Do you guys talk to your pets? How?
Sometimes I speak to them in Baby Talk, but sometimes I really want them to understand what I am saying in clear English (for instance, "get the ball", or "come here and sit"). I have three very bright Rottweilers and they really do have a great command of many words. My old boy listens...kind of, when he wants to. My younger girl is super smart and listens when there is something in it for her. Our young, big boy understands everything you tell him. I keep waiting for him to offer to do our tax returns!
