    Question How many words does your bully know?

    I read that a dog can learn about 160-175 words. So I was thinking about the words Herman knows now so that I don't use up all the word slots in his brain with unnecessary things. Here are the words he knows now:

    dinner
    muscle massage
    booty scratch
    towel time
    cheeeeeeese
    good boy treat
    blueberry
    outside?
    poo poo
    pee pee
    breakfast (i'm not sure if he knows this one)
    mommy
    daddy
    Fin Diesel! (that's my fish and when I yell Fin Diesel to my fish, he runs over because he's jealous)
    high five
    gimme five
    sit
    get in your bed


    Here are words I wish he knew (I think he knows them but fakes "Huh? What ya mean?")

    NO
    STOP
    Get Down!
    Come!
    Herman
    Leave it!
    Go to your room!
    Clean up your toys (this is just wishful thinking)


    That's all I can think of now. I seems he has capacity to learn many more.

    Stig knows, school, dinner, din-din, breakfast, brecky, cheese, treat, peepee (to go outside), and walk. For tricks he knows high-five, down, sit, paw, stay, crawl and kiss.

    I don't know if Punkin understands anything but sit and paw. He usually follows Stiggy's excited energy when it's mealtime.

    HRH knows and hates the word Outside! If she could tuck her tail between her legs, that word would have her doing it. Her whole demeanor changes if we say it in conversation. And if it's actually because we want to send her to that wicked place she does everything in her power to avoid it, including trying to shrink into the couch and becoming 42# of Dead Weight.

    She also knows bye bye, nite nite, Wait, Sit (when mom insists), and No.
    Ball and Toy are interchangeable and saying either she will head strait to her toy bin if the favorite of the day isn't in sight.

    All the basic commands... sit/stay/wait/off/down/no/leave it/come/eyes

    Stuff she loves... ball/play/walk/treat/eat

    Stuff she HATES... ride/car/bye-byes

    Gunny
    Toy
    Daddy
    Mommy
    Denali (always comes running for that one - since not a chance in hell he is gonna miss whatever she might me getting)
    Drop it
    Dinner
    Cheeeeeese
    Car
    Walk
    Up
    Bed
    No (rarely respond, but will look and acknowledge that he knows he should but doesn't give a rats rear)

    A handful more I can't think of.
