  1. Interesting post on intelligence for sure. I am always reminded of what Dr. McConnell says to those who start talking about how smart their dogs are: “I’m sorry.” It makes me laugh but it’s so true! Dogs who are easily entertained are much easier to live with!

  2. Thanks so much for including my 5 Things post! You’ve captured some intriguing posts, it seems. Now I just don’t know which to enjoy first, but I’m going to hit them all. As soon as I stop the puppy from chewing on the kitchen wall. Which, by the way, sounds exactly like a puppy chewing on a nylabone. I should have looked sooner, sigh.
