Baby Talk, Doggie Style

O.K., I realize that my title seems slightly pornographic, but it makes me laugh so it's staying.

I think all of my friends out there in bloggy land know about my dear little dog, Oskar. Say hello, Oskar.



I just realized that when I talk to him, I talk the most embarassing baby talk! Do you guys do this too?

The phrase, "Did you get that squirrel, what a good boy to get the squirrel", comes out as "Deh ooooo dit da SK-werl, wha a goo bouy do dit da SK-werl" in an abnormal voice with way too much emphasis on wrong syllables.

Now I'm sure my husband and sons are used to it, but I just realized that I yell these things out to Oskar when he's in the yard. I just realized that I yell these things out to Oskar when he's in the yard and my neighbors are out in their yards. Neighbors with no pets of their own to baby talk to. No wonder they all think I'm nuts!

Now in the "Feel Sorry For Me" category, will you look at my arm??



Good grief, it looks like I was in a gang fight instead of the hospital!

What a cute post with your dog. I am sorry you had to do that to your arm.

Haha! The title alone is what brought me to visit!!

I don't talk baby talk anymore to the cats, tryin a new phase in these here parts. My twelve year old son tries to talk to my five and a half year old son in baby talk all the time, pisses me off! So, no way is any baby talk allowed, anywhere!!

I baby talk to my cats every morning when I come home from work. "Heloooooo my babies! Were you good, did you have a god night, do you want some treeeeeeeeats?" Ugh.

OUCH! that does look like you have been in a a fight, lol

and dont worry. Most dog owners are guilty of baby talking to them at least once in awhile.

Oh geez, who in the world was in charge of your IV? You poor thing!

I think it's absolutely endearing how you talk to your little Oskar!

ROFL about the 'hello Oskar'
Still hahahahaha-ing.

Anyhoo, if one of our dogs caught a squirrel I'd be more inclined to yell: LET GO OF THAT SQUIRREL!!! NO!!! LET GO!!! YOU STUPID BAD DOG!!!

(We don't have that many squirrels and I like to see them in our garden.)

I don't even babytalk to babies.

Your arm is no contest to my abused leg of course (you remember the little mishap this summer?), but it still looks quite bad. Did the medical people in 'your' hospital have a bad hairday and take it out on you?

Hope you feel better!

Hey there! I was just thinking about you and thought I would drop you a note. I'm praying for you. Hope you are feeling better. Take care my friend!

Ouch! Your arm looks painful. Hope you're feeling better.
