No "smart dog" stories, but a brief memory of one of my favorite dogs, and damn near the stupidest creature on the face of the earth... would play "fetch the imaginary stick" for DAYS and never catch on...

Windy was about the sweetest tempered German Shepherd I've ever seen... her one big fault was a near psychotic fear of thunder. Well, one night, I'd been drinking pretty heavily and had pretty much barely managed to pass out in my own bed. It'd been ugly all day, but I wasn't figuring on rain...

Some time late at night, all hell broke loose in the skies. I didn't notice for obvious reasons... however, Windy most certainly did. Now, while stupid, she was by no means a SMALL dog... and panic motivated her to even higher levels. Damn dog broke my door in, and dove under the sheets to deposit a VERY cold nose in some very personal locations.

I'm not sure who was more startled... me by the sudden rude awakening, or the poor dog from the combination of the thunderstorm and my sudden yells...
