i just told my dog he was going to have to wait for dinner because i wasn’t ready to make his yet…he is now in the corner sulking and sighing VERY LOUDLY and licking his chops.
his vocab is amazing (i’ve had him for 10 years) but sometimes i feel like he understand way more than i think he does!
are your pets like this?

Not with words… Cause they’re cats, so vocabulary, not so much… But they’re all very affectionate, except my female cat, but whenever I’m sick or sad, she cuddles with me and won’t leave my side. It’s as if she feels it.

HAHA yes! I jut told my kitty she’s getting a bath next week Thursday and she just ran away from me and into FI’s lap. What a slut.

Yes! Our cats know when we’re going away, even if there are no suitcases out. I suppose they don’t know, but they get really uncharacteristically moody about three hours before – every time.
On a sad note, the rescue horse that I worked with intensely for over a year was just adopted out suddenly. I went out to the pasture where he was at to get my horse and he (the rescue) trotted up to me and buried his head in my chest. He’s not usually anything like that (very slow to show affection, he was beaten with a 2×4 while tied up.) It was so hard, but so sweet.

A few weeks ago I was so upset about wedding planning and was bawling. Nala (my cat) ran up to me and began climbing on me checking if I was okay. Keep in mind she’s not a cuddly cat but she does talk a lot! Sweetest thing!

haha totally. I talk to my dog all the time, just narrating random things. Sometimes when I say stuff I am SURE he knows just what i mean and it weirds me out.
Other times I wish he understood me and he clearly doesnt.
Like when I tell him to STFU at 5am or he’s going to get thrown in the hall like every other morning and he STILL EFFING BARKS (and no, he doesn’t have to pee and he isn’t hungry. he’s just a butt-head)

@CorgiTales: Hahaha! I love that you called you dog a butt-head. That’s how I feel about my baby boy. He just barks for no reason and makes momma crazy!
I always speak for my babies – because I KNOW what they’re thinking.

yes! when i’m at my parents (and lived there after college) “my” dog abigail would come sit with me without fail if i had a bad day and was upset. its like she recognized my demeanor and knew to comfort me. she would lay her head in my lap too, which she never does any other time. shes my bud 😀

My dog is just a butt. But I KNOW he understands everything I say because when I tell him something he does the EXACT opposite!. Oh, he knows whats goin on…..
But something that I did find a little odd and funny was one time I was babysitting a friend of mines children at their house. They have 1 big, big dog (not sure the breed) and 1 littel tinnny Chihuahua. Well I was 7 weeks pregnant with my son at the time and the tiny Chihuahua kept barking and nipping at my feet, and the big dog kept trying to by my protector like I was being attacked or something. He wouldnt leave my side. I knew he could sense that I was pregnant.
It was charming though! =)

Wow, our pets are ALMOST that smart lol. But you’re right, I don’t think we give our pets enough credit.
When Roxy first because ours, she would chew thing A LOT more than now, and when we asked which dog did it, Abby(our first puppy) would back away. But if she did it, she would put her ears and heard down, and then slowly back away.
There’s just too many stores lol

My tiniest baby, Vera will act all tough and go bark… then she knows that she is not allowed to bark so then she will run over to me and roll over on her back acting all cute… she knows!!! Here she is being cute and quiet.

Yes, all of my pets are that way. I remember my dog licking my hands after I tore open my leg a second time (I was crying) and my cats will look at me when I talk to them, then depending on what I say they’ll wink or turn their heads…lol probably doesn’t mean anything, but I like to think they understand me!

My mom’s dog, a Newfoundland, understands everything I think lol Once I was sweeping, and I told her to go lay in the dining room because she was in the way, and she got up and went and laid exactly where I told her. I didn’t push her out of the way with the broom, or poke her, or point at where I wanted her to go, she just understood lol Another time, my sister was trying to sit on the couch, but the dog, being 115lbs, was taking up most of the space. My sister told her to move over so Gabby stood up, did a complete 360, and laid right back down where she was lol Such a tease.
