The horse from this story was a force to be reckoned with! He was so smart, he mastered how to open all the gates. A special lock had to be added to the bottom of the door to prevent him from getting out. One time, somebody forgot to lock it, and the horse freed himself along with the rest of the horses in the stables!

There was a Corgi dog that always stole food from a smaller Chihuahua it lived with. To balance their meals, the owners started putting the smaller dog's food on top of a table which the Corgi, due to his special stumpy anatomy, couldn't reach. But the food yet again started to disappear, even from the new spot. The owners kept a watchful eye and as it turned out, the Corgi would jump on top of a smaller chair, pulling it out from the table, and from that point on it was easy to reach the food. The amazing thing is the way he used to hide his tracks by pushing the chair back into its place so no one would suspect anything!

One cold day, a man's dog tricked him into believing he needed to go for a walk. However, as soon as the man got up from his bed and left the room, the dog bolted for his spot on the bed, making himself cozy under the warm covers, deciding to disregard his owner's presence. Who could blame him, we all love a nice, hot bed when it's cold outside!

A family had a Great Dane that got angry at them for giving away his favorite toy. A 3-year-old member of the family was visiting and while she was playing with the dog on the floor, she managed to snatch his plush toy. The dog looked at his owners, then at the little girl, and so back and forth several times in pure astonishment. Ultimately, when he realized he was getting no response from the people in the room, he bopped the child on the head with his paw. She started to cry and naturally dropped his toy, which he proceeded to pick up and elegantly marched away to his bed.
