Is it weird to have a conversation with your dog

Report as

I don't think so. If you love your dog and he understands you, it's normal.

Nah, it's a good place to let out feelings and anger and the dog won't talk back.

Me too. I love that movie and I understood their relationship very well. It wAs beautiful.

It is an AWESOME movie! I can understand why he was talking to his dog. My parents both own their own businesses, so they will be gone for months at a time to go on business trips. She (le dog) will be the only thing I talk to for a LONG time. I can understand it too

Me too! Except for all my friends on Ask. Until my husband comes home, our dog, Chance, was the only one I'd talk to for days. She was a great friend for 17 years. My husband is my best friend, but she was a close second. Well, it's not a race, I think they both tied for 1st! Happy! Happy!

Well see, now Ravin, you are bi-lingual. You speak English and your pooch language. I know your pup tells you when it's time to go out. Go for a ride? wag. wag. Go for a walk?... Please ! Dinner? YYIPPEEE! Happy wag, turns in circles, and shake the head in happiness.
I'm pretty sure you've looked at your pup and said, "good dog!", "no!" "YeAAA!"
You must admit, you have had a talk or two with your pooch! :) :) :)

My dog Bella and I have figured out the solution to World Peace, that's how much I talk to her. She talks back with her eyes, tail, she puts her paw on my hand, curls up by me, and she even smiles. I will gladly be called weird if that's what it is.

Huge and Happy smiles through out! We are not weird at all. I had those same conversations with Chance!! I do know one thing for sure, our dogs and the planet we come from have a much more peaceful life than the one many are faced with. Stop. Look. Listen. You won't believe what you can see and hear. It's that simple! YeeAAA! I'm excited someone else, whom I respect, has the same appreciation for her Bella. Happy! Happy!
Report as
Hi Sweet Merlin ! I just left you a comment under Hippy Dude's answer. Yes! A happy world with our dogs. I feel she's saved my life, and she didn't even know she was doing it. :)
Report as
I was having a similar conversation with a friend of ours the other day. Sometimes it is amazing how animals and people are placed together. Bella needed you and you her. The universe is truly a mysterious place. I think she knows. But, she also knows she needed you too. Not just from the shelter, but you were her chosen human. It's nice to think you two have an understanding and language nobody else knows. I do believe that.

Chance was the same way. She was a pound puppy. She and all of her brothers and sisters were tagged to be put down that night. I drove back home to my husband, who wasn't my husband yet, and asked him for $40. He gave me the $ and I went back and got her. I couldn't save them all, but she had called out to me earlier. I knew it. She knew it. I brought her home and that was that! A very happy 17 years. Hence, her name Chance. We gave her a Chance for life. :)

That is so sweet. Yes I believe this was meant to be...Chance and Bella...

I talk to my dog to the walls, to my tablet, to the kids and adults in my life, and the dog is far less judgemental, even my walls judge me! -_-

I know the feeling. My bedroom walls are judging my choice in color. They wish I would make a decision on that 8x10 sunrise picture. I've changed it twice. And, they hate the blinds. Chance, on the other hand, didn't have a personal preference. She said everything was fine as long as she had a roof over her head.

I have 3 dogs and talk to them often. I like it , since all they do is wag their tails and give me a good audience and no back- talk! Thankfully , they do not speak English , or I would be extremely concerned!

Absolutely! We solved many World problems together. Days would go by and we would engage in our conversations. Her views were leaning a little more toward watching our immediate area. She wasn't big on foreign affairs. She was big on keeping the waterways healthy and the National Parks open.

No. A lot of people find talking to their dog useful, comforting, and even therapeutic. Studies have shown that kids who struggle with reading can benefit greatly from reading to a dog. Plus, they never gossip about you. ;)
