Jim, that's so funny *memory mode*. We had a terrier 1989-2003. He was pretty bright also. Don even had him doing police sniffer dog stuff (hide a bisquit in a room and he had to find it and sit down once he did find it). Never needed a leash, he always heeled on command. We also had to start spelling different things in front of him. The one I remember most was when we were going someplace that we couldn't take him, we avoided saying "go" or "outta here" etc, etc. We went to spelling out "b-y(e), b-y(e)" but within weeks, he had that down too. Currently our little Breezi is smart but we have been getting away with spelling
