Ax, get on your chair – goes to couch and curls up on it. Ax, find your ball – runs outside or to last known place of ball, returns with ball. Ax, get in the car – finds toy, goes to stand beside car door. Ax, get out from under my feet when I’m cooking – goes to sit under table.

Ruby, SIT – wags tail, gaping smile, eyes say, “What?” Ruby, COME – runs over, tail wagging, gaping smile, eyes say, “Huh?” Ruby, OUT – wags tail, gaping smile, eyes say, “Huh?” Ruby, GET OUT OF THE WAY! – wags tail, gaping smile, eyes say, “I’m cute.”
