My niece, Rebecca, had been training her dog, Cooder. “But he’s so slow!” she ranted. “He’s getting it, but he’s so slow!”
Dan, another guy at animal rescue, chimed in. “My dog’s smart. He can sit, stay, roll over, speak, and even shake – with either paw you ask for.” Then Dan sauntered off.
“What did you think of that?” we asked Bek.
“Well,” she said, “I didn’t tell him Cooder was working on colors and numbers.”
