This Special Dog Plays Cards And Other Family Games
This four-year-old German shepherd named Anya, a very special dog, adores playing family games with her owners during the COVID19 lockdown.
When playing Jenga, or any other game, this canine uses her teeth to delicately get the pieces to play pretty much any exemplary family game.
“Anya never neglects to astound us,” says Lori Knoble, who uses treats to permit the canine to pick which square she needs in Tic-Tac-Toe.
The 55-year-old entrepreneur and her significant other, John Knoble, got Anya from a nearby breeder when she was 12 weeks old.
“From the earliest starting point, Anya was unbelievably useful and brilliant,” said Lori. “She would help take off garments from the dryer, present to us the T.V. remote, and everything.”
In April, during the quarantine period, the Cleveland couple searched for things to keep them busy and amused. They found among their belongings the stacking block game called Jenga. They thought playing this game would help them pass the time while sheltering at home. So, they set up the wooden squares and carefully commenced playing.
Lori and John noticed Anya carefully observing them playing Jenga. Much to the couple’s surprise, Anya wanted to play the game with them, and they paused to allow her to participate. The couple observed Anya carefully remove a Jenga piece with her mouth, mimicking her owner’s actions.
On her own, Anya figured out how to remove wooden pieces while keeping the pinnacle upstanding—all so casually.
Lori and John knew they needed to record Anya playing Jenga. They made a video demonstrating Anya snatching a free square and hauling it out tenderly with her teeth, setting it on the footstool, and hanging tight for her adversary to go.
Jenga was the first of numerous games they introduced to the cunning canine. The couple recorded a video showing the many games and moves Anya plays, and they’re all just absolutely hysterical.
You will observe Anya’s skills and Tic-Tac-Toe, Sticks, Cards, and she even makes time to play with the family cat.
The couple said, “she has genuinely been a gift to us, and we try to share her happy, astonishing tricks with the world to spread love and delight.”
