Mia is really easy to get excited... Ridiculously easy. And excited Mia turns into a screaming blur. Summer is pretty excitable too. If mia is excited, Summer figures she should be excited.

As such, these words are not spoken without Mia going crazy.

- Do you
-Wanna/want to
- Need to
- Go
- dog food/food
- cookie
- kitty
- mouse
- squirrel
-Scout (my old chinchilla's name)
-tennis ball
- Where's Summer (she runs and tackles summer)
-Where's your Sister (same)
- potty
- outside
- bathroom
-free (their release word. They don't need to actually be told to stay or anything. If you just shout out 'free!' they'll run)
-Ready. Get set. Go!!! (I say that when I throw the ball and it's translated)
- Beau and Rose

It's probably a sign that I talk to my dogs too much.

Oh, boy, I'm bound to forget at least one. Let's see-

Feed the dog
Deef the dog (we started sying "Deef" instead of "Feed", but he's caught on)
Go for a you know what
Top Dog
Can you pick that up for me?
Daddy/Mommy's home

I think that's it.

LOL Me, too. I get strange looks if I say, "Excuse me" to Caleb in a store because people think I'm talking to them. My husband has actually started asking me if I'm talking to the dog or him.

Cricket is really easy to excite. When I say something that she wants she'll run in circles and jump on and off the couch like "yes! yes! that's it!"

- Do you
- Want to/need to
- Out
- Walk
- W.A.L.K
- Dinner
- Are you hungry?
- Wanna work?
- Wanna play?
- Wanna go somewhere do something?
- GET IT (this one makes her go tearing off into the woods even if there's nothing there)
- Bunny
- Squirrel

And for some reason, the question "Are you a dog?" makes her stare at me and cock her head at crazy angles any time I say it. Maybe she's smarter than I think and is pondering the existentialism.

Treat, "din din" (dinner), potty (and basically any question. If you use the tone of voice you use to ask a question, it doesn't matter what you say, Chloe thinks it means "need to go potty" or "wanna treat?" hahaha

The usual - walk, treat, brush, dinner, ready. "wanna do something?" means lets go do a short training session, which she loves.

She also knows that "dog" refers to her, so if I say anything about "the dog" she comes running like, "you rang?"

Not a word, but she gets excited when she sees me emptying the trash or getting ready to do laundry, because that means she gets to come outside to the dumpster or laundry room with me...and going anywhere is EXCITING!! LOL.

In the mornings it is "do you want to go feed the horse?" as it means they can race down to the barn. Remmy spins around in circles all the way to the door. If I just say do you want to go out, I usually just get a look and they don't move. Any other time of the day it is enough to ask them if they want to go out.

I tease them sometimes and start with "Do you" and stop, then add a little more. Of course, they know what go for a walk means or do you want a cookie?

Ferret/Ren/Ella/Harley/Marlee. Any of those sends her into a panic checking who's missing.

Pretty much everything that has been mentioned. We can't really talk without her being excited
Ella: 3 year old female ferret
Nacho: ~8 year old male ferret
Apollo: 5 year old male ferret
Summer: 5 year old female ferret

Anytime I say "go with" or "go for," it doesn't matter what I follow it with, Loki knows she's going somewhere.
