On National Geographic station they are running a fabulous program on "genius dogs. I already knew my dogs were smart but this is unbelievable! "Donny the Doberman" arranges his toys deliberately in certain patterns - for example.. Toys in a triangle patterns Toys with all the frogs in one stack, all the bears in one stack. Toys with one straight line next to each other. He was filmed while doing all these arrangements and it was so funny. He was really planning and thinking what he was doing. Donny was as rescue. The next day after he allowed his new owner to hold him the very first time, he arranged his toys with the arm around the other - like hugging. The owner finally found a scientist to observe him. She was shocked and said she still could not believe this, but it was true. Below is info on the program - I hope they play it again - if you happen to see it advertised you might enjoy it. Dog Genius [TV-PG Ratings N/A] Friday, February 1, 2008, at 07P We share the planet with 400 million dogs : toy dogs, working dogs, champion dogs and artistic dogs; dogs who know what to do in an emergency; and dogs who know their way around a couch. For over 12,000 years, they've been our essential survival aids and our constant companions. But how smart are dogs? Most dog owners would say they're geniuses and point to their pup as living proof. National Geographic joins scientists and dog trainers to explore the dog smarts in surprising new ways, unlocking the truth about man's best friend.
