On why we give our dogs voices.
Raise your hand if your dog speaks to you in English.
Mine is raised even though Im still typing. Big mutt Franklins voice (thanks to my amazing ventriloquism skills) is very high-pitched and kind of screechy. I was trying to figure out how to describe it to you last night when Edith Bunker from All in the Family came to mind. Franks voice is like hers friendly but piercing. Hell think nothing of screaming out to me from another floor of the house: Daaaad, where are you? Or, with one eye on little shiba inu Rosie hell reassure himself by asking, Dad, you love me more than huh, right? (He says huh for her thick New York accent, that one, even though he originally hailed from Tennessee.)
