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.
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. ;)
