Caitlin's Intelligence Test--Part II

Today I tried two more of the suggested tests for dog intelligence:

First I tossed  a bath towel over Caitlin's head.

I had the camera already on and in my hand, but she got out from under the towel so fast that I couldn't get a picture of her under it. Here she is out.

I guess she gets a 5 for that one.

Next I put a hot dog under the chest of drawers in the bedroom far enough under that Caitlin couldn't quite reach it with her muzzle.

She did try to get it just with her muzzle at first, but quickly realized that wouldn't work and used her paws to retrieve it.

She gets a 5 for that, too, as she definitely had it out long before 60 seconds had passed.

There are 2 more tests to come. I'll try those when she wakes up from her nap.
