There are many dog stories with SVDs! Fr. Bernard Toepfer, SVD (+1977) served as Rector of the Sacred Heart Seminary in Leyte during Pre-Vatican II. To the seminary dog, he spoke in German. He would say “Raus!” and the dog would go to the doghouse. The seminarians heard “house”; so they would say to the dog “house!” The dog seemingly understood both German and English and would go obediently to his doghouse.
