Smart Dog


I wrote a blog post for a client today, a pet food company, and recounted smart things that pets do. Writing the post was inspirational and it stirred a memory of mine from many years ago.

My black lab, the first dog I rescued as an adult, was a smart dog. One time we were deep woods hiking and she and my yellow lab mix were off leash. (This is something we did often and they normally stayed right with me.) This particular time, however, the black lab she got separated from me, I still don’t know how or why. I searched frantically until late in the evening. You can imagine how I was feeling, more panicked with every passing minute. 

By the time it was pitch black night, I had to face the fact that I wasn't going to find a black dog in the dark woods. Emotionally and physically exhausted, the yellow lab and I headed back to the car. During that long, painful walk to the parking lot I kept promising my dog that I'd come back first thing in the morning with a search team. 

That was the longest walk I’ve ever made, my heart hurt with every step. 

When I got back to the car, my black lab was sitting right by the car, patiently waiting for us to arrive. I guess when she couldn’t find us she figured we had to come back to the car at some point. I don't know who was happier, me, her or the yellow lab.

So what's the smartest thing your pet has ever done?
