I posted this on Facebook last night... But Baxter is now trying to reward himself. He'll intentionally do something he's not supposed to - but nothing major. Just rummaging through my work bag, or some such thing that will get him a simple, "Leave it" command. But here's the great thing! Once I give the command and he listens, I start to praise him, and then I notice that he's walked over to the treats and it staring at me as though to say, "Well? I did what you said. Now give me my freaking cookie."
He also knows when it's time for bed - he'll walk over to the gate that we have blocking the stairs, look back at us, paw at the gate, look back at us...
At my parents' house? If the water dish is empty, he walks over to the sink and waits for someone to notice.
Sometimes it terrifies me that he's able to connect the dots on certain situations.
