Is It Normal To Talk To Ocean County’s Pets?
It struck my friend as funny that before we left the house I told my dog where I was going first, and then where I would head next, and then where I'd be having dinner, and then the time I expected to be back home. I told her I do this all the time! I guess it's my way of reassuring the dog that, even though I am leaving, I am definitely going to return to her. Since she was "surrendered" by her original owner, I'm sensitive to the fact she may have a fear of being abandoned again. Okay, okay, maybe I should leave analysis to the actual pet psychologists, but the point is, I talk to Taylor all the time.
During stormy weather, I speak in a really calm voice and try to comfort her. When there's a loud clap of thunder I tell her, "it's just the angels bowling up in Heaven." Though it's not true, I remember how that calmed me down as a kid when my parents said it to me.
What about you? Do you tell your pets your plans for the day? Do you talk to your pets when you've had a bad day? Do you talk out a problem with them?
