I taught Atlas how to fetch the paper every Friday when it’s delivered. I only had to walk him through it twice and he got it quickly, receiving a treat when he brought it to me. I congratulated myself on being a dog whisperer and praised Atlas for being so smart. However, something has changed in the last couple of weeks. Every time he sees a paper he grabs it and brings it to me. He’ll take it off of the table, counter ... even retrieve it out of the trash. Now I’m an idiot and he’s a human whisperer, and I love him even more.
