Dogs have been called “Man’s best friend” (or women’s), but they are much more than that. So often we forget how intelligent they are. One thinks they don’t speak our language, but so often they understand exactly what we are saying. It may be that they hear a word or two and associate it with an activity that they have done before. Who really knows, but our dog can jump up and be ready to go even if we are spelling the words. Maybe it is in the tone of voice.
Dogs have been known throughout the world as “wild dogs”, “working dogs” and “domestic dogs”. They are able to be highly trained and often perform in circus shows and other events.
The downside is that when we find a dog with great traits, intelligence and temperament, they can be over-bred and inter-bred, ending up with many health issues. Which has been the case with Golden Retrievers that are probably the best companion dog in the world, with a temperament of “gold”. We always suggest families with small children consider the Golden Retriever when choosing a pet.
Meet our dog, Gracie…age 13 and loves everybody.
Having said all that, I have a question. Are you lacking a dance partner? Maybe this lady in the video below would rather have a good, intelligent, obedient dog as a dance partner any day. It appears that she found one…even if he does have four legs.
A dog show in Moscow…give it a moment to start.
