Do you do this?

I'm excited to celebrate the Christmas holiday by giving away a brand new Nintendo Wii Fit Plus. I have the Wii Fit and trust me, the Wii Fit Plus has way more to offer!

Note: This is ONLY the Wii Fit Plus with the balance board and not the Wii Console. You must purchase the Wii Gaming Console to use Wii Fit Plus.

If you'd like to enter for a chance to win, please go here for the rules and the opportunity to enter.

Me: Don't make me act ugly.

Me: One more time and you're outside in the cold for a time out.

Me: Leave him alone.

Me: You need to share. Be nice and share.

Me: Don't give me that puppy dog look, I'm still mad at you.

Me: Don't talk back.

Me: You already had a treat. Who do you think I am? A sucker?

Me: Can I eat my food without you bugging me?

Me: It's night night time. No. Don't even try to pout. Go to bed!

Me: You have gas issues. Say excuse me!

No, I'm not talking to Boo or to a child, I'm talking to the dogs. I just realized that when I talk to them, I'm beginning to sound more and more like their mommy and less and less like I am talking to dogs.

Humble has had some sharing issues lately. He has a nice, soft blankie that he doesn't want the other two to sit on so he takes the blankie in his mouth and pulls it out from under them and then walks around with it.

Selah is just plain ol girly girly and thinks that I was put on this earth to pet her all day long.

Sam, well, he's just such a tolerant guy. No matter what the other two do, he lays there waiting for me to yell, "What did you do????"

I think I need help. Is this a sign of needing grownups to talk to? Maybe I've been unemployed way too long. I'm really starting to feel the strain of it all. Talking to my dogs like they are people. Please tell me I'm not alone!

My daughter has 3 cats and she sounds the exact same way! I suspect you're in the majority!

Mari said...

You are so funny! I don't have a dog, but I talk to my cat the same way. They do become part of the family!

Funny, my husband says that having a dog is like having a 2 year old for 15 years! I think he just might be right!

I not only TALKED to my dog, but he talked back. We would have this "give and take" every evening where he would come up to me at 8pm SHARP and tilt his head....I'd say "WHAT!?" He'd "chuff" and look towards the kitchen. I'd saw "WHAT!?" and he'd walk into the kitchen, look at me to make sure I was watching, then sit and stare at the freezer.

Yep. Nightime ice cream.

Yes. I talk to Santana as if she were a person. And she talks back...for real. I haven't learned her language yet, but I'm working on it.

Hahha! This one made me laugh out loud: "Don't make me act ugly". I'm going to use that on my children!

Hello! I'm a new follower. Enjoyed your post. I'm the same way with my dogs. They're family and you treat them the same way. My newest dog has been invading my Christmas tree and opening gifts. I talk to her and wag my finger at the same time.

I tend to treat my 3 dogs like they are my babies, especially my smallest one, Jeter. Toby completely understands everything that is going on and every word I say. Ginger is also very smart and sensitive. Walks are very helpful!! The hardest part is getting out the door! In our case we have to bundle everybody up...

and... Thanks for the cookie embellishment idea!! You are so sweet Simone xoxo

I talk to my hamsters too. I even sing to them. They are the only members of the family who appreciate my singing!!

Fragrant Liar said...

You are not alone. Dogs are people too. To think otherwise is an abomination!

Frau said...

OMG so funny I do the same thing! So I wanna same it's normal cause I think of my pup as my baby. My hubby and daughter make fun of me all the time.Have a wonderful weekend!

Nezzy said...

Oh, I thought they were children! My daughter just got a six month old English Bulldog and he and the five month old babe are having 'lickin' issues. For some reason they love to chew on each other. Ewwwww!

Have yourself a fantastic weekend!

I have 4 dogs and 3 cats and I talk to them all. They answer me and they all call me 'Mommy'.

You're doing okay....for the time being. ;)

You're normal except you're funnier than most! :-)

Most dog owners talk to their dogs like that. Our dogs are our children. Mine was my first child before I had the real deal. Now my daughter talks to the dog just like I do, which is hysterical. If they bring you comfort and joy, who cares what you sound like? Just enjoy them!

This is all normal. You don't need to worry.

Mind you, when the dogs start talking back, then you need to worry
