World's Smartest Dog


Recommended Posts

So in three months, Quinn will be turning six.  He is a mature Border Collie, the smartest dog breed.  Every care and affection is lavished on him.  So what does he do last night?  Eat a small SOS pad.  I figured I must have accidentally thrown it out but just now he passed the evidence in his stool.  He appears no worse for the wear, full of energy, with a good appetite. The vet said he should be ok at this point, but to keep an eye on him.  

 

He is five, going on idiot. :rolleyes:

Well,my Gilly turned 13 this past Christmas. She has had lots of health problems the last year (I've mentioned them before) that included lack of appetite & vomiting. About 6 months ago when I was cleaning out her cage at work (she was going everyday when she was really bad off) I found a shriveled, bile stained, plush squeaky ball that had obviously been vomited up at some point during the week?!?!? Lord only knows why she'd eat something like that. So I came home & threw them all away even though they are faves of all my dogs especially the Little B@st@rd, LeeRoy Brown (see pix below with said balls).

 

Fast forward to last Tuesday. Gilly has been doing well with most of her issues but silly me forgot to take the trash I'd bagged up to the curb when I left for work- it included nasty food stuff from cleaning out the fridge the night before. I came home to find most of the trash gone- eaten!- by my 13y, Gilly. You know, the dog in kidney failure with Inflammatory bowel disease! Did I mention that the trash included 8 whole, nasty, hot, buffalo wings- with the bones?! Also several Styrofoam meat trays complete with little pad to soak up all the bloody juice, and much, much, more :blink:

 

So after much vomiting & pain she was off to her internal medicine specialist for x-rays. I told her if she dies over something so stupid I was gonna kill her <_< At one point, while in the middle of the office, she started retching & I was comforting her when my coworkers all gasped & screamed- Ugh! What's THAT!?!? I looked down & there it was...ANOTHER! shriveled, bile stained, plush squeaky ball! O.M.G. I have no idea where that came from- Lee must have a stash under the bed or something.

 

So after a life of occasional snagging of unauthorized actual foodstuff Gilly has turned into a toy goat and apparently must be supervised with toys...oh yeah & the rotten tree roots I caught her digging up & EATING last night. :rolleyes:

Gotta love those smart dogs... Especially when they have their moments where you want to turn and ask them "what in the world were you thinking?!?!?!"

 

I really wanted to wring Kipp's neck after he tried snacking on the rat bait. I told him that for a smart dog, that was a really dumb thing to do.

Just a month ago Ouzo ate a baby sock, while doing the zoomies around the house, under my husband's eyes. 24 hrs later he puked it back out. Intact, just covered with a lovely brown colored coat of slime. Idiot!

I think it was last summer, maybe the summer before...The dogs and I had come back from our walk and we were on the porch wiping wet grassy feet. First Texi, then Georgi. Well, as wiping Georgi's I saw Texi following a little green frog hopping around the porch. Out of the corner of my eye I saw him dart a glance at me and gobble that frog up. I yelled "What did you do that for??" His expression immediately said "I don't know, but I don't feel so good." Within a minute he threw it up whole and ALIVE AND WELL! Poor dog looked so confused. Georgia looked disgusted with him.

Like last year around this time when for the first and only time ever, Odin ate an entire foxtail head during the 1 minute my back was turned addressing a work crew I was managing. Cause you know, those are so darn palatable. And smart to eat.

:lol: :lol: . Ok, this is too much :lol: :lol:

How old of a woodchuck would a sheepdog upchuck

if a sheepdog could upchuck a woodchuck.

Three day old she would, all that she could

for the sheepdog could upchuck a woodchuck.

 

And inspired by another topic that was too soon closed for me to include this great piece of my poetry:

 

How many sheep should sheepdog dog, if a sheepdog should dog sheep?

Dog sheep he should when shep is asleep if a sheepdog should dog sheep.

 

Yes, I know .... :lol:

OMG. That's crazy! You've gotta wonder what the frog was thinking!

We had Jude for about 3 months and he had gotten into the habit of being able to sniff around our food when eating while watching a movie, but not being able to eat the food. He just lays by and sniffs. Well, the wife and I had gotten sushi take out and were watching a movie when all of a sudden... jude gobbled down the entire ball of wasabi and didn't even flinch. My instant reaction... this is going to be messy.

 

About 5 hours later, nothing had happened and we had to make a run to the store, but didn't want to leave jude by himself. So we loaded up into the new car and started out. On the way home... we smelled something... Only to find Jude had silently returned his dinner and his wasabi onto the back seat.

In our work at the project we have to rehab many different indigenous canids....ha! I can been very scientific sometimes!

 

Anyway- we had a wolf pup that we raised, couldn't be released so she was fairly socialized.

 

She was being fed and somehow slipped through two tall gates and into the headquaters cabin went straight to a back bedroom and vomited dead deer road kill on my bed.

 

She was whining like she thought their might be pups in that bed to feed.

 

Very pleased with herself afterwards...

 

But DG the smell.
