Our pets know lots of words. When I ask Pippen the Wonder Dog if she needs to go outside or go potty, our cat Bella runs for the door, too. And they all know what num nums are.

Yup, I think they can understand a lot of what we say, but aren't interested in most of it.

One episode of Homer Simpson had, for a short period, captions for what the dog was hearing. It went something like, "Blah blah blah blah blah food blah blah blah walk blah blah blah play blah blah blah."

Latté understands lots...her favorites are "butter", "bed" and "let's go!"

Why oh why do I insist on watching Animal Police? I get so upset when I see the conditions of the animals they take into custody. Specially the horses. For the most part there is a happy ending for most of the animals. But for some, it is too late. And I get so upset.

My kids know the word Scooby snacks. They run to the closet door when we say that word so we say SS when we speak about them.

My Pearl and Sophie are extremely gifted in the snacking department. The mere rustle of a potato chip bag will bring them in from out in the yard, charging in at you like a herd of wildebeasts. NO words necessary.

Last night we had a thunderstorm. Teddy heard the rumblings from off in the distance. He started to run for the bathroom where there is no window and can't see the lightening. He froze in the middle of the bedroom floor when the big clap came. Spike had to get up and pick him up and put him under the blanket. Even after the storm was over he refused to come out until this morning. Poor baby. I hate to think of him being so scared.

We are so impressed with him lately. He has always run to my door and barked his head off when anyone in my little cove where my apartment is located would come in or go out. So lately instead of just calling him and telling him to stop, I have been getting up and making him go back to his little rug. Now he just stays on his rug and gives out a little bark. He gets a reward and plenty of praise for that. I just love this little dog to death.

Sort of like when a pet hears the sound of the can opener. No words necessary. Who knew a bag of chips or a can opener could talk?

Mine can hear me unwrapping butter or taking the lid off the butter. Not only that, they can tell if it's me or Shrek...they don't show up for Shrek.
