A day in the life of Tess

 There is a danger of teaching a smart dog to problem solve and offer behavior! 

Tess turns 1 year old in about a week, and while she's definitely calming down, there are afternoons (like this one) where she has been ignored for most of several days (I had an exam this morning and had to put in some heavy duty studying).  To get my attention she runs through all her tricks and then starts offering new ones.  Most of the time the lack of attention is the lack of a reward, but every once in a while she discovers something so self rewarding that I have to take action....
