My dog is smarter than me.
That’s not a high bar to clear, I’ll grant you, but I have recently discovered that Lucy, our 10-month-old yellow Lab, is pretty much able to trick me into doing exactly what she wants me to do — every time.
Lucy has always been a very alert, curious and attentive puppy. When she looks out the window, for example, she’s not just gazing at the world passing by, she’s intently observing the activities of birds and squirrels. She very early on figured out that if one of those critters passed out of view, she could go to another room to get a look.
