Smart enough for loopholes

Filed under: Dogs — Miriam @ 11:25 am

So my computer is only slightly fixed. I purchased an adaptor that keeps the computer alive but will not charge the battery.  And I’m trying to catch up on two weeks of two grad school classes.  So I will be back soon… I hope.

In the meantime I decided to share an adorable example of my poodle’s intelligence.  Cooper isn’t allowed on couches.  But while I was studying in my large room he decided that this cart was not a couch and therefore fair game. I turned the laptop slightly and caught him in the act with the webcam.

Then I informed him that a cart was still furniture. He probably used the couch to get up there anyways.



  1. Haha! That is so awesome! I remember when my parent’s dog could see and we were camping in our tent trailer somewhere, we came back and found that she was standing on the table and wasn’t quite sure how to get off. It was pretty funny.

  2. Oh let him stay! If he was smart enough to figure that out he should get some reward. 🙂

  3. Poor Coop. He is too smart for his own good.
