Do Tell: Speakerphone + Pets Equals . . .

Though North now spends my mini vacays at Pet Camp or Wag Hotel, when I lived in NYC, I'd usually just bring him up to my parents' house to stay with Gamma and Gampa. The first time I left him was on a long trip to London, and I called often (and I mean often) to check up.

One day my mother put me on speakerphone to talk directly to North – I guess my silly pup ran all around the room from the phone and to the door looking for me! I haven't had the chance to try it since then, have you? If so, how do your furry friends react to familiar voices coming from the speaker?

last year when i lived away from my kitty my mom would put the phone to her ear while i baby-talked to her. apparently her ears perked up and she nuzzled the phone. Now that my brother is away at college, he talks to his cat when he calls home too.

LOL that's a cute story, Pet! My dog Scout does the same thing...I will shamelessly admit to "calling her" when she's staying with my parents, and she'll cock her head from side to side and run around to look out the windows. Ah-dorable!

Sometimes when I put my mom on speakerphone, my dog will jump up on the couch and start licking the phone - I've never done it the other way around....

I don't do that to often because polka gets stressed and looks for me everywhere around but yes, she totally reacts when she hears my voice and some familar's voices! ;)

I don't do it anymore. I did it once and he got really distressed.

My bf has me talk to Ladybird, our doxie, on the phone. She always gets happy, then anxious when she sees I'm not there and tries to bite the phone.

It totally freaks B-Bop out! Sometimes my mom and I will call each other using a webcam and I'll talk to her dog. She walks around and always tries to peek behind the computer desk like I'm hiding back there. B-Bop just runs away haha

LOL awe I *love* doing this to my little guy, Brodie. He'll do the cute "huh?" side headcock thing, then inch up to sniff the phone, and start licking and whimpering.
