We were out for our afternoon stroll and saw a word we often hear but don’t really understand. Can you help us with our vocabulary test?
Dr. Stanley Coren, a psychologist who has studied canine intelligence, says the average dog understands 165 words. The brightest know 250. We know all the important ones making Hu-Dad spell certain words when we are close. But this one word has us very stumped.
Hu-Dad says this often. We’re racing through the house and jumping off the furniture and he says it. We’re howling when he is on the phone and he says it. We drag him after a squirrel and he says it.
Never mind. We’ve got it. It means “Good dog. Do that again.”
See how smart we are!
