Everyone knows that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Beyond the standard repertoire—sit, stay, shake, fetch, roll over—it’s natural to assume Rover is kind of limited to being little more than a very furry, very cuddly best friend. Well, such an assumption is woefully incorrect.
As it turns out it, your dog is basically a bona fide superhero. From UV vision to the seer-like ability to predict earthquakes, most dogs have inherent skills that, truthfully, are more like magical powers. So, sure, you might not be able to teach an old dog new tricks. But given these incredible things they can do, you won’t have to.
