I had a lady that would constantly yell/talk at her dog as though it was a person. And in spanish sometimes. She'd be walking it and you could hear her long before you saw her, just constantly jabbering away, scolding him, making fun of him, praising him, random other stuff.
Theres nothing wrong with all that on a toned down level.
My room mate and I used to talk about how she probably used to talk to her husband/kids like that and now they are gone so she got dogs to yell at to fill the void.
The spanish part was only weird because the lady was very, very classy white person-esque and it was only when the dog was doing something wrong. She would tell it to shut up or stop in spanish followed by various insults and swear words.
