My Shephard picks up so much when I talk to my girlfriend, it seems surreal at times. We’re even at a point where we actively do not mention his name when we talk about him and he still gets what’s going on every now and then. Intelligent animals are really fun.


As I have whole conversations with my dog with expectations of an answer.


In our arrogance I think we seriously underestimate all of our fellow creatures. It’s one reason we can be so cavalier about their poor treatment.


My parrot definitely understands “bath” “nite nite” “yes/no” “gimmie a kiss” and about 5 other things. He’s like a toddler that squawks sometimes.


I firmly believe my cat understands a good amount of what I tell her.
