People generally believe that there is nothing to learn from a dog or any other animal. This confirms them in their stupidity (there I wrote it).
When I look at Gizmo, I see a beautiful creature with amazing skills that I could never learn. For instance, he knows enough to survive. That is no small achievement.
He was in a cage in a shelter hours from annihilation when we stepped forward, based on a nervous call from our friend, and a bedraggled picture of Gizmo – he looked like a prisoner awoken early in the morning and about to be brought before a judge – and yet there was enough in him to save his life.
