I would just like to announce that it's true, Hank is the smartest dog alive. Within a week, Mr. Blasto, Wifey, Dar and I have trained him to shut the french doors after he comes in. Apparently, you really can be THAT LAZY. And you definitely can teach an old dog new tricks...he turned 10 a month ago, remember? And it only took him a couple of days to get him to the point where he knows just what you mean when you say "Shut Door!" The only thing left is to get him to do it immediately after he comes in, without asking him to do it. But hey, it's all gravy. If he never learned to do another thing, I am completely satisfied.
