In the process of teaching Isis “speak!” which would mean to her ‘bark!” on cue we got a bit side tracked.
I started to reinforce any sound she would make. Oddly enough she started to make a growly sound with her mouth closed and she lay down. That was so cute that I decided to capture that behavior and turned into: ” Isis: are you a tiger?”
“Tiger” now means : down position and a very low growl.

The other day she offered more. I immediately took advantage of it and named it
“Motor Cycle” now means: sit and …well, sound like a biker revving up his engine!
