If Our Pets Could Talk

A couple of weeks ago, nearly 250 Care2 readers described their pet in one word. I chose the words “determined” to describe Sanchez and “playful” to capture Gina.

I wonder all the time what — given the opportunity — my dogs would say to me. I’m almost certain that Sanchez spends his days trying to figure out how to get me to give him treats. Gina, on the other hand, is more interested in what’s going on around her.

Here’s what I think they would say if they could talk:

Sanchez: “Where’s my treat? Hand it over, and nobody will get hurt.”

Gina: “I want that dog’s toy and I want it now!”

How about your dogs? What do you think they would say? Please share your pet’s words here in one or two sentences.

When I go out on the lawn my cat follows me and walks just in front of my legs...then he looks up at me with a teasing face and very clearly he says: "Catch me!!!!!"

I sometimes wonder if they could talk, would that really be better? Part of the charm is how we perceive what they are thinking.

I just lost my black lab of 16 years. If he could come back for a moment and talk to me, I'm sure he would say Thank You Dad for all those years of love and careing you have given me and I hope you find another buddy to sleep on your bed and receive the love you have given me. (I love you Shadow)

If they could talk they'd no doubt have a lot of interesting things to say. ;)

My cat most often would say: "Hi, why are you not playing with me?? What is wrong with you? I'm not asking for much, just play, play and play some more!!! But sure, the treat stuff are fun, too. Do I give you a nose kiss or just a high five? Where is your mind my love, right now? I'm here!!!"
