My dog must be retarded. I couldn't even get him to lay on his back for 5 seconds without him attempting to lick his balls. This dog is like putty in his owner's hands. He's completely given his body over to him. On top of this, the dog has the balance of a young Kerri Strug.
Update: I've just learned from the owner that the dog reads and understands English at an 11th grade level (which isn't all that impressive in the landscape of our current education system), but nonetheless interesting.
