My dog Buddy did something really cool today

So I was out walking my dogs Buddy and Joey during their first walk. It is killer hot today and Joey takes her time when it's hot out. So I find that Buddy moves faster when it's hot because he just wants to get back home. Joey just wants to move slowly, I think it's maybe because she's overweight or she just likes the heat. Anyway we were going down this street with lots of shade because Buddy doesn't like the sun. All of a sudden he just looked up at me as if to say I can't take this heat anymore, can we go back home? I think that's really cool how my dog talks to me. I was wondering if you think it's cool when your animal talks to you? What do your animals say to you? Do you pay attention to them when they do talk to you?

Yes, I love it when we can communicate with our pets without even saying a word. There are a lot of things that can be communicated that way, and it is a very strong bond that we share with them. They give us unconditional love, and we should give them the same, so it gets easy to read or understand their actions and vice versa.

yeah. current cat always talks to me, as well as my late pets when they were alive. if they want something, they will tell me. if they are hungry, they will go to their bowl and motion to it that it is empty, no food and water. and once, one dog brought its leash in its mouth, indicate she wants to go out for a walk. and if i ignore my cat, my cat will keep tapping on my shoulder to get my attention, or jump on me, trying to get me up to either give him his snack or food. animals have their own way of speaking.

That's cute. Dogs do adorable things. My aunt has a dog named Buddy too. When I visit, he'll put his head on my lap and look at me with these sad eyes like "Pet me..." which I can't help but do.

I just read somewhere that a dog can understand the same amount of words as a two and a half year old child, I'm not sure that I can understand that much dog language. But I do try to be aware of what I am being told to do.

The dogs talk to me all the time. Mostly to tell me they want out or want a treat or that their water is running low. They're selfish! Both of the dogs are really vocal when it comes to them wanting attention, especially Daisy. Whenever she's really happy she'll howl in a really high-pitched voice. Very different from when she's barking at strangers, you know? Their eyes are really expressive, too...I honestly think you can tell more about how they're feeling from a dog's body language than anything else.

Currently i dont have any pets living with me for various reasons, the main reason is lack of time takeing proberly care of them. But i do certainly agree there is nothing better when you feel there is a communication between you and the animal. Its just an undescribable unique experience.
