Dr. Dolittle - Talk to the Humans?
At the point in Dr. Dolittle when he's talking the the guniea pig for the first time, the guniea pig makes it quite clear that animals CANNOT understand humans. Now when Dr. Dolittle is waiting in the waiting room for the veterninarian to check out the dog, you hear the woman SCREAMING at her dog to sit, then looks over to dolittle and says "he's deaf". Then the dog makes the comment "I'm not deaf, I just don't want to hear her" so if animals can't understand HUMANS, how did this dog understand HER? They should have been consistant -- can animals understand humans, or not?

I realize commands are one thing, and so is hard of hearing, but the dog understood perfectly what the woman was saying. And the dog understood that the woman called him deaf, thats very different from commands.

Dogs can understand basic commands like sit and stay. And you usually yell at someone when they are hard of hearing so that they can understand you. The dog was just smart enough to figure that out.
