Wink OK, I know they don't understand english, but...

I was just in the kitchen washing dishes and I look over to see Wade in his crate, chewing on his bedding. I gave him a stern look and said, "Hey! Find something more appropriate to chew on, please." He immediately stood up, walked out of his crate, picked up his bully stick, walked back into his crate, and started chewing on the bully stick instead. Amazing!

That happened to me today, too!

Many days I take Cookie in the car with me to pick up my son from school. I let her in on the passenger side and go around to my side. So today, she jumped in as usual, but then jumped over onto my seat (which she rarely does). My window happened to be down, and I said, "Hey, get back over on your side!" She jumped right back over! My voice wasn't urgent or loud, just a conversational (but laughing) tone.

That's great! He knows when he chews on the bully he doesn't get reprimanded. Smart cookie. He will soon learn what is okay and what is not, but it's a trial while he's learning.

I totally think they understand English. My dog decided to try going off and exploring the rest of the house and I didn't want him to, so I said aloud "Don't go in there, stay in here please," and he stopped, turned around, and instead continued playing in the room I was in. He knows somehow. In English. Just like when he knows I'm talking about him to someone else.

Ha ha.. One of my nicknames for Panda is "Mr. Poodles". Sometimes when he starts doing something he's not supposed to, I just say, "Order in the court, Mr. Poodles!" and its funny when he looks at me like, "Really? Ok". and stops what he's doing.

Who told you poodles don't understand English? I'm quite certain Beau understands both the body and spoken varieties, at least when it has anything to do with food.

How many words do you have to spell, rather than say? T-R-E-A-T, D-I-N-N-E-R, W-A-L-K . . . the list goes on.

I beg to differ, Vegas speaks human fluently. <3 Vienna on the other hand hears noise and 'Food'

Little Anderson totally speaks fluent human! And he is often disgusted that I don't speak fluent poodle.

My neighbour was slack jawed when I asked my dogs to "Keep it on the blanket, please!" and they moved their raw meaty bones back to the middle of the washable throw put down for them. Of course she wasn't around for the 100 previous repetitions, starting with me moving the bones for them...!

But I was walking the other day, burbling softly in conversation, and used the word "scrummy" - Sophy, trotting 50 yards ahead, swivelled her ears, stopped to check me out, then went on. So not only do they understand, but those Papillon ears could probably hear a whisper about treats broadcast from another planet!

Walter has develped a new thing lately where every time he goes out to play he has to take a toy out with him. When he is ready to come in and I open the door I will ask him, where is your toy and he will run out in the yard and get in and bring it in with him. I love the look he gets on his face as if to say, look how smart I am.
