I know this sounds totally weird, but my husband and I like to talk for our dogs in Spanish accents, lol. They are Chihuahuas, and they each have their special voice. It's a little odd, but cute. Do you have any weird things you do with your dogs or any odd traditions?
i talk baby talk to scout ... plus call her all kinds of goofy baby names ....... my son gets totally irritated when i do it ........ i just tell him its because he wont let me talk baby talk to him anymore lol ...... boys grow up so fast =(
That's very impressive, you should be proud! He must be a very smart dog. I know all dogs are capable, but some more than others
We do that too, lol. We have all kinds of nick names for our male. his name is toby but we never call him that. it's dude, Pimp, Guy Guy, Mr Rodrico. yeah, you need someone to pamper and cuddle, and that can be embarrassing for a grown boy, lol.
When a good song comes on the radio I dance and sing to my dog and she joins in by jumping around or just running around my feet. She probably thinks I just went crazy, but it is fun. Right now her favorite song is These Words by Natasha Bedingfield. I think she likes the part when I tell her I love her.

Well me and my big boy just have to look at each other and he will start talking to me. He will get right in my lap not let my BF close to me and will go on and on with some funny sounds. He is a very loving boy.
I used to take my Mom's cat-Beldar- and rub his sides really fast and he'd drop for me to do his tummy. I called it the "kitty car wash"-but not because of that. The first time I did it, he got all full of static, became turbo cat, and jumped into a box of packing peanuts and they stuck to him-looked like suds. Thus came the 'Beldar Kitty Car Wash"
I can't think of anything strange I do to my dogs, but today we had a strange lady come into the clinic with her little Maltese in one of those dog strollers and she provided the dog with a real baby bottle with water in it???>....coo coo!!!
When we got Flash we called her Basset Hound all the time,so now she will answer to it.You can call out every breed of dog and she will only answer to Basset Hound.If you call her a over sized weenie dog(no offense to weenie's) she gets really mad.She will growl at you.We think this is too funny.
I hold my puppy on my lap and sing while making her dance. Kinda like what you would do to a baby. She just looks at me like I'm crazy. My mother talks for the animals in a baby voice. I look at her and start laughing. She tells me what am I laughing at and I say you. She insist the dog said it.
I have a chi/ a very little spoil boy.I walks around with him wrap up in his blanket with his little head sticking out.He just love it when i do it. Hubby said I'am losing it . I told him you just jealous I can't carry you. lol......
Just the norm, call them stupid little names that I don't even understand. I call Sadie "Wubbie Puppy" alot and Owen "Siddy Sweetie" don't ask me where I got either one of those, or what the hell they mean.
I also kiss Sadie on her lips and she gets ready and likes it cause, she sticks her head out when I say "I wanna liss dem' widdew wips!!!!" Owen doesn't have big fat lips and he doesn't enjoy it as much as Sadie, but he gets kisses too when he climbs on me and puts his paws on my chest with his face in my face.
I talk to them like I would talk to any person on the street, like really talk to them....sometimes I have my moments of clarity and feel dumb when I realize that I am talking about stuff with a creature that has no idea what I am saying unless I am saying "cheese, eat, outside, by by" but they look like they are trying their hardest to listen and that is all that matters :)
With the kitten I will pick him up and kiss his belly. He gets called "Cwazy Kitty" alot.
If it is raining out we all get wet because they will not go unless I step out on the wet grass in the rain too. So I will be standing in the middle of the grass barefoot in my pajamas saying "come on lets go pee pee!" The neighbors are probably looking out their windows while shaking their heads and just waiting for the day I actually say the hell with it and just "go pee pee" outside with them like I am always screaming and advertising that "we" are going to do.
A couple of times they have pooped on the porch on a rainy day lol

When I give my Rotti a bath after we are done we play this little game. I will hold his towel like a cape and he will act like a charging bull. He puts his head down stomps his feet and charges me as fast as he can He will run right through my leggs and I will dry him at the same time. But he will only do this with me and not my BF how funny.
