9. How lame. What is the purpose of a fake phone call when they could just

blurt out "treat" or "ball" or "walk" or "grandma" or "beach"?
All the humans are doing is teasing their dogs and confusing them. Don't trigger a dog unless you're prepared to follow up.

4. When I do get on the phone

Talking with an actual person, our dogs go nuts because they think I'm talking to someone at the door. It was really bad when I was working at home.

Gotta love 'em!

6. Great! And why we have to spell around them. Now if we knew as much dog talk as they know

our language.

7. I was thinking the same thing

My wife and I can pick up on the "tone" of our dog's vocalization (excited, aggressive, pleading, etc.) but we have never distinguished any distinct "words" from the barks, of course. It would be interesting to know if there are word equivalents in dog "language."

10. Knowing my dog's "voice".

One of my dogs has a very particular way of asking me to fill up his water bowl. It's unmistakable, so being the good mom, I fill it up for him.
