I always said I would never be one of those people that dressed up their dog or talked baby talk to them. But sadly, I do both of these things. It’s just too hard to resist the urge haha. I don’t dress Sadie up on a daily basis or anything (but she has been known to wear a sweater or other piece of clothing, as evidenced HERE). I know, I know, evil. But seriously, she looks so cute in clothes!! Haha.
I have recently become painfully aware of the fact that I make up words and talk in a completely different voice when I’m talking to Sadie. Why? I have no clue. That cute little face just brings out the loser in me apparently haha. So, I’m wondering if you talk this way to your dog, too? Do you make up words? Do you have cute nicknames for your pup? I’ll share a few of my words and nicknames.
A big one I use is Yummersons. (I use this to describe something that is yummy — duh ha. This is usually said when she is eating breakfast/dinner. For example, “Mmmmm is that yummersons?”) I also use variations of this for other words, such as sleepy sleepertons, tummersons (for tummy), stinkertons, etc. Hahaha writing this out really makes me sound insane. But I promise you, I am sane (for the most part). For some reason these words just come out of me when I’m talking to Sadie. The best part? My uncle now says a lot of them when he talks to Sadie!
As for nicknames, Sadie has quite a few: Sadie Kins, Sader Taters (or just Saders or Taters), Stinkerbelle, Puppy Pants, Monkey...
So, you be the judge: am I insane?!
