I swear mine can spell. We started talking about foxes and every time she heard the word she went insane, so we started spelling it and we even spelled several words also so we could keep her in the dark. Well that worked exactly twice, now she can spell fox. I know it has to do with our body language and other hints we give off, but it's fun to think she spells.

Hey pat! That's funny! It's like trying to spell in front of a little kid! Why does the word fox make her upset? Does she know what a fox is? And now she knows how to spell it too! I think that is really cool! You should make a video of her doing that! Maybe you could make some money or put her on Youtube! I wish I had a video cam so I could tape my Luna saying Mama! My cat Luna says Mama very clearly and it freaks people out when they hear him say it! When he does it when I'm on the phone people think it's a baby saying it! And they know there's no baby in my house!

Yes our dog knows all about the fox, this is the one animal she is allowed to chase from the ranch. She's a hound and loves to chase whatever she can encourage to run, most of the time she is not allowed to do this but foxes are ok

I think our dog can spell too. Whenever he heard the word out he would start barking and running to the door. it would drive me insane so then i started spelling the word so he wouldnt go crazy, well soon enough when I spelled the work he started barking and going nuts...LOL Weird isnt it?
