  • It's one of the other...

    Either my dog Rusty has started speaking English, or every single member of our family and several friends have all lost our minds and become delusional! No kidding, he has started speaking (he sounds exactly like Scooby Doo LOL).

    His first word was "No!" Said this when asked to get off the bed, go out to pee in the rain, other appropriate moments. Now he's started calling me, "Ma." When I come into a room or he comes in and finds me he says, "Ma!" Just imagine Scooby pronouncing these words and you'll have it.

    Okay, so two words isn't much of a vocabulary, but he's a DOG! We've always thought he was pretty bright, but figured that in comparison to our other dog, any dog would seem bright. (LOL, poor Frisco, he really is dumb! But lovable.)

    Does anyone else have pets that speak? I need to know if I should enroll in the local looney bin or not!

    UPDATE: Rusty has added a new word to his immense vocabulary (bringing the grand total to three, LOL). He says, "Yeah." And it's funny, he says it in different tones for different things. Like, if he's been whining and I say, "Do you want to go outside?" He says, "Yeeeahh," in this tone that's almost sarcastic, like "Why do you think I've been sitting her whining?" But if I ask him if he wants a treat, he says, "Ye-yeah," very happy sound. Of course, if we try to get him to talk in front of other people, he just walks away... so now everyone we know thinks we're crazy (if they didn't before, LOL).

      OMG Carolyn I just started laughing so loud when I read that! Hubby is in the next room and he started making fun of me, that is too much!! I've never heard a dog talk but I don't think you need to go to the looney bin.

      I have been diagnoised for 6 1/2 years now. I have taken a long break from the ICN but really miss helping out my fellow IC patients and want to get back into posting.
      1st hydro 4/07 showed no visible signs of IC but tons of mast cells in all my biopsy samples which did prove IC.
      2nd hydro 4/13/09 showed dark purple glomerulations and I had a capacity of 450 cc's. This hydro proved that my IC had progressed.
      I have tried every oral medication as well as rescue instills and DMSO.

      I have been lucky enough to see Dr Hanno, the top IC specialist in PA who has told me due to the fact that I have not responded to any "standard" treatments that I have a severe, end stage case of IC with a horrible quality of life (didn't have to tell me that last part!)

            We've had a dog who tried very hard to talk. He would look very serious and say "wa wa wa" --- and our Meggie dal says mmmmmmmm when she's feeling lovey.

              OMG, I just went and watched the talking cats video! Christine, if you don't mind having your husband make fun of you again -- definitely worth watching!

              Well, those are cats and Rusty is a dog, so his voice is deeper, but that's pretty much what he sounds like!

                A friends of mine from childhood had a chihuahua who would say "Harold". We never knew who this "Harold" was he spoke of though.. Still cracks me up to think about the dog.

                      My cat quacks. At the adoption day, I picked her up, she sat in my lap, patted me on the shoulder with one paw, looked me in the eyes & then quacked. So, I took her home.

                            haha

                            what a great post!! my one doggie sandy, she was what I like to call THE SNITCH. She would rat on everyone, all the time, about everything. Though we didn't necessarily understand what she was saying, she would always talk to us for sooo long when we came in the door. Poor BamBam our rottweiler(both on the otherside now) was always getting the blame for something! Sandy would snitch the minute we walked in the door. We would ask what happened and she'd get all serious and look at BamBam who would then pout and walk away. Sure enough we would find the plastic bag left, that once held a loaf of bread. Or, like somehow, they opened the cupboard and ate all the treats. I don't know. But it was adorable.

                            Status: Diagnosed October 2006 via cystoscopy with hydrodistention. Max anesthetized bladder capacity only 250 cc's. Mast cells and pinpoint bleeding found.

                            Remission for me means less pain for more days than not. Frequency is inevitable with a bladder this tiny! That is ok though. The difference between when I was diagnosed and now, is that I have embraced that fact. Me and the loo, we are one.

                              Well, Rusty apparently had nothing he needed to say yesterday, no speech, but this morning -- well, it's a raw, cold day and it was raining hard when Jack went to send the dogs out into the back yard to pee. Frisco, empty-headed sweetheart that he is, trotted right out and sat down in a mud puddle... but Rusty took one look at the rain, planted his butt on the floor, uttered a very clear, "RNOOO!" and would not go. Jack couldn't shove him out. You could just see Rusty thinking, "I don't see you going out there to pee! What do you think I am, stupid?" But when Jack went out, Rusty followed him, and they both got soaked. I suggested Jack might want to keep an umbrella by the back door, because I don't think Rusty is going to change his position on this issue.
