Oh, ya! Same here with the talking. DH challenged me one day when I was talking to them, but they understand every thing I say and some things I spell....if I spell Chelsea takes off outside to hide under the bench. LOL! So I showed him how much they understand. He doesn't say it anymore...and especially since Chelsea will talk back to me. Missy doesn/t....she talks to Chelsea but not us.
They literally have kept us sane through this pandemic and we say that all the time...we know we couldn't have done this without them.
Love All Life, Thank You For Posting! :)
