Normally I wouldn't suggest that the household dog is very bright, I've seen the snake with more complex thought processes, and the snake has an 8-bit processor. Eat sleep poop. Period.
But the dog HAS learned that when Daddy makes That Sound, and rolls over towards mom, he should probably leave the bed. If he tries to shut his eyes REAL hard and pretend that things aren't happening, he has a 43% chance of getting a surprise leg launching him into near-Earth orbit. So nowadays he just leaves the area and waits for things to be finished.
But there is a new trick now. He has learned that when dad makes that OTHER sound, things are wrapping up, and it will soon be safe to lay down between us again. He even pops up to check on mom to make sure that she's ok. "Are you ok mom? I had a mean dog do that to ME once, it sucked, I hope you're ok... do you need to hold me?"
Ok, he might be slightly smarter than the snake. Or perhaps he just hears better... what with having actual EARS and all.
