    I've always held dogs are much smarter then we currently recognize. Not only are they able to communicate with their own kind..the can communicate on a reasonable level to other animals..like humans. I read some theories that have even pointed out, that humans (in our present form), were able to thrive because of canines. They would bark out alerts when predators threatened human young. Anyway..great article.

    It's a Border Collie; they're especially smart and willing to learn.

    Yep.

    But I think most dogs have exceptional intelligence.

    Must be smarter than you. It's "THAN" not "then," and "they" not "the."

    I wonder if that dogs owner beat it like another dog owner I know?

    Why do you find it so amazing that a dog can talK? All dogs talk. It's up to you to understand what is being said.

    Cats may know more words than dogs, but they will never let you know that.
