The Genius of Dogs

Reading this. The Genius of Dogs.

Author writes of an experiment where a dog is shown food, toys and a few other objects which results in the dog pressing a corresponding key on a keyboard. Shown kibble the dog presses 'food'. Shown a toy, like a stuffed animal, the dog presses 'toy'.

Shown a live hamster the dog rushed to the keyboard and pressed 'food'.

This explains a lot about Abby.

Funny, Tuxedo is shown a picture of a dog and he presses a button marked "Cat Toy."

Of course, Ozzo is about the size of a standard Cat Toy.

Ah, to be able to classify everything in our lives like a Dog would... Life would probably be so much simpler.
