How much do dogs understand?

I have written before about our dog, Birdie, and how she stayed with me and licked my face when I fell off a ladder as I was cutting a large limb from a water maple. I severely injured my back, probably a major cause of the problem I suffer from today. When I regained consciousness, she was hovering, trying to revive me. Birdie was agitated and only calmed when Janice appeared on the scene and gave me first aid.

This article is a continuation of the theme of how dogs can sense distress in humans and often come to the rescue.
