Over the last couple days we have come to a startling discovery. Not only does Sammy not know his own name, but apparently he believes his name is Better. Yep.
Ever since we got him, we have had a hard time getting him to respond to Sammy, other than when he is just curious as to what we are saying. He likes to watch people talk and try to figure out what is going on, so he generally looks when you say "Sammy," but only if he isn't too busy. Sammy knows his full name, Samerson Wegener and more importantly knows that means he is in trouble. He doesn't know many words, I'll give you that, but his name? Surely over the past four and a half months we have had him, he would know his name! Anyway, by some weird chance Erik said better and his popped right up! Like my dog, Max, growing up would jump to "Max."
We have tested it since then, and now I truly think that he is "Better." Sometimes I think that he is just messing with us, and he is just smarter than all of us. Perhaps he gets a kick out of it. But then, more times than not, now I'm not sure what to think. Anyway, I took a short little video while he was chowing down on his candy cane. (This is not the orginal candy cane, this is a new one. He takes rawhides down pretty fast.)
