Disclaimer - I am going to keep these 'personal thoughts' to a desperate minimum - I promise.
I have begun to notice as I go through my day that I talk to my pets. Most pet owners that feel as though their pets are like their children will understand this - I understand this -as one of those people. What worries me is that I am now having full conversations with them and have also begun talking to Dante. Dante is a large goldfish (I think you can see my concern).
My dogs and my cats have full personalities and do not hesitate to share their opinions with me - all - day - long. Mostly, I appreciate their input. Topaz is a little pushy and Apache is a little whiny, but we all have our little issues. It is disconcerting though when I realize that I just held a five minute conversation with my dogs and I feel like they won whatever discussion may have been being debated. To be fair - they are really persuasive and I have little self control when it comes to them - so sue me.
It would be nice, dear friends, to be reassured that I am not going crazy in my isolated writing existence and others also "talk to the animals" to quote Doctor Dolittle. Give me a shout out and let me know I'm not alone - or give me a shout out and let me know my isolation is surely getting to me (either will strangely put my mind at rest). THANKS
