My child likes to pretend to bark like a dog when we are out in public

She doesn’t speak - just barks and bowls like a dog to every question I ask her. She’s 35 months old and says that she is not a baby or a human child but a dog. She is able to speak English fluently except for this recent I am a dog episode. :(

Imagine all that energy and creativity. Let her be and she will grow tired of it. I believe that we are looking at a smart child here. Don’t worry about it.:)

hmm, did you recently exposed her to some "doggy" shows or videos like Puppy Dog :p
