A couple decades ago, I brought home a black dog, half golden retriever, half black Lab. I named him Lupo.
Lupo was AMAZING. This was the smartest dog I ever had. My sweet departed Fenris, bless his heart, was going to be just as smart, but he died at age 11. Lupo lived 'til almost 15.
I brought my future wife over to my house one night, and when she was getting ready to go, I turned to Lupo and told him, "Go get HER shoes." and emphasized the word her. He'd been getting MY shoes for years, and that one word change was all it took for him to immediately grasp what I wanted. I was frankly, shocked, when he did exactly that. He went and got her shoes.
I am getting another half-lab-half-golden. He'll be coming home September 10th.
