Don't you wish your pet could understand everything you say? Not just "sit" and "stay," but things like "the thunder won't hurt you, it's just sound."

Our dog is going to have some pretty big surgery today to remove a mass on her face. She was so scared at the vet yesterday, and it must hurt - and we felt so terrible that we couldn't make her understand that the vet is here to help, and that she's going to feel so much better tomorrow. It kinda hurts your heart.
