    My dogs know “mommy” and “daddy” which is how my fiance and I refer to each other when talking to our dogs! (Which we do quite often) They know the obvious ones, like “ball” and “treat” They’ve recently learned “grandma” and “grandpa” and the names of their doggy cousins.  We are obsessed with our dogs…haha.

    My first dog Gus is super smart and knows a lot of words like food, bed, vet, bath, eat, come, toys, treat, outside, stay, go for a ride and some others. He always seems to understand “sick” when it comes to me. I recently had my wisdom teeth cut out and FH would tell Gus that “mommy is sick” so he would come over and lay on the floor next to the recliner. He’d also come walk around and check on me and would go get FH when I woke up. 

    Here he is:

    Our other dog, Hugo, he’s as sweet as can be, but is dumb as dirt. I don’t think that he knows his own name yet, but he does understand “outside”, and that’s about it. He’s cute though, so I guess that makes up for it.

    We adopted a lab mix last july that I swear is smarter than us at times. We got one of those electronic dog doors, which use a little battery operated key to unlock. One didn’t work when we got it so we sent itback for a replacement. In the meantime my 11 year mini poodle couldn’t go in or out on his own, so as a joke I told the lab to “go take poodle out”. Darned if the lab didn’t escort the poodle to the door, wait until the door was unlocked and the poodle ent outsiden then unlocked it again when he was ready to come back in.
