I was at the vet this morning (where I spent $307 thanks Rigby) and in the waiting room trying to manage Rigby. In the corner was a woman speaking to her dog in German. How silly I thought, she doesn't expect him to understand that does she?
Then I caught myself: who says dogs speak English? I smiled at myself knowing of course that I'm often muttering something to the dog in the full expectation that he understands at least part of it. There was another point at issue. Maybe the woman knew better - the dog was a German Shepherd after all.
