It’s Official: My Dog Is Smarter Than I Am

Along with Citizen Kane and Schindler’s List, Jurassic Park is universally recognized as one of the greatest movies of all time.  Despite what anyone else might tell you, the stars of the movie are the Velociraptors.  Like many dinosaurs, raptors are strong and agile, but what sets them apart is their intelligence.  As
Along with Citizen Kane and Schindler’s List, Jurassic Park is universally recognized as one of the greatest movies of all time.  Despite what anyone else might tell you, the stars of the movie are the Velociraptors.  Like many dinosaurs, raptors are strong and agile, but what sets them apart is their intelligence.  As the humans find out in the movie, Velociraptors are quite adept at learning.Why do I bring this up, you ask?  Well, please watch the following video of Eko playing Three Card Monty and then say I’m crazy for wondering whether he might have a little raptor blood in him. 
 Hope everyone enjoy’s the weekend.  I’ll be spending mine looking over my shoulder to make sure Eko isn’t going to depose me as leader of this pack! 

Comments for It’s Official: My Dog Is Smarter Than I Am

  1. This made me SMILE out loud 🙂

    I have an honest suspicion that my dogs are way smarter than some people I know, lol…

    But in this experiment, I think Eko was cheating: he was most likely using his extraordinary sense of smell… (about 10 million times better than ours, as they are able to smell a teaspoon of sugar diluted in an Olympic swimming pool!)

    Try it again with a simple piece of crumpled paper (preferably odorless, lol) and we’ll talk again… 😉

  3. Dogs are a devious creatures, I’m sure mine is up to something but they too smart for us to figure it out before it’s too late.
    Watch your back Will, Eko is huge!

    Bear has me trained!

  5. Dude. Ekos sense of smell is 10,000 times superior to you mere humans. That may be part of the explanation. Still a great video. However, Ekos sense of smell had nothing to do with uncanny card skill as he drew three aces to a showing 18 in his blackjack take-down of Las Vegas. Eko does not believe in games of chance.

  6. I have fallen so deeply in love with Eko! Can I be his God Mother? And if you ever need a sitter in California I’ll do it at no charge! lol

  7. Eko is SUCH a smart overachiever! This may be my favorite video of all time! Mom has been trying to teach me this trick, with only 2 cups and she only switches positions 1 time. I usually grab a cup at random and run around the house with it. Most of the time I forget there was a treat in the game at all!! I’m pathetic!

    Love and licks,
    Cupcake

    I’m not sure of your IQ Will, but I would be watching my back if I were you! 🙂

  9. Do you know what a ‘Ringer’ is Will? They pretend they don’t know the game then shake you down for all your money…Clever move Eko.

  10. Ay! I am smarter that a 5th grade master. 😉

  11. Remind me when I see you and Ekco in Vegas surrounded by people on a sidewalk to walk the other way! Great vid.

  12. I think Eko could smell the treat, but MAYBE he is too smart. Ha! Have a great weekend!
