I also know how to "Sit."
I'm not stupid.
Very often, I hear other words when I'm in this position, like "Stay." and "Wait."
I'm good at "Wait." I don't know why, I just am.
Lately, my stay-at-home human has found more useful things to teach me from the blogs she's been reading.
A new word I've almost mastered is "Ready?"
She uses it when she needs to give me nasty pills, "Ready? Ahhhhh...open mouth."
Or when I'm having a bath and she's about to wash my head. *Brrrr* Can anyone EVER really be ready for that?
She uses it when she wants to clean the mud off my toes after a walk.
And when it's time to put my jammies on, "Ready? Right paw. Left paw."
I must admit it's A Very Useful Word to know and we ALL like it.
My humans also have 2 new favourite words -
"Leave it!" [sometimes used in conjunction with "STOP!"]
They use it when I wonder what they're eating and put my nose in their dinner.
When I bark at them, the cats, or nothing in particular.
When I throw a tantrum [ME? A tantrum? PLEASE!].
When I'm showing Mr Thumper who's boss.
There isn't a day that goes by when I don't hear these words, so I'm going to be very good at it soon.
