View Full Version : saying dog in foreign languages

I was wondering if anyone knew how to say the word "dog" or "I love my dog" in other languages besides English. I think that it would be interesting to see.

D'OH, should have written with the other language I know too, Dutch (since I live in Belgium now) and am not sure if Lut will see this thread, or C.C.'s Mom...

Anyhow... here we go:


Ik hou van mijn hond= I love my dog

Dog= C„o
I love my dog= eu amo meu c„o

Dog= cane
I love my dog= amo il mio cane

In Japanese the word for dog is "Inu" I don't know what the wording for the phrase would be though because they have different words for love depending on the type of love.

was just looking through the activities and noticed this thread. I know it is very very old but thought it was cute. Would like to add the italian to here.

Dog (masculine) - cane (pronounced - con A)
Dog (feminine) - cagna (pronounced - con ya)

I love my dog (masculine) - mi voglio bene il mio cane
I love my dog (feminine) - mi voglio bene la mia cagna

08-08-2013, 12:11 PM
I love my dog (masculine) - mi voglio bene il mio cane
I love my dog (feminine) - mi voglio bene la mia cagna

That's fun, in that if someone said that, you would then know whether it was a boy dog or girl dog!

Strange that in Spanish it's perro, whether it's a girl or a boy. In Danish it's "hund" like in German.

Ich lebin mine Futzschmakel - Norwegian Pig Latin :rolleyes: :D
