Say what?

What are you trying to tell me, One Who Feeds Us?

I love you, One Who Feeds Us, but I don't have a clue what you want from me! 

I've read that being a dog is like living your whole life among people who speak a different language and never managing to learn more than a few words of that language.  So you watch, and remember and analyze and try to anticipate what might might happen next, what you might be asked to do next.  It sounds exhausting.  Maybe that's why dogs sleep so much!?

Hey Pumpkin!
Wow, what a cutie you are. Looks like you are really listening hard. Maybe the word "treat" or "walk" is coming next!
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Could be. But sometimes we just pretend we don't know what SHE's saying.

Between the many words they learn, their incredibly highly-developed ability to read body language, and just learning the routines and habits of their people, I really don't think that life is all that confusing for them.

Great comments. Taryn, you're probably right. Darby does something funny that I think is her way of figuring things out -- when I get dressed she rushes over to me twice, once to sniff my pant legs and once to sniff my shoes. I'm guessing both give her clues about what might happen next.
