My friends, Tinky, Sissy, and Jonsey, over at 4urpets have invited anydog to list the words they know so here are some of mine:
Down: I lay all the way down, most of the time.
Sit: The word speaks for itself, and I USUALLY do it without mom and dad even having to repeat it. Too many times.
Roll over: There must be a treat in the room before I do this.
Come: I always get lots of pats when I get there.
Stay: I’ve done this for up to 5 minutes. Mom was very proud of me. I was kinda bored.
Go around: Mom points at something, says “go around” and I go around it. It works well if there is a cat on one side of the bed and I can’t get up.
Bow: Didn’t want to, but there were treats. I bow with my hinney in the air (see the picture) and my chest on the floor with my front legs out in front. I usually use as a time for a good real streach.
Heel: Pretty good at this if nothing interesting is going on.
Front: Go around mom and sit down in front of her facing her. Ok, there’s usually a treat there.
What’s Roadkill look like?: I lay on my back and play dead. Why doesn’t she just point a finger gun at me and say “Bang” like normal people?
Walkies: I’m ready! NOW!
You want LIVER?: No I don’t. Mom always puts me in the bath tub when she says that.
Want to go out?: What does mom think all that jumping and whining was about?
Breakfast/dinner: OH YES!!!
Shake: I put my paw in mom’s hand.
