She knows when I say "get up" as seen in the video as well as "sit", "food", "water", "chicken" (canned food), "ride" (she loves the car), "cuddle"/"hugs" (comes and lays on my shoulder), and "I love you"/"give me kisses" (nudges my nose), and when I say "bed time"/"night, night" she knows I'm going to sleep. She is starting to learn "lay down" and "sit" combined with "no" (stay).
Despite her name Gabby, she was pretty quiet in her younger years. As she has grown older she has developed quite the vocabulary and her vocalizations give me a good indication of what she is talking about.
Tonight she had pushed her food plate under the door stop so I was trying to get her to stop to move it for her and said, "stop eating, let me move your plate" and she made a sound that sounded exactly like "no", looked at me and went back to taking care of it herself.
