Funny Sammy

1 - Last week we did an unintentional experiment with Sammy.  He always seems to know when I am home.  I was on the phone with my husband and the windows and doors to the house were open.  When I spoke to Sammy on the phone I was told he seemed very concerned for my well being.  When I opened up the garage door there was no reaction.  When I pulled the car into the driveway, and the crunched up driveway made a noise is when I heard barking in stereo.  So we think it isn't the garage door opening, but the car in the driveway that alerts Sammy.

2 - We get a write-up about Sammy from the pet sitters.  They hired a helper who met him for the first time.  Somehow, he conveyed to her that it would be okay for her to turn on the bathtub faucet for him to get a drink.  Repeatedly.  How can an animal with no English language capabilities train a stranger to do that?!?!  :)

Corgis are super smart. They train you if you aren't careful. I had two as a kid and they pretty much trained me to be their child servant. My two cats have currently trained me to wake up on command in the morning by using their paws to open my bedroom door and then letting it slam shut over and over until I get up. All forms of locks are defeated by them.

I get a kick out of watching Corgi Mind Powers work on my husband! Since you warned my about Corgi Mind Powers, I am on alert for any use. My husband, however, does not believe in CMP, and so Ein's mind powers make him do whatever Ein wants.
