    Scientists have found evidence to support what many dog owners have long believed: man’s best friend really does understand some of what we’re saying.

    Researchers in Hungary scanned the brains of dogs as they were listening to their trainer speaking to determine which parts of the brain they were using.

    They found that dogs processed words with the left hemisphere, while intonation was processed with the right hemisphere — just like humans.

    The study was published in the journal Science.

    Andics also noted that all of the dogs were awake, unrestrained and happy during the tests. “They participated voluntarily,” he said.

    I remember Redd Foxx telling about someone who told him to "Get that dumb dog out of my way!"
    To which Redd responded "How can that dog be dumb when it understands human but you can't speak dog?"
    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

    You could get an Irish setter, but you'd have to keep the liquor locked up.

    Dogs, and cats, also pretend they don't understand words... when it's to their advantage.

    Oh, cats know what you're saying. And they also talk behind your back.

    Dogs have people, cats have staff.
