I have very much enjoyed this thread! I have a funny one for you.

Last year I took my wife to the store, and was waiting for her in the parking lot. It was a busy day for the store, and I had to park out by the main road that the lot butted up next to. It was getting dusk, and I was idly watching the traffic go by, when a policeman pulled a motorist over right next to me. There was a light pole between me and them, and as soon as they pulled over, a very large red tailed hawk landed on the pole above and appeared to be screaching at the police car, appearing to be chastising the policeman in a very persistant manner.

The policeman noticed as he walked up to the car he had pulled over, and kept looking up at the very unhappy hawk as he was talking to the motorist.

The hawk continued his screaching and menacing looks, which was obviously disconcerting to the policeman. As he walked back to his car with the drivers documentation, he made a shooing motion at the hawk and said "Get out of here!" in an agitated voice.

The hawk started dancing from foot to foot and bobbing his head up and down and his screeches got very excited indeed! It was hilarious to see the cop hurriedly shuffle to his car and duck into his sanctuary. The hawk remained in attendance for a good 5-10 minutes and I laughed till I had tears in my eyes as I observed the policeman leaning forward and looking upwards nervously, hoping the hawk would go away, but it did not!

He got out once again, and the hawk was beating it's wings as if to say "YOU get out of here!" as it screeched down and glared at the officer with it's feathers all fluffed up making it look even bigger. It was indeed an intimidating sight and I believe if we had been in a less travelled area he may have shot it lol.

I observed the officer to hurriedly hand the driver back his documents and with no further ado he got back in his car and both of them left, to which the hawk immediately calmed down and flew off, following the police car up the road as if to escort him from the area!

I laughed my proverbial butt off at the whole exchange. I think that hawk saved the driver a ticket and I loved seeing that officer berated like that. Gave me a much needed belly laugh!

Last summer I was sitting on my deck enjoying the day and a little dragonfly came about and was sniffing at my tomatoes so I went and got my camera and came back out to take pics, I swear it was posing for my camera. Would buzz off then come right back sit right in front of me and look right at me long enough to take a pic, then it would buzz off again. It was very cute. Seemed to enjoy the attention. It hung out around me until dark. The summer days after that brought me many more dragonfly friends, but none as friendly as that one

When I had roomates one of them had a bunny rabbit. Truthfully I had never much though of bunnies as pets and this one they left in the cage most of the time because they honestly were lazy owners. So eventhough I never much cared for bunnies I would let it out to play around often and one day I was having a paticularly bad day and it came up to me and thumped it's feet then ran off, then ran back and circled around me this lasted for awhile until it had turned my mood into a better one. From then on she hardly ever went in her cage and she would wait at the bottom of my stairs for me to open my door in the morning then she would run up and hang out with me as much as possible. Honestly I started to feel like she was my pet and when I moved out leaving her behind was very very hard, I still miss her.

When I was a kid I would take stray animals home fed them and find their owners. One time I helped a bird recover from a hurt wing so it could fly free again.

I honestly dont really like animals that much to be truthful, they like to ruin my things. But i'm too empathetic and when i see big eyes staring at me for help I get all mushy, it's disgustipating.

This one is about a potentially violent dog, a young but fully grown rottweiler that belonged to a neighbor for some reason started loudly growling and barking at me I slowly backed up then it was running after me I turned around ran as fast as I could for my door, I knew I wouldn't make it before it was on me so I tunred around almost face to face at this point and screamed a gutteral scream and told it to "shut the f... up" and it stopped looked up at me then ran off to it's home.


Not really sure if these were the kind of stories you were looking for but it was fun to share them anyways.

You're right and thank you for your wonderful post. The Rothschilds and Rockefellars(Jay Rockefellar sen. of my state) would've scared the skunk away, or killed it. I knew it was a special thing and have always been grateful for it. My daughter got to help take care of a baby deer after it's mother was hit by a vehicle. She bottle fed it many times while holding it like a baby.

Rabbits are incredible pets, and are very interactive and entertaining. They also make a surprising range of vocal noises and are endlessly entertaining to watch as they do their leaping "bunny dances". However, they chew cords a lot and when ours finally got shocked and ruined our television, we found that literally every cord it could get to was chewed and we were lucky not to have had the house burn down.

It was fairly well litter trained and everything. Funny, when it finally died, we found another rabbit in it's hutch the same week! Apparently someone didn't want one and knew we had an opening lol Nobody fessed up to it though and we never did find out where it came from.

Hey there-you know,re the Rottweiler-you maybe onto something here! Look at the post on the first page,by member randyvs-he had a similar experience with 2 Rotties-facing up to them loudly and assertively,made them back down and retreat! As for animals following one home:-) a beautiful Old English Sheepdog followed me home from school once.We had enough to feed it,along with our 13/14 yr old corgiXwhatever.We were poor,but ate like kings due to my dad's job as farm manager,he always came home with tons of farm produce+meat,aside from his low wage.Yet one day i came home from school to find she called the SPCA to remove both dogs.I was disgusted especially at her cavalier discarding of the old dog,who had bn with us since i was a toddler-it was a contemptible thing to do,imo***Rabbits are sweeties,so adorable:-)-i got one from a friend,only to come home from school+find the rabbit missing.When i asked her about it,her reply was: "Oh,a hobo came knocking here asking for food,so i gave him the rabbit.We were almost out of bread,and im only to to the store tomorrow,did'nt wanna let him go with Nothing to eat" So yeah,that was my short-lived rabbit experience.Yours was lovely to read,though:-) I like dragonflies,but im totally gaga over pray mantises. And of course,also dungbeetles now! :-D

Just love this thread - thanks so much to everyone that's contributing! Last spring I saw a female fox when I was going out to my barn. She ran away but stopped short and kept looking at the overgrown pasture to my right. I figured she must have babies in the field since she kept hesitating and was watching which way I was going. A couple of nights later I woke up to the sound of many little feet running on the deck. I looked out the window and saw momma fox sitting on the deck watching her 4 babies play. They were chasing bugs near the porch light, checking out the plants, and tackling each other the way puppies will do. It was really a delightful sight. She must have stashed her babies under the deck a few days later because one of the bold ones peeked out at me when I was coming home from work. He's in the center of the photo - peeking up at the edge of the deck.
They eventually got too big for under the deck and must have moved off to the nearby woods. I'm hoping momma fox will be back this year.

I am really to sorry to hear that about your dogs and the bunny.

I had a mom who loved all animals and was super kind to them but a father who hated them especially cats. Everytime my mom would bring a cat home he'd chase it away. She eventually stopped bringing them home.

Hopefully all the animals yours included found a good safe home.

Hey,yeah she was definitely a bird person.She did like cats too,but they were never allowed in the house,and i think,because she liked to keep poultry,she used them as rodent control first and foremost.She liked the way cats Looked,but not for much interaction with them.She didnt have it in her to see animals as friends,or family members,thats the thing.It seemed a case of: People have dogs,so we'll have a dog.There was ANOTHER dog she tried to take away from me,come to think of it-a lovely Boxer named Rex that i loved extremely much-till she just told me one day: "We're giving Rex to Jacky(a colleague+good friend of her youngest son) I cried my eyes out for days,literally cried till my eyes were so swollen i could hardly see out of them,begged+pleaded,wouldnt eat-luckily she took pity on me+at the last moment told them Rex was'nt available anymore.I never could compute-if animals were so expendable+disposable to her,why bother keeping them at all?

The hubby eventually found a clue as to our new Dane's origin.There is a K9 security unit at his place of work,which is not that far from the staff's residential area,and this is what a guy from K9 told the hubby:He saw from a distance,a man he recognised as a miner here,offload 2 dogs,the Dane and a BullTerrier on the mine grounds,then proceed on to the area of the shafts.The BullTerrier was found by a woman who works on the mine,she told him she took the starving dog home and was feeding it,and that she would most propably keep it.He tried to feed Lily on one occasion when she came close,but she was too skittish of him.He was worried about both dogs,and was delighted she found a good home also.He told the hubby he may be going to have a talk with this man who dumped his dogs so callously,but that he certainly won't be divulging who has them now.Well im just glad the other dog is being looked after well,also,and i hope the person who left them to the mercy,has realised its better to Not to get dogs in the first place if they are such a burden.He's obviously not someone who's suited to keeping animals,i think he may have been hoping that just this would happen-that these dogs would find their way to the residential area,and others would take them in.Well,it happened,BUT not before they almost starved to death.WHAT A PRIZE ASSHOLE.Well,Lily followed my Dane-thoughts right to our yard:-) at exactly the right time,so all ended well.She's a talker,btw,hilarious,she vocalises a lot,and Loudly,so funny.

I have 3 little dogs that are my best buddies. The Pom and the Peke are just happy being dogs, but Chipper, my golden Yorkiepoo, is like a little person. He actually listens to everything I say, and sometimes you can see him trying to puzzle something out. I think he understands about everything I say, and most of what I think. He knows lots of words, his favorite is "chicken", of course !
Many years ago, I used to have a gladiator Dobie, and we usually went for a walk every day. One such day, there was an injured little garter snake lying on the road. I do not like snakes, but neither did I want to leave him on the road to be run over and killed. As I stood there thinking about picking him up, my Dobie reached down, gently picked up that snake with his lips, and put him in the ditch. I just stood there and watched, amazed ! I have NO explanation for this except that Bruno could see the image in my mind, and understood what to do.
I used to have horses, and came upon an old book by an English author named Henry Blake, and it was called "Talking With Horses". He wrote about his experiences with horses communicating telepathically with each other, and also some animals that had communication with humans, like dogs knowing just when their owner was about to come home, even though it was not a scheduled arrival. It was an incredible book, and after that, I tried visualizing things, and found that some animals were responsive to it and some could care less. I think this is a very interesting subject, and hope we have more people reporting about pet telepathy.

I also have a telepathic yorkie who looks like could be a sibling to yours
He thinks he is a rottweiler and responds to my thoughts almost immediately. If I even think about feeding him he perks right up expectantly and he knows if I am going to share my food with him or not. He is also a manipulator and makes his demands known very effectively. His name is Too Cool Lucius or Loui the goo for short lol

I think we are all a bit telepathic and the modern paradigm doesn't want us to know how empowered we humans really are.

Coop dog, thank you for sharing about your Yorkie ! I am a transplanted Idaho girl (well, OLD girl, but anyway), and Chipper came from the Spokane area, so maybe not that far from you ...
I read that animals can "see" the images in our mind, as we talk to them, so I try to visualize things when I am telling him something. I knew a lady that said she stopped her dog from chasing deer by visualizing him running after the deer, and then a farmer shooting the dog when he saw him chasing the deer. She said her dog looked at her and kind of gasped,and never chased another deer after that.
I agree with you that people have more ability for this than we realize. I found it seems to work with some people, and not at all with others, but at best, I am not very good at it.

What a great thread. This is one of those that I like to slowly read and process... Very good stuff, to everyone! I've only read the first page, so this post is so as to not lose track.
I may have a few stories to share later on. Thanks everyone.

Found this on YT,just had to share-just one of the straight-up best things i've ever seen!

We have a little JackRussel/Peke mix.This little dog is such a character-he has this weird but completely wonderful need to sleep with my youngest daughter's clothing-making a little nest for himself,with the shoes+clothing.He sleeps in one of 2 places normally-either on one of our lounge couches,or on the carpet in front of our bookrack.So every morning we see what he took the night before.She's a teen,and seems to find it essential to leave her wardrobe doors open,and clothing and shoes on the floor.

So in the morning my hubby will go into the lounge to look at local news-and fin underwear/shoes/t-shirts/socks/jeans or any combination of these.When he sleeps on the carpet in front of the bookrack,he brings one shoe/sneaker,and a T-shirt,or one other garment.

So when she left for a 2-week holiday to the coast,it was an opportunity to tidy her room,and close+lock the wardrobe door,and i also closed her bedroom door-not thinking of the effect this would have on him.Everything was fine for a night or 2-then 2 mornings in a row,we found books from the lower rungs of the bookrack torn to shreds-the second one was Hamburger Hill,a great fave of the hubby-so i had to leave her wardrobe open again,to see if he would be comforted by having access to her clothing and shoes again-his "blankies"


Surprisingly,not-now,he's taken to using my l'il son's shoes for comfort.Its like he needs clothing or shoes from a child that's present in the house.I wonder what the thought process behind that is
Also he sleeps with the other dogs in the washroom now,and not alone in the lounge/by the bookrack like when my daughter is home.Thats where i found him this morning-wedged in between the Danes,with my son's sneaker under his chin


To me this is such undeniable proof of an inner emotional life in animals,especially domesticated ones.
