    Blah's dog = the dog which belongs to Blah
    Blahs' dog = the dog which belongs to Blahs

    When an object's name ends in 's', you do not need to put another 's' after the apostrophe: an apostrophe on its own will do.

    Another example in the difference of usage would be:

    The trees' leaves = the leaves which belong to ALL the trees in the forest.
    The tree's leaves = the leaves which belong to ONE tree in the forest.


    Make sense?

    Mo' money is niggerspeak for "more money" which in turn is niggerspeak for "I ain't got no money for rocks" which in turn means "I cannot afford crack" in plain English.
