    me and my dog, prince, have a certain way of communicating.
    of course, i do all the talking, he does all the listening.
    but my voice alters into this distorted pet squirk.
    the crazy part is i love doing it!

    pwizzzeeeeeeeeeee, tu tu! :D

    When we got our family dog as a puupy we all talked to him like he was a baby, now that he's older he loves to still be spoken to in that tone.

    It's just pleasent for him to listen to us, and he knows that he's the center of attention.

    I can't stand the way some people talk to the pets or babies in a pseudo Elmer Fudd/Tweety bird kind of voice

    I usually yell at the cat "get off there!!"

    the cat doesnt listen..then I push the cat off of whatever it is he is on...we're comfortable like that!

    Try looking at the pet and, all of a sudden, make a real surprised look. Even raise your hands in surprise. And gasp. Most pets get freaked out.

    i talk to my dog like i would to anyone
    most of the time i whine to her
    my sister does the baby talk, as does my mom, i think its a female thing.

    my tone is either normal, sleepy, whiny, or angry and authorative.
    she understands english & spanish.
    then agian she may just have learnt to attach meaning to different word sounds even though they mean the same thing

    "queres salir?"
    "wanna go out??"

    My dog is the biggest suck ever, he loves to lay across my lap. I wouldn't call it baby talk when i talk to him but its borderline...lol. I have different nicknames for him just cause hes so cute, like sweety and crazy legs...maybe i'm weird.

    ^^^ mine too.
    I have the cutest dog ever... and I fully talk baby to him.
    some "people" swear I made him a whiner... I have no idea what they are talking about ;)

    I talk to my GF's dog in Polish.

    It's great cause when I visit Poland, I don't know how to speak the language, so I talk to everyone in dog commands.


    Lie Down! <-- that's a useful one.

    I have a Beagle and she talks to me!
    I found it most interesting the day I realized that I was able to communicate with my dog. Using sounds and words, movements and tones that we had created together. It was amazing that she learned to communicate with me. Dogs are so smart! :)

    They know things! Bailey knows that when her paws are wet, we have to wipe them, she know when I brush my teeth, that it's time for bed. She knows how to tell me that she's thirsty, or that she wants to go for a walk. She knows how to get my attention...it's honestly such a fascinating thing to observe comunication develop.

    I used to have a wiener dog! Her name was Ginny.
    We brought her here from Australia, but had to put her sleep when she was 18. :(

    I just talk to our cat like he's a real person. I always ask him "whatsup" and call him "pal".

    i've got a dog.. a jack russell terrier named vegas..... hes technically my sisters dog but hes always taken to me... one of the funniest/cutest things is when its near bedtime.. he always sleeps in my room... so if we're downstairs and i say bedtime.. he'll run halfway up the steps and wait for me to start coming up stairs... then he'll run into my room..

    usually b4 i go to bed i'm on my computer in my room though.. so vegas will hop onto my bed... and if its made.. he'll completely mess it up to make some spots for him to lay in and sleep..

    When i decide to go to bed i wake him up.. he gets up... goes to the bottom corner of the bed.. and waits for me to get settled.. as soon as i do he comes and rolls up against my chest :)

    Sometimes if i'm having a restless sleep.. i'll wake up to find him sleepign on the floor cause i was movin around too much :) and then he'll be pissed at me :)

    ... err this may all sound wierd but really its cute as hell :) and its decent to feel loved by vegas...
