I saw a study which showed that dogs understand about 165 words.........I absolutely talk to my Dog....and at times she talks back....albeit its barking, whining, growling and whimpering.......

I do carry on conversations with her..........there are words, she not only knows but knows what they mean.........

walk.......she goes and gets the leash
Dinner....she will fetch the dinner bowl.......if im late she brings it to me........that's understanding........shes hungry, she brings bowl dumb owner feed dog.
Bed- heads to crate, or to the foot of my bed.
Truck......runs to the passenger door waits to be let in.
Ride.....same as truck
Grammy......my elderly mother, who she loves....

tons more.........if she understands, then I talk.........

I talk to my dog and sing songs to him. I sing :

How many doggies has mummy got?
Only one but he barks a lot.
He's my baby and I love him a lot
He's mummy's little tiny tot.

Its his birthday next week and he will be getting a new toy. A nice new rubber chicken.

My friend is a dog trainer and she says it's no wonder I can't do anything with him.

Yes I do talk to my pets, even the tortoise :)

When going out I say I wont be long to my dogs. Their stomachs must be on a timer because at 5 p.m. 'ping' they will both start "talking"and dont stop until food is forthcoming :)

I'm sure my neighbours are used to hearing me talk to my hens as well especially at night when I'm shutting them in, clearing up etc. My oldest hens wont go in until I'm there to shut the door and say goodnight. They are in and out of the coop entrance clucking away until I do :)
Yeah I know I sound nuts..but its true :laugh:

I always used to talk to my cat. We would have lovely conversations as she was very chatty. Whenever I left the house I would tell her to be a good girl and what time I would be back. When I got home I would ask her how she had been.

I miss her.

Oh yes, absolutely, and invariably they will answer. I believe it makes them more intelligent too.
