He plays the piano, opens the mailbox & retrieves mail, answers & retrieves a ringing telephone, dances, does distant commands, bows, sits pretty, does sends/go outs, jumps hoops over my back, helps “extinguish fires!” (See videos). Also, retrieved and presented the dumbbell from the day I brought him home at 9 weeks!
