Talking to one’s dog!

Learning from Dogs

Are you a dog owner? Then here’s something else that you gain from your wonderful friend.

I was rather short on time yesterday so apologies for cutting my introduction to a minimum. But you will still love this item that appeared on the Care2 site three days ago.


People Who Talk to Their Pets Are Actually Quite Intelligent

If you’ve ever owned a pet, you’ve probably talked to it at one point or another. And even though you may have been fully aware that your pet couldn’t talk back or even really comprehend what you were saying, you still did it anyway.

Why do we do this? Why do we talk to our pets like human friends when we know their little minds just aren’t built to think or feel the same way we do?

    Since I talk to both my cat and my dog (and the cat ‘chats’ back to me) each day, I must agree with this article. I know neither of them probably understand more than a few words (go pee, no) but the tone of the voice is important and when I’m alone I like to chatter.

  7. ALL of my Shih Tzus through the years have had huge vocabularies since I chatter incessantly (no surprise, huh?) – and almost always speak to dogs in complete sentences. Tink may be the smartest of the bunch. I am always amazed at what he understands – and how quickly he picks things up – but it could be because he is my first “only dog.”

    btw – I’ll be away from Sunday nite until Thursday, and only partially available online between now and then to have time to do what I must before I leave. Tink is coming with me, but I’m not sure he understands what that means since this is my first trip of any sort since he arrived. I’m sure he’ll love where we are going – a cabin in the woods!

    Fingers crossed that all goes well with the hospital reports, Sue.
