    I say "I see you, I see you" and "Watcha doin', watcha doin'" in that pet-talk way to my fish all day long.

    How about you?

    Kitteh, Kitteh, Kitteh!

    While we usually call them Gremlin and Pudenda they also respond (or don't as the case may be) to Szechuan Kitty and Kung Pao Kitty. Just in case the world ends the kittehs need to know how they well help us icon_twisted.gif

    Well, if it tells you anything, my parrot's current favorite things to say include the following:

    "Hey baby!"
    "Dinobird gimme kisses! Muah!"
    "Take a bath?"
    "C'mere!"
    "What?"
    "Stop it."
    "Shut up!"
    "Goddammit."

    And also, we dance to bad pop music together when nobody's looking.

    I have a penchant for personifying dogs ... canis domesticus are man's best friend ... it's hard to imagine any other creature that understands man as well as a dog.

    Whenever I come home, and my dog is in his crate... I say,

    "Poopyyyyy" or "Poopsy" (those are a couple of his nicknames)

    I also wrestle with him and growl and bark at him... haha... that gets him really hyper and he runs around the apartment like a bolt of lightning.... he then starts barking at me... and then I bark back... and so it goes back and forth.... we have barking conversations. HAHA. Good thing my building has great insulation!

    I love this thread... I love pet people!



    This is me playing with my dog when he was about 6 months old! So cute!!!

    i used to joke that my friend's dog was "Charlie No" because when he called him it was always, Charlie, no, stop it, drop it, NO!!!!

    as for me, i say " Boys!" a lot, since theres 2 of em and they're terriers which involves a lot of hollering. also, a lot of "Kevin puppy" my nickname for #1 and "little raleigh poopie pants" for #2.

    why is that weird? icon_redface.gif

    When Little White Bastard was complaining to me about how Maverick (badmikeyt's beagle) invaded his room today and drank all his water after trying to eat the poop out of his litter box.

    meow

    "really?"

    raaaaaawr

    "so what did you say?"

    mraw

    "really? so what did he say?"

    raw!

    "reeeeally?"

    reeeaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrraaaaaaar!

    "Okay,okay I'll talk him!"




    "Maverick, stop trying to eat Bastard's poop!"

    Maverick however interpreted this as me saying Cookie! and immediately began jumping up on me in cookie induced frenzy before sliding and almost falling on the hardwood several times in a manic attempt to get to where the cookie jar is kept in the kitchen.

    Photobucket figure 1: green cookie dispensed by fat white cookie dispenser

    At which point Bastard thought maybe he could steal the cookie after Maverick used his superior height and begging skills to retrieve it. He soon abandoned this plan upon the realization that trying to pry anything from the jaws of a food obsessed beagle is an exercise in futility. After this, he glared at both myself and the beagle in disgust before retreating to the bedroom to plot his revenge.

    Photobucket this is my "I'm going to kill you all in your sleep" face

    The coolest game you can play with a dog is this: grab his ears and pull them back so your hands cover them. Then ask in an excited voice," Who's a llama!? Whooo'sss a llaaamma!!?

    At this point, they will be upset. In order to make them happy again say," No, nooo you're not a llama. Noooooo. No llama."

    The longer the snout the more they might actually look like a llama.

    I think my dog has selective hearing, words like: "walk" and "park" get him up running to the door, while barking. Phrases like "look out the window!" gets him running through the house to the front room, dilegently looking for something like a cat. When you ask him to sit or stay it doesn't register quite so quickly. hmmmm icon_lol.gif

    We sometimes have long conversations and I totally understand what he's getting at. He's pretty sassy as you can probably tell from the picture.

    Our dogs are bilingual.
    They don't listen in 2 languages....

    When I shovel, it's Nana that does all the talking... barking at the shovel and trying to eat the snow that I'm pushing. As if there isn't enough elsewhere on the driveway? Get your own snow!
