This dog knows who's boss. No, like, the dog actually knows who's boss. He told us so.

Sure, he doesn't technically talk, but this is close enough! We're not asking for a dog that is capable of delivering a commencement address; we just want one that can communicate with us beyond barking and general enthusiasm for a walk or food.

Apparently this dog spends a lot of time in the sun, because he has lotion. Either that, or he's very big on moisturization. This dog knows that dry skin is no bueno, and that is almost as amazing as his nodding abilities.

One thing this dog does have us confused about: At one point he says he doesn't want dinner and refuses a cookie. What's that all about?
