Most dog experts, I won’t tell you all, would say my beagle, Casey has no idea what I am saying when I talk to her. She is reacting to my tone not my words. Dogs don’t understand human languages. WELL I don’t buy it. I think she understands every word I say and chooses most days to ignore or just plain disobey me.
What other explaination could there be? C’mon really? She understands perfectly, at 5 pm, When I ask “What do you want?” Her reply is always ” ruh ruh” Which everyone knows is supper in beagle. That is a total no brainer. If she didn’t understand would she answer the question? Come on dog experts try to come up with some scientific equation for that.
Another perfect example is 4:30 a.m. Every morning she comes out to the kitchen looking for breakfast. She knows she just had her thyroid pill at 4:00 and has to wait an hour before eating. I have told her this many times. Still she comes out at 4:30, sits, and gives me that look that says she is going to waste away if not served. She stares a good 10, 15 minutes, until I get uncomfortable and tell her “You still have 15 minutes, go lay down.” Are you telling me that when she gets up and goes into the other room to lay down she doesn’t understand?
