First up, news about identical twin puppies in South Africa. Rare, but how rare? Hard to tell apparently, but a cool story nonetheless. (I don’t know a thing about birthin’ babies, but I learned a lot through these stories about delivering puppies.)
Next up, words and dogs. We anipal peeps have always known that our furbaby dogs know what we’re saying to them. Now there’s proof that they do. Our dog pals understand our words. For the study, 13 dogs had to lie motionless in an MRI machine. One at a time, of course. What? How’d they do that?
Could you imagine Stuart lying still for eight minutes? Well, yes, actually I could. LOL.

Happy Dog News Day.
I hope the puppies will not share the fate of the horses… good luck to the twins! Easy understands every word I’m sure… specially the things what are NOT for his ears … it’s sometimes even a little scary LOL
The only South African identical twins that I know are Wallace and Samuel.
We heard that same story about the MRI!! I guess it proves that Edgar knows what I’m saying, he just has selective listening!
They were interesting articles. My Tricky is deaf but understands sign language perfectly. ❤
Riley and Tessie understand what we tell them But they choose to hear what they want to hear! BOL!!!!
Hope Stuarts peeps are safe and dry during the ruff weather heading your way.
Batten down the hatches. Will be thinking of you.
There is no way that these three would be able to stay still for any length of time unless they are sleeping.
Actually, McDuff sits absolutely still when I get his breakfast and dinner ready, or as I call it, ‘time to feed the tapeworm.’ He has his eyes trained intently on me the entire time and doesn’t make a sound! It’s the cutest thing.
His hearing is no longer so sharp, but he knows and reads me like a book!
