I was reading Patricia McConnell's blog The Other End of the Leash and her most recent post sports this video asking "Do Dogs Inherently Understand Pointing Gestures?” My own expericnce has been very close to what this clip shows. How about you?
PS The "eyes closed" bit cracks me up. I know Winnie for sure knows that if she wants to do something she shouldn't do... she just needs to wait till I'm not looking. It's not just my theory anymore!
