My dog really enjoys watching televison, especially when other dogs, or horses or cows are in the show.

I used to spell in front of my Golden if I didn't want her to get excited. Her vocabulary included:
Ball
Bone
Cookie
Bird
Look
Let's go
Out

She became stone deaf in her elder years and we didn't even realize it for about a year because she responded to our body language so well.

My old dog could lip read and spell. He loved to go for "W - A - L - K" 's.

The can definitely understand English. I inheritied a mutt from a Latin ex-girlfriend. She (the dog) does not respond to commands in English. I have to say "vamos" (forgive me I don't know the Spanish spelling) to get her to come to the door for a walk, "asiento" to get her to sit, and "veni a ca" to get her to come. She does not understand or respond to the English equivalents.

LOL...my labbies can! If I DARE say "W-A-L-K" it's all over, I have two tasmanian devils on my hands. The same is true if I say "bone" or "peanut butter." My chocolate also talks to me. I can tell if he's lost a toy, he'll sit right by me and bark if I don't immediately pay attention to him. I'll ask him where his ball is and he'll walk run to where the ball went out of his reach. Smart dog.
