Which Dog is Smarter?

barks between beagles, beaverdamusa.com“What is that noise?”

“It’s that construction crew again.”

“What time is it?”

“Six forty-seven, a.m.”

“Are there not laws against this?”

“Apparently not.”

“If I don’t get a full night’s rest, I’ll be cranky all day.”

“What are you talking about? All you do all day is sleep, anyway.”

“Well, then Miss Smarty Pants, I’ll sleep cranky!”

“Would you look at that –”

“No you don’t.”

“I do a little.”

“You wanna chew with me?”

“Yeah, as soon as I figure out how to get down from up here.”
