I’ve stated numerous times that Comang is not very bright. And while the desire to please is ever-present, we’ve only been able to teach him a handful of tricks due to his dim-wittedness.
So far, Comang knows: sit, stay, down, jump, and high-five.
Yes, you read that correctly. Our dog knows how to high-five. It was one of the first tricks that J taught him. See for yourself:
It is precisely for this reason that I immediately fell in love with the following video, which depicts a man trying to teach his baby to high-five and the dog jumping in to do it himself, as if to say, “Sigh, let the EXPERT show you how it’s done!”
I can sooo see Comang doing this when the baby comes!
P.S. — I almost forgot that Comang also knows the command “Wolverines!” J taught him this after watching the move Red Dawn (aka one of the most bad-ass movies of the 1980s) — all we do is raise up one arm and shout “Wolverines!” and Comang lifts one of his front paws to emulate. I must get this on video one day!
