Be Careful What You Say -- Your Dog May Be Listening!

We're cat people, with no dog experience, but *Katie rescued a senior border collie and asked us to take her in, so we've had to learn a little about dogs, too.

We expected Holly to understand "out" and "sit" but imagine our surprise, after a few months, when Bob announced he was going to "feed the birds" and Holly ran for the door. A few days later, Bob mentioned that it was time to "empty the compost." Again Holly ran for the door. Yesterday, Bob was in the kitchen making a snack. He asked, "Want some?" Holly jumped up and ran for the kitchen.

Dogs understand more than most of us realize, and border collies are especially good at vocabulary, but we never expected her to pick up whole phrases on her own. WOW! Dogs are AMAZING!
