Don't forget we're taking Fred to the vets later, dear! Shhh- don't mention the vets- He understands every word we say! Don't be so silly! Look at him- he looks as if he understands? I understand a lot more than I let on, mate!
Fortunately for him, he does understand.
Maybe they’re taking him to the vet’s to get “tutored!”
My dogs like going to the vet - there’s so many interesting smells in the waiting room. And sometimes its just to pick up a sackful of DoggyDins. Maybe Fred thinks its that sort of visit.
Or maybe he likes having his temperature measured:-o
I know how Fred feels - really! My husband is always telling other Chinese people to watch what they say around me because I might not be able to speak; but there are few things that I don’t understand.
After this Friday I hope we’re done with the vet’s for a while, we have to take in the cat we adopted in January to get fixed.
We used to have Sheltie when I was a kid, who always, always knew when we were taking him to the vet, no matter what we did to hide it. You could go a whole day without mentioning the ‘V’ word, bring along a frisbee, so he’d think we were headed for the park, give him his favorite treat, you name it.
Nothing worked. Every single time, he had to dragged out to the car.
I didn’t know you were so good at being so inscrutible when disaster is about to strike. Poor guy, the vet will be good to you, I promise.
Fred does understand the word ‘V E T ’ !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I believe dogs know so much more than we realize! Fred probably likes going to the vet, he knows he’ll get lots of attention and treats. ;)
