    I can't be the only one who talks to his dog with baby talk. It feels silly but I love him so much, and he IS our baby.

    Other people's pets too. I babytalked my sister's old dog when I met him and she said it was "inappropriate" given his age. Me and her are very different.

    You can horse around with a big dog; they'll play with you. But you can't horse around with a horse; they spook.

    I talk gently with dogs only until we get to know each other, by then they get my dry humor. But I only talk gently to horses. They don't get sarcasm at all.

    Does the horse make that snorting sound after you say something to it? icon_smile.gif

    I'm pretty sure I use baby talk with every single dog I meet, not just my own

    I wouldn't call it baby talk, but it was definitely weird. So what. He liked it and he knew it was about him.

    LOL! I must be a freak, because I never talked to my dog in baby speak. I always talked to him like I talked to my friends. I might've used higher intonation, but that's about it.

    Oddly enough, I talk to ALL animals in Spanish. For some reason Spanish just seems like the ideal language to use with animals.

    "Hola, kashorro! Qué te pasa? Ven aquí!"

    No, that only happens to me online.

    In fact, the horses tend to be quite polite. My niece taught hers to say please and thank you for its carrots, two distinctly different nods of the head. And that horse is huge and my niece is tiny. It's very cute.

    We talk to Walter - our Chow/Shiba mix as though he was a six year old child. He understands a lot of English! We even have to spell out the word w-a-l-k or he gets excited.

    Sometimes when I talk to my dog in baby talk, he looks at me like if I'm a freaking idiot. But when I speak in plain English, he obeys my commands. Go figure. icon_redface.gif

    Too CUTE! Love a well behaved pup! They get baby talkin sometimes, but mostly are my philosophical sounding board... but they have to be my own pet... other people's pets don't sit still long enough to hear my entire ramblings. icon_neutral.gificon_neutral.gificon_neutral.gif

    With every dog I have ever had or met. No matter how old or big they are, they inevitably get called "cute puuupppy, yes you are" by me.
