nice story...I find my Australian Shepherds remarkable at times...and at other times, unremarkable.

Cover her eyes, make the search longer until finially you are covering acres. Thats just how I did it. Now nieghborhood kids ask if they can hide from otto when we are on walks. So much so that now our walks are at 430 am.
I never thought about covering her eyes. I seen a show where they were training dogs to sniff out cancer. They would put a petri dish with cancer cells in a tupperware contain and mix it up with other containers. When the dog sniffed the cancer one they would praise it. I was thinking about using this technique.

This is why i have cats and miss my reptile pets of the past; that dog probably pees on the tombstone daily. I think to assume loyalty over a grudge is premature; of course, i am a cat owner.

Kill a cat owner in the presence of their cat, leave them there, check back in two days, and i guarantee the cat will have peed on them at least one time, gotta love their spirit.

A cat is just a slipper minus my foot. They serve no purpose and the little bastards are just rude.

Scratch that comment ! You are not a cat owner, you are the cat's staff.
Tell me that isn't so.

You have it wrong, kill a cat's owner (I mean staff) in front of the cat and the cat won't give a sh!t until feeding time.

And then he will look to the killer and beg to be fed.

Dogs care about their people. Cats care about sleeping and eating and that's about it.

I have both dogs and cats, wouldn't have it any other way and I love 'em all, but cats don't compare to dogs as far as I am concerned.
