Remember how a lot of kids and even adults would say they wished their pets and even animals could talk? We all have our reasons for wanting it to be so. Kids for all the cartoons and films they’ve seen, and us adults for the companionship in our best friends that we desire so much. See, we humans are natural “anthropomorphizes”.
That is, we have a natural tendency to ascribe all sorts of thoughts and meanings to random other things in life. If we can do it for inanimate objects like a car, a bag, or your favorite pair of shoes, what can we do for a living, animate ones? When a person speaks to an animal, he or she uses short, simple sentences and a higher-pitched voice!
Much like how we talk to kids! It’s a natural instinct of sorts. That parental, caring part of us takes over when we speak to a more innocent life form. But can our animal friends talk back and respond to us? You bet they can! We do too! Think of a toddler babbling senselessly while looking at you. Wouldn’t you pay attention and entertain the child?
Well, Lola’s no different. She’s sharing some of her insights with the lady and we were all ears! It’s interesting to note that mares and foals communicate and bond silently, even imperceptible to the human eye. Yet here you have a talkative one in Lola. She converses for a bit before walking around and hiding behind her mom. Like a toddler!
Chances are Lola and this lady have become very good friends. Our furry friends are good at remembering kind humans who interact with them. Thank you for telling your stories, Lola!
