My dog is an Accountant

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

If you think your dog can’t count, try putting 3 treats in your pocket and only giving him 2.

Not only can our dog count, we’re pretty sure he’s an accountant. He keeps careful inventory of the Scooby Snacks, the chipmunk and squirrel population and exactly how many bratwurst remain on the grill.  He’s impeccably mannered, and has his timing thoughtfully planned out: when we sit down to eat, he hops into his bed and crosses his paws.  Usually this is accompanied by a small sigh, or a “look away.”  He does this knowing full well that, at the end of the meal, he will get a bite of something mixed in with his kibbles.  All he wants is a little of what we’re having as he is, after all, a pack animal.  He’s learned by experience, and with 10+ years of it, this dog has our habits down pat.
