This would never work with cats (or kittens)

Great tagline.

The only animal pet psychics can talk to is my half-horse half donkey...

Yes thats right... my ass!

Meh, it's called paying attention...

Hip dysplasia is most common among larger breeds of dogs, especially German shepherds, rotweillers, Labrador retrievers, golden retrievers, mastiffs, and Saint Bernards.

um yeah. I'm the new agey type. I believe in the unbelievable. Just not this crap.

Hmm...let me try a canine-human mind meld. It's an incredibly rare psychic power possessed only by me and three other clerks at this store.

''Most people who love animals know there is a nonverbal communication,'' Shaw said.

Of course there is. But it's a one-way street from the person to the animal. My dogs have lived with me for 8 years now, and they are attuned to my slighest eye movement or body motion. If they hear a car pull up in the driveway and I'm expecting company, they don't even bother to open their eyes.

But if I'm kicked back thinking the day is over, and a car pulls into the driveway, my dogs start barking immediately. And that's before I've even moved or become aware of it. That's only a small example of how they read me.

Of course, I can tell the look they give me when they want to go outside, or when they want to play, etc. But I don't believe a dog's (or cat's or horse's) brain is constructed in such a manner as to create logical thought patterns for humans to follow.

If there is animal-to-human communication, I would expect it would be more likely to pheremones. Human noses still have pheremone ducts inside the nostril, but we jut don't use it to the extent animals do.

Diogenes' Cat:
"Listen, you try and give me that hairball medicine one more time and I'm gonna gut you like a fish. Now feed and pet me."
2002-10-08 05:20:24 PM  
Sorry, that should have been pheromones, not pheremones. Duh!

Forty million dollars of grant monies, eight years of studies and ten years of research, and the translator gives you: "I've got fleas. I want a banana. I've got fleas. I want a banana. I've got fleas. I want a banana. I've got fleas. I want a banana."

these are the thoughts of my dogs:

Sheba (female rottweiler mix): fix my hips please, they're killing me. I don't even want to get up anymore. Feed me treats. hug me. make Anubis and Coby stop humping me.

Coby (male lab/chow): stop shoeing me away when I finally get it on with one of the fine chicks around here. Let me bite you. Play. Feed me.

Glory (female german shepherd): play with me. feed me. throw the ball for the 100th time tonight. please don't let Shreen kill me.

Anubis (male border collie): play with me. stop Shreen from humping my head. let me chew on you.

Sobek (male cocker spaniel): play with me. rub my belly. play with me. let me hump Glory's leg.


I'm not psychic but I think I can understand what my dogs are saying to me.

My beagle: "I'M STARVING!!!!!! DAMMIT DID YOU HEAR ME????? I FEEL FAINT!!! FEED MEEEEEEEE!!! Ok, thanks for that sliver of a sliver of food but that was soooo not enough. Where's the rest? I'm still reeeeeeeeallly hungry. Are you gonna finish that? Did you know there's still some chicken in that pan on the stove in the kitchen? Yeah, right over there, let me show you. See, it's right here. Are you just gonna let it sit there? It's just gonna go bad. I'll eat it. Ok, I'll wait right here by the stove to remind you that there's still chicken in that pan.

Am I the only one who read it as "Telepathetic communication with pets"? ... Maybe I need some coffee.

"How come you never sniff my butt?"
2002-10-08 10:27:05 PM  
"Why did you cut my balls off? Why?"
2002-10-08 10:38:32 PM  
Rev, Doc, and Nanoo,

My dog won't pee if I am watching her. Maybe she is my mother reincarnated. Should see John Edwards about this?

me: here, boy.

Bo's thoughts: Hmmm, does he mean it? Maybe he has food! No he never has food. Wait, I smell *something* that could be food. I'll go. Man wouldn't it be great to play in the trash? Stoopid cat. "BARK"! Hehehe. Maybe I'll go see if the dishwasher is open and there's something to lick. Man. my ear itches. {scratch, scratch, scratch) Ahhhh. Right, where was I? Oh yeah, I could use some toilet water. Damn! Lid's closed. I'll just sit here for a minute. Mmmm, cool tile floor. Busy day, could use a little shut eye. I hope no one needs to pee before dinner time. Zzzz.

me: Here, boy.

Bo: Huh? Who said that?
