Now I know that while dogs and other animals are intelligent, they probably aren't going to learn English enough to follow a complete conversation. But you would think that a 12 year old dog would have learned what "it's raining" means by now! He came into the room and "told" me that he had to go out. Ok, fine. hehehehe (it's POURING out right now) We get to the back door and I told him that it was raining. I do this every time it's raining out. Every time. I open the door and he just stands there. Doesn't move, just stands there with a "wha????" look on his face. He finally decides that he has to go bad enough to endure it and goes out. Meanwhile, I practically have to shove the other one out the door as she will hold it when it's raining. And of course when he came back in I got the "why did you make me stand out there longer than necessary? It's RAINING" look. Dufus.
