.OMG, the funniest thing just happened. I'm on the couch with Max beside me. Jazi is on the bed asleep. The other three are playing. Now, it is a common practice when they play, they horse around on the deck, run in the doggy door, through the house and out the other doggy door to the back yard. Sometimes they play a while in the back yard before reversing the route, and sometimes they come back almost immediately.
So Joey and Sammy came tearing through the house. Lola was following, but was three or four seconds behind them. The boys were already out the back door when she got to the living room. She slowed from a run to a walk, then stopped, looking around for the boys. She didn't hear them, cause they were already outside, and she was confused. She looked at me, and I said, "They went thataway," pointing at the back door. Her ears popped up and she took off like a flash!
She understands English!
