My pup Geordie was such a smart guy that I constantly had to come up with games and puzzles to keep him occupied. One thing he really liked was flashcards. He learned the alphabet, familiar words and he even did math. Toby turned out to be more of an active guy preferring to play chase or fetch, so we didn’t use flashcards much after Geordie left.
This weekend, the weather was too rainy to play outside, so I decided to bring out the flashcards. One game Geordie and I would play was Boy/Girl. I would ask him if someone he knew was a boy or a girl, and he would have to touch the correct card to get a treat. It turns out that Toby is really good at this game too – except that when I ask him if mommy is a boy or a girl, he insists I am a boy. Geordie did too. Both dogs are adamant that I am a boy. It makes me wonder: what do they know that I don’t (and do I need to notify the DMV)?
Duh, of course I know things you don’t!
Might you be having a new addition in the near future? If so, please consider giving him or her a cozy crocheted blanket as a “Welcome to the Family” gift! Each piece is very warm and is made of super soft, brushed yarn – perfect against baby’s delicate skin.
Now is a particularly good time to order domestic goods. Inventory is already in the US and ready to ship.
