Yes, they certainly know "special" words! Unless I'm about to give them a treat, I have to say "the t-word" instead of "treat" and use "stroll" instead of "walk"! ~ Lori ~
Yes, our Leezza surely understands the word,"walk". About five o'clock each afternoon she starts to bug me about going on the daily walk. She get so excited that I can hardly restrain her.
I read this thread yesterday. Last night, Duke was nuzzled up close as possible to me on his back, legs stretched upward, sound asleep. I rubbed his belly, but he didn't move. I whispered "biscuit" and his legs jerked, then relaxed. I whispered "biscuit" again and again with the exact same leg jerks. LOL - I thought sure he'd wake up . . . I let him dream. :p
