There is a part of your heart not alive until a bulldog has entered your life.

Thank you for all the love, fun and teachings
I love all the examples of how smart they all are. Daisy likes to anticipate which command I'm going to make her do in order to earn the treat in my hand. When I open the jar she'll sit but if I don't give it to her right then she will lay down, then roll over, then hop in her bed. One of them has to be right. She certainly knows let's go to bed and sometimes tries to get me to go before I'm ready. She probably think's I'm the stupid one not doing what she told me.

Dexter always just sits patiently and waits for his treat. But I can be sitting on the couch and tell him to come snuggle and he knows that's key for get on the couch with my momma. He also knows that his blanket is supposed to be up there before he does. The blanket us green and we tell him to get on the green (even on the bed) and he'll move where he's all the way on his blanket
I got a smart one. When is treat time, she does the sitting, the speaking (she barks), giving hand, and its funny when I say " give me your hand" she does it, then I say "not that one the other one" and she gives the other one, and I say " the other one" than she growls but still does it!! Lol but if there is not treat in my hand she doesn't do anything at all. little brat! Also when I say "mimi time" she goes to her bed and lay down, if she has no water she barks at her plate, sometimes she brings it to the water fountain. If the door is open and I see her going outside I say "itzy you ain't going anywhere" then she stays. When she's done something bad I get mad right? Then she comes giggling his butt and tryies to kiss me. Lol. These dogs are amazing!
Both of my girls know how to count, at least to three, and I think further. You see, I give them three treats for being good and going poo or pee in the right spot. They sit, and I usually give them the treats one at a time. They remain sitting for the third treat, after which they turn away to leave. I've noticed that they will turn away if I give them two treats at once, followed by the third treat by itself. They will also turn away if I give them all three treats at the same time. They are counting their treats, and know when they've received the allotted three. Here's the real funny part. If one of them does a double header, pooing and peeing back to back, she will sit there and wait for the second set of treats. She has already received her first three treats, but knows that she has three more coming. And, like with the first set of three, she will count the second set and only turn away once she has received the sixth treat. So, she is either counting to three twice, or counting to six. I think that's pretty smart.
Mine can tell time. Breakfast time and supper time.
No but he will do all his tricks when I pull out the bag of green beans from the freezer before I even ask. Its quite funny.
My 5 y/o fatso is so smart if we even spell something he doesn't like like walk, medicine, or ear drops he will go into his crate lol
