Everybody does it, we talk to our pets. For instance, I went out this afternoon and Charlie my little Cat followed me out, the cat flap is sealed up so other cats can't come in the house. So what did I say? "Charlie, if you come out you won't be able to get back in for a while" like he is going to understand what I said :-)

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

Same here with my dog buddy. He is not an animal he is one of my kids. I spoil him just the same as the other children. only difference, he has alot more hair.

He has a vocabulary of about 50 words. For instance I ask him where is the fish. He goes to the Oscar tank barks while on his hind legs.

Good judgement comes from experience, experience comes from bad judgement

Because we can talk freely with our pets because they won't/can't judge...Although I've seen some Pomeranian's that could be a bit judgmental...lol

Ha ha that was a good movie Yas. Wilson was pretty cool but they dont have to be alive to talk to, i still talk to Roxy even though she`s in a wooden box on the shelf at home :(
I got a new dog a couple of months ago, Miss Tickle and i talk to her as well because whatever i say she seems interested in and more importantly never argues about anything!

because they are the only ones who truely listen and show interest in what your saying.

I got to say when I go out with my dogs we play around like kids, I throw them in the water and Akira hides and I stand there like come on you know it is your turn and he comes back all sad about being thrown in a river lol but then he chase after me to soak me back and I play hide and seek with them, I can read them well and they can read me perfectly. They sure know what biscuit, walk, and wheres daddy means :)

Like wise with my cat she always tells me its time for bed before I know it is :) And she always knows when something is on mind and I need cheering up, she will sit on me and let me get it all of my chest and out in the open :) And she knows what I mean when I open our back gate and say dont you be trying to kill Yoyo again ( black cat that lives 2doors down)

Also I speak to my oscars :) I say Auski, Shinji you want your food and they get all excited :)

I'm living my life, but not necessarily in the right order :)
