Our 2nd dog, Xanie (named by the rescue dog worker after Xanax, the anti-anxiety medicine) has never seemed terribly bright, at least as dogs go. But perhaps we’ve underestimated the most hedonistic dog in North America.
When Primary Dog (aka wishbone) is resting comfortably on the couch, she’ll coax him to get off to play. But as soon as he gets down she jumps up and takes his spot. She does everything except say, “Psych!” Wishbone just looks confused.
BTW, she is not expressing any shame in the photo below. We’re not sure what she was doing.
She sometimes sleeps like this. The poor thing is missing a few teeth.
