    DefaultFreckles Communicates with Duke

    Duke is always impressing me with his understanding of complicated commands but last night it was Freckles turn. Duke had followed his mom when she went to take a shower and Freckles stayed with me in the den watching TV.
    After the show was over I turned off the TV. This always brings the boys as they know it's time to go out before bed time. Freckles popped up but Duke was somewhere in the bedroom or bathroom. I waited a few seconds to see if Duke would appear and when he didn't I told Freckles to "go get Duke".
    He trotted off and I thought he had just retired to this spot by the bed but before I could stand up he came trotting back in with Duke following and they both went to the back door to be let out.
    I can understand Freckles knowing the word "Duke, but how did he communicate with Duke that it was time to go out.
    They continue to amaze me with their intelligence.

    They understand each other and have their own body language. If it's time to eat, time to go out or come in or go to bed, and one is missing, I say "where's ___" . Someone will go after the dawdler and bring him/her in with a nudge or just a look. Freckles speaks the same language.

    Well I don't know why you're doubting them, but I always knew Freckles and Duke were that clever.
