Teach 'em when the're young!

Gus is a quick learner. We take him for a walk every morning and stop to pick up the paper on the way back. Yesterday he grabbed the paper before I could get it and he carried it back to the house. This morning I took him out to get him to do it again.

Way to go! Gus appears to be a smart little guy! Border Collies can be trained to a lot of amazing things.

If I can train him to fetch me a beverage while I'm mowing, then he's a keeper. :lol:
