Canine Communication

This past week I was home alone with the pooches.  When Sam travels for work, I take the opportunity to take a step back from the weekly craziness and enjoy some time alone.


But a lot of alone time means a lot of non-human communication.  I spent many hours at home alone with Edison and Tesla as company.

This resulted in a lot of unanswered communication.  Add in the fact that I had a presentation this weekend, they heard a lot of my voice!


Do you talk to your pooches? And how much is too much?

  1. I talk to my canine niece and nephews all the time (they spend most of their days hanging out with me). I ask them how they're feeling, are they hungry ("are you kidding?"), I explain what projects I'm working on. I think they enjoy the interaction.

    1. Haha, too funny! I definitely complain to Tess a lot because I know she'll never think any less of me and she's more my "girlfriend" for those types of things. But Edison is WAY more attentive, so it actually seems like he's listening to you most of the time.

  2. Since I work from home, this is my life! HAha. I don't talk to the dogs much apart from the usual "time to eat" "wanna go out" "who's a good boy" kinda stuff. I keep it calm & minimal because I need them to be mellow while I'm working. Then sometimes I get silly with them when we're about to go out. :)

    1. HA! I could only imagine! I've tried to work at home on the weekends and somehow get roped (no pun intended) into a game of tug!

  3. I talk to Boomer and Dottie all the time. But it varies what I say. Sometimes I just tell them they are beautiful and loved. Other times I'm singing and they just happen to be in the room. Either way I think they like it. There is always a tail wag or smile or they jump up and want more chin and tummy rubs.
