I learned a new word

The Genius of Dogs: How Dogs Are Smarter than You Think - Brian Hare, Vanessa Woods

Mental processing is Cognition.

this is my second new word today.  The first had to do with training your dog using the Color Designation method in What Color Is Your Dog?, or the training rainbow, otherwise known as trainbow.

 

learning new things is fun.
