We have two dogs.  Tanzie is quite bright, skittish, and a little stand-offish with strangers.  Skippy Squirrelbane is sweet, enthusiastic, and never met a stranger.  He is, however, NOT bright.  At all.

Every night they get a milk bone before the LMM and I sit down for our evening togetherness (we read, and then watch the weather, unless there's a baseball game on.  Very exciting.)

The dogs know that they get their bone before we go into the sitting room.  But sometimes we forget the bones.  To ensure that we do NOT forget the bones, they behave cooperatively, sitting side by side and blocking the doorway.  Not sure if it's intentional, but it is effective.  It would not be easy to get past them without paying the bone toll!

Skippy seems just smart enough then, no?
