My vocabulary

4 months oldYou probably think vocabulary means words, right? Well, that's what I'm putting here, but we doggies define the world with smells. Words are just your way of communicating with us, and we play along.

Even though I'm still a puppy, my vocabulary of smells is already much bigger than I could list here, even if there were words you could understand for them all. We increase our vocabulary of smells every time we go on walkies or go to a new place, or meet new persons or anipals, or when you eat new foods or get new things. In fact, our vocabulary of smells increases every time the wind blows - that's why we like to sniff it!

But all that won't mean much to you persons and most pets can't read, so I'm just putting here all my person words. Some of these I know every single time my person says them, and some I am still working on - having them all together in a handy spot will help remind me to keep practicing them all.

Now that I've grown up a bit, I look a lot different than my baby pics on this page!

Some doggies know LOTS more person words than me, but I think I'm doing pretty good. How many of these do you know?

6 months old
  1. Backyard
  2. Back - walk backwards
  3. Bad dog - I HATE this one! Luckily I don't hear it very often
  4. Bed
  5. Brekkies
  6. Come - I need to work harder on this one
  7. Cookie - a treat, especially for being a good doggie and doing a word right
  8. Dance
  9. Drop it
  10. Fetch
  11. Get down - as in off of persons or things I've climbed onto when I shouldn't have
  12. Get it - like fetch, but for catching spiders or chasing away squirrels
  13. Go Go Go! - run superfast
  14. Go for a ride - in the car
  15. Go home - my person says this on walkies so I can find my way if I ever make a Great Escape
  16. Go outside - for me, this means pee or poop, either outside or in my litterbox
  17. Good girl - one of my favorites!
  18. Hi!
  19. Hush - stop barking
  20. Jump
  21. Kisses - when I give them, not you
  22. Leave it
  23. Lie down
  24. Msfubi - this is what my part-time roomie Boo KittyKat goes by now
  25. No - everyone knows this one, and nobody likes it
  26. Roll over - my person's arm flies around for this one, and looks silly
  27. Sing - I like to sing Woo-woo-wooooo
  28. Sit
  29. Speak - like sing but louder WOO-WOO-WOOOF
  30. Stay
  31. Steppie - lift my paw to put on my walkies harness, or when my feets are tangled in my leash.. some doggies call it "shake"
  32. Stretch - I don't really want to learn this one, but my person's cat would do it when told, so I guess I should be able to too
  33. Supper
  34. Take a bow - perfected! see demo
  35. Toy
  36. Trixie - that's me!
  37. Uh-oh - like no, but more for after I did something naughty (when it's discovered)
  38. Walkies - another favorite!
  39. Waters - the drinky kind
  40. What's that? - investigate something
Wow, that's a lot of words for a little pup like me! I don't know all of them all the time yet, but I'm working on it.
