That dog is practically a Phi Beta Kappa

Why, that dog is practically a Phi Beta Kappa. She can sit up and beg, and she can give her paw — I don’t say she will, but she can.

— Dorothy Parker

Ha! This certainly describes Eden: too smart for her own good and often unmotivated to display the prowess of her intellect (unless there’s food or a Frisbee involved). Do you have a dog like that in your home?

Happy Friday! Hope there are lots of good walks in your weekend forecast.

  1. Silas will work for its own sake, to a certain extent. We’ve also done a lot of contingent behaviors over the years, so he’ll sit or go to his crate or some such whenever he wants anything from us. I don’t mind “paying” his wages to work, but I don’t like bribes. None of that “I’ll only sit if I know there’s a cookie in your hand this second” business.
