My dog can spell!?

Apparently, our dog has learned to spell W-A-L-K.

For a long time we've been using it as a codeword, discussing whether to take her for a walk with us or not - spelling it out, W-A-L-K, so she doesn't hear the word "walk" which she recognises and gets ridiculously excited about.

And, apparently, we've now used it long enough that she's... learned the meaning. My husband spelled it out this morning and dog went, boom!, jumping around the hallway, looking like she knew full well what the discussion was about.

Labradors' brain.
