Sometimes Mommy spells words in front of us because she doesn't want us to know what she's talking about. Scout knows what she's spelling. He taught me that p-l-a-y spells "Let's go outside!" And b-a-l-l spells "Let's play ball!"
But I'm a very smart dog. I can spell, too.
I know that s-c-h-o-o-l spells "Bandit has to get in his crate so Mommy and Scout can go have an adventure."
