I confess I do, even in public and I am not ashamed (though possibly mad ) Like today we went passed some workmen digging up the verge. As we go by I start nattering to Cadbury, "That's a big hole, Cadbury, I bet you'd like to get in there and start digging. I don't think they would appreciate it though..." and so on. So come on, do you talk to your dogs, even when other people can hear? And what do you say to them?
