Good boy, Alex!

M came home last night with the mail in his hand. When Alex ran up to greet him in his usual frenzy of excitement, M handed him a piece of junk mail (a product announcement from one of our investment firms) and said, "Go give this to Mommy!"

Alex clenched it in his teeth and ran straight to me in the living room. M and I swelled with pride at our dog's obvious intelligence.

"Good boy, Boo!" I squealed. "Who's the smartest boy in the world?" As I reached out for my mail, Alex jumped up on the couch and proceeded to rip it to pieces.

We knew that Alex likes to rip up cardboard boxes. When I use up a box of brown sugar? I just toss the box over the counter and he takes care of it. He nearly faints from excitement if we buy new shoes because he adores those paper balls that they stuff up in the toes. Christmas morning is three solid hours of ripping and shredding ecstasy!

Well, now we know how to dispose of that pesky junk mail.

Apparently Alex doesn't think much of Fidelity Investments.

That is the cutest series of pictures ever. I love the second one, b/c he's like 'Look what I did Mommy! Praise me!'

That second one makes me laugh every time I think about it. He looks like such a lunatic!

LOL - Liz, I was going to say, "He looks a little crazed in the second picture"! I think it's just the frenzy of excitement.

What a perfect doggy ;)
