Only a little weird? Let me tell you, being that weird dog person or not is not defined by how silly things I say to my dog. Or if I coo. I don't. I feel uneasy even babytalking to my nephew and niece who are a toddler and a baby.
I checked everything that bordered what I could or might say. Some points do not apply because my dog is too well trained to do things worth comments like that. I may have lost something in translation too.
If they had asked about toys, beds, obsession over what I feed him, the fact that even though I know he causes me to lose sleep by sleeping in my bed I allow him to sleep there, and thrown in a few more phrases, I may have earned "Complete lunatic.
