Dogs can’t speak, but do they think our words?

Shower thought for today.

I walked outside and the dog I was minding went looking for the ball immediately. I didn’t say anything, but I did wonder, did the dog hear the word ‘ball’ in its head?

Do dogs have the same circuit humans have, where it has an auditory buffer? I don’t know. I can’t find the answer to the question, but I do know of several dogs that really do seem to know how to talk and it has changed how I view the internal world of dogs.
