While some dogs have learned to play fetch or perform tricks, others have figured out how to use the doorbells of their home. Many pooches all over the country are now taking doorbell matters into their very own paws. Meanwhile, their parents are discovering a new way to help them keep their fur babies safe.One of these dogs is the two-and-a-half-year-old rescue named Lucy from Harrisburg, North Carolina. Brandon, Lucy’s owner, described the pup as one part Lab, one part Black Mouth Cur, and one part human. Lucy is an adventurous pooch who routinely lets herself out whenever she needs to use the bathroom. This, however, presents a challenge for her and her dad.Once Lucy is outside, how would she return to the safety of their home? Soon, Brandon got the answer to this question when his wife heard a chime alert from their doorbell. Upon opening the front door, Brandon’s wife found Lucy, who was patiently waiting all alone.Brandon’s wife thought that someone was playing them a trick. So, she decided to check the doorbell’s video quickly. That was when she discovered her dog’s newest trick. As it turns out, Lucy jumped up and activated the doorbell using her nose and paws.According to Brandon, his wife was initially in a state of concern. However, thanks to the video, it turned into a state of relief and amusement. The couple thought that Lucy’s newest trick came in pretty handy, so they decided to embrace it. Brandon said that Lucy is the smartest and most resourceful pooch that they have ever had.Lucy is not the only dog who learned how to use the doorbell for them to communicate with their humans. Indeed, dogs are some of the smartest animals on the planet. With their keen observation, they can do almost anything they want.Credit: Ring
So you want to know more about me, eh? Well, I am a Canadian, husband, and father of two young men.
I would say boys but they are not really “boys” anymore. They are 19 and 17. But they will always be my little ones. :-)
And, of course, we also have a dog. He is an Affenpinscher. Also affectionately known as a Monkey Dog.
His name is Monty. Yes, it is after Monty Python as he is a funny, crazy character.
Dogs have always been a part of my life. My parents started and owned a Dog and Cat boarding kennel just 20 minutes north of Victoria, on Vancouver Island, in British Columbia.
I started this website as a way to give back to the dog community. Which is full of many extraordinary dogs and owners doing many different and exciting things.
I hope you come back often to enjoy the wondrous stories I find.
Thank You for your time and interest.
