My dogs understand only one word of English and that is "sit". However, they do understand some Chinese and some baby talk. When we talk to babies we normally repeat the word twice. Don't ask me why that is but that's the way Chinese talk to little tots. "Tong" means pain and Wawa understands "tong-tong". When I ask him, "Where are you tong-tong?" he will relax his legs and let you see where his stitches are. Told you he's a baby.
