The other day after coming back from a trip to Australia, after asking my dog if she had fun and made any new friends at the doggie day care place we board them at, I explained that I was in Australia, which is a separate continent and country then the one we are on right now, but it also is has islands like Tasmania. Then I explained to her what continents, countries, and islands were.

I baby talk to all my pets. From dog to fish to rat.

I drove from Alaska to New York in wintertime with my bettas. Most froze in the backseat but the 4 that didn't, I kept them on my lap, under layers of blankies for the rest of the trip

I will sometimes start starting at my fish, then I look at the time and realize over an hour has gone by! Sometimes my BFF is there and we will do it for even longer, giving the fish all voices and acting out some super dramatic movies as they swim around interacting one another.


I have pretty much no social life because I have birds lol Most of my friends don't understand, but my BFF does :)

I held full blown conversations with my dog when he was alive and i was at home alone... I swear he knew English.
I talk to the horse that I ride weekly and try to reason with him. He wins all of our arguments.
And little fishy Winston, well we are at the beginning stages of our relationship, but he lets me pet him occasionally. O.o
