Right. This is how we use language. The letters, spoken or written, that make up the word "Dog" become associated with, not the letters or the sound, but the animal they represent. The bell, in essence, is the dog's understanding of language. Not complex to be sure but like words the bell was a symbolic representation of something other than the bell.
