Won Over By Reality

BRIGHTON New York—(Weekly Hubris)—5/6/2013—Last week in this space, we learned a little about Men’s Brains vs Women’s Brains. This week, we get some insight into one particularly gifted dog’s brain and, incidentally, that of its dance companion.
I have lived with a dog and, on occasion, taken care of any number of dogs for out-of-town neighbors and friends. I love being around dogs and have an appreciation for the time and effort it takes for a dog truly to train its human companion.
Most dogs are drilled in simple tricks such as sitting, “speaking,” shaking paws or fetching. On the other end of that spectrum is the impressive display of higher learning—both human and canine—preserved on this video (sent in by Weekly Hubris reader Jean Nolan).
If you, yourselves, come across an entertaining link or video, I’d be interested in seeing it, and sharing it with my readers at Weekly Hubris. Please contact me at: Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.)
