Returning one morning from a long walk along Ritchie Avenue, Marash Boy and Marash Girl were greeted by the neighbor's dog with short gruff barks: "Vokh, Vokh!" to which Marash Boy responded, "Vokh, Vokh, Vokhtoutioun." (Ող, Ող, Ողջություն): Good health! Good health! Good to be alive! Marash Girl had been unaware that dogs could speak Armenian, or, put in another way, that Marash Boy could understand dogs!
Ողջություն- voghtoutioun- good health / good to be alive
