Learn how your dog thinks!

There's a new website called Dognition.com. It's an application (software) that let's you play fun games with your dog but it's actually testing them to see how they think. The ad says " Dognition lets you discover how your dog thinks so you two can connect on a whole new level. This goes beyond IQ ó itís like getting a "dog's-eye view" of your best friend's world."

I thought it sounded like fun so I spent the $39 for the basic package and now I'm gonna see how Henry thinks! I'll let you know how it goes but you might want to google it yourselves. There have been some interesting articles about it recently. All I know for sure is that these guys are going to make a freakin MINT!!! I think it'll be fun to try.

I know Dave - the NYTimes even had an article about it (attached). I am going to do some of it this weekend and see how it goes. I'll post my progress and my thoughts on the forum for anyone who's interested. Maybe you could try it too! I would love to hear your thoughts about it! Hope you're feeling pretty good these days. All my best to you as always.

yeah Nancy , let us know how it goes. I might be tempted, not right now though. I'm hanging in there. Fatique is an issue, and my leg is bothering me, as I 've developed a limp, and that is causing a problem compensating. Hey, life marches on. Thanks.
