I usually feed stray dogs. Yesterday, as I was entering my house, I saw that a stray dog was just behind me. It had probably followed me home. I stopped for a moment, looked into its eyes and asked it verbally, “Do you need anything to eat? ” As though it actually understood my words, it started wagging its tail and came near me. I told it firmly to stop right there and wait and that I would look up something for it to eat. He calmly and obediently sat down near my door. Within minutes I returned with some food. He hungrily gobbled it all up. I felt so content after feeding it.
Dogs do understand and speak out but only to those who know how to listen.
