Dogs are amazing.  And Marley is the most amazing listening dog we’ve ever had.  He hangs on to every word we say, listening for  key phonic sounds like go, walk, treat.  These words animate his existence!

But every morning early he starts his day with the call for “breakfast,” the favorite two-syllable word in his vocabulary.  As soon as  that word’s sound waves break across the room, he decodes and breaks into his breakfast dance.
