Sep. 9: Talented canines

We have two dogs, Scout and Casey. Scout is very smart and knows a lot of tricks. She occasionally performs them. The things at which she is most talented:

  • Sitting
  • Staying
  • Rolling over
  • Barking incessantly at visitors
  • Completely ignoring me
  • Remembering that Grandma Mary is the treat queen

Casey is not as much of a show-off and has slowly revealed her talents over the two years she's been with us. She can:

  • Sit
  • Beg
  • Roll over
  • Bark incessantly at a noise three blocks away
  • Act ferocious to dogs six times her size
  • Be unnecessarily mean to Scout
  • Stick to me like glue

I love our dogs. They can be a pain in the arse sometimes, but they're also great companions for us, and they're really good with the kids. But they cannot speak English, like these dogs can:

And they're not quite as insane (or hilarious) as this one:

And yet, we love them anyway.
