Do You Talk to Your Dog?

By MKClinton. | Dog Info

Do you speak to your pets? Most people admit to having regular conversations with their furry friends. If we aren't talking to them, there's a good chance that we are talking about them. 

 

Do You Talk to Your Dog? Are you guilty of saying any of these things?

"I was talking to the dog."

 

This conversation happens several times each day between spouses. Question: "What did you say?" Response: "Nothing, I was talking to the dog."

"Is this a dog-friendly event?"

 

It is our version of "Are the kids invited?" If the answer is "no" pet parents usually choose to stay home with those who really "˜get them' a.k.a. the dogs.

"Is that dried slobber?"

 

The answer to that question is usually "yes" but the mystery is how it got on the ceiling.

"What are you rolling in?

 

This is an age-old question and the answer is usually the stinkiest stink around. You will find yourself asking this after you have just given your pup a bath.

"Are you wiping your mouth on me?"

 

We know that dogs see things a little differently than humans but do we all look like giant napkins to them?

"Can your dog come to my dog's birthday party?"

 

There is no shame in throwing your best friend a party to celebrate their birthday. A bouncy castle might be a bit too much but a wading pool is fine. Of course, it's just not a party without a special doggy cake and party hats.

"Hold the phone down so my dog can hear me."

 

Admit it, you have talked to your dog on the telephone. Have you ever called and left a voicemail so they could hear your voice during the day?

"My phone has 3,000 photos of my dog."

 

You scroll through your phone and realize that you have more photos of your pet than you have of your children.

"This will be perfect for the dogs"

 

Pet parents are buying cars and homes based on their dog's comfort. The fact is more millennium couples are choosing to have pets instead of children. The auto industry is already designing models with our pets in mind.

"I'm cooking this for the dog."

 

It is not unusual for us to have a microwaved dinner while the dogs enjoy a homemade meal. There is truth in the statement, "My dogs eat better than I do."

"Mind your manners."

 

We all want our dogs to make a good impression when we are out in public. I am not sure that reminding them of your previous lectures on how to act helps but we still give it a try; "We talked about this already!"

"I'll be home in a little bit."

 

Leaving your dog at home is never easy. We must find a television program for them, explain where we are going and what time they can expect us home. It never hurts to remind them to be good, give them a kiss and a treat before you leave. The upside of leaving is that you always return to a hero's welcome. Okay, now it's your turn! What do you say to your dog when nobody is around to hear you? Talk to Your Dog and Dog Seat Covers: Cargo, Dog Bed Liner, Bed Cover: 30% Off Premium Seat Covers

EXCELLENT SEAT COVER

We liked the first cover so much that a few days later we purchased a second one. The cover installs very, very easily, fits and covers the rear seat and the back of the front seats of our Subaru Tribeca perfectly, has flaps that cover the door-side edges of the rear seat, and stays perfectly in place. Spilled or tracked water beads up on the material and can be easily wiped off. At first our dog did tend to slide just a little on the new cover, but he soon learned to stand, sit, and lay just as well as he did before on the uncovered seat. The hammock portion seems like it might provide some little bit of protection in a sudden stop (our guy will chew apart any "doggie seat belt" type of restraint in very short order - so that option is out of the question for us). As to keeping him out of the car front-area - well, our long-legged Standard Poodle has no problem in still looking closely out the front windshield by putting his front feet on the center console - straddling the hammock - with no problem whatsoever. But we did discover that having the hammock in place does allow us to safely keep his water bottle and dish, his leash, and an old towel on the floor under the hammock - where he can no longer get at them (especially the leash and towel) to chew on them. All in all, an excellent seat cover.

My furbabies don't like leather seats!!!! But they love this seat cover!!!

Very hard to find a split bench seat cover at a reasonable price, this one fit the bill. Easy to install, very durable and looks to be easy to clean. Wanted something that would protect the leather seats and was pet friendly (hate it when the material of regular seat covers snags toenails and collars). I don't think I will have to buy another for many years!!!

great cover

This is actually a replacement for my original 4 knines cover which was 4 years old. I used it daily (bringing my pup to work with me) and washed it weekly, so the backing finally started to flake apart and come off. This newer version is easier to put over the headrests, great improvement in the strap and closures. Also the best improvement is the side flaps, the old cover didn't have these. These flaps help to catch the dirt from dogs feet when they are jumping up into the car, instead of it going on the side of the seat.

Split Rear Dog Seat Cover - Fitted - No Hammock

I had ordered this item from an on-line site and was extremely disappointed when I received the wrong item. I was impressed with the quality of the seat cover and decided to contact 4Knines directly. I placed my order with Maggie and received the Split Rear Dog Seat Cover within three days. The seat cover fits nicely in my new Honda CR-V and as stated by 4Knines, is very easy to install and remove. My 8-month old labradoodle Brodie likes the comfort, and friends agree with him. Great quality item, reasonably priced, and outstanding customer service. Thanks 4Knines.
