett
      April 2, 2014

      Hi Amanda – Maybe… I played around with the sentence and the tense a few times.

      Great looking out, nice to meet you too 🙂

    Haha! That a very big word and now I know what it means! Love the picture of Harley hangin with the Easter Bunny!

    • Cathy Bennett

      It was a comical scene, all the other dogs were frightened and skittish. When it was Harley’s turn to get his picture taken, he just hopped up there. the Easter Bunny felt so much better because he was beginning to get a complex since the other dogs weren’t interested in sitting with him.
