Discoe differentiates between "platz" (which means lay down where you are) and "Go and platz." (which conversely means go to your place, which includes an area rug, her bed, etc, and lay down). She also somehow understands "I don't want that." to mean that she's brought me the wrong thing, and will take the toy she has and exchange it for a different one.

That's the only example that I can think of off the top of my head. I'm sure I do speak to her in sentences, but it's almost unconscious for me when I do. A pretty good deal of her training in the house is colloquial... I'm just so used to her doing what she's told that it doesn't seem to matter HOW I tell
