7. Dogs are freaking smart!
Intelligence varies based on the kind of strain you get, however, overall, dogs are a few of the most intuitive animals around. One of my dogs is a mini schnauzer, and that cracks me up with just how smart he is. I’ve a couple of tennis balls from my desk (which I don’t use for tennis; I only toss em in the air whenever I’m concentrating), and he knows this. So, what he does is go on small reconnaissance missions in my area. If I’m in there, he still pretends to look outside my window or inspect my bed, while simultaneously stealing a few glances in my tennis balls (which usually lay haphazardly on the ground ). Then, he’ll leave, but just after making a mental checklist of where the balls are. Later in the afternoon, or it may even be a few days later, I’ll go downstairs and see him happily chewing at a few of my tennis balls, a mischievous look in his eye as he gazes up at me. It is hilarious each time! Seems like he needs to have made an honorary Navy Seal…
