But, My Animals Can't Talk

A cowboy riding through the west comes upon a ranch house. The rancher and his dog are sitting on the porch. The cowboy exchanges greetings with the rancher and says, "That's a mighty fine dog you got there. Mind if I talk to him?"
Rancher says, "Mister, dogs can't talk."
Cowboy looks at the dog and says, "Howdy, fella, Is this your master?"
Dog says "Yep."
Cowboy asks "How does he treat you?"
Dog says "Real fine. He plays with me, takes me hunting, and feeds me real well."

The rancher can't believe his ears.

The cowboy looks toward the barn and sees the rancher's horse and says, "Mind if I talk to your horse?"
The rancher, a little less sure of himself says, "Mister, horses can't talk."
Cowboy goes over to the horse and says, "Is this your owner?" Horse says, "Yep."
Cowboy asks, "How does he treat you?"
Horse replies, "Very well, he brushes me every day, takes me for a run through the woods, and keeps me in the barn to protect me from the elements."

The rancher is now totally unnerved and in shock. The cowboy looks over into the field and says, "Mind if I talk to your sheep?"
The rancher frantically protests, "Mister, them sheep ain't nothing but liars!"
