Did we get lucky or what?!

Now that you know how Annabelle came to adopt us, let me tell you that I could not have asked for a better first dog.  We decided to crate train her until we knew how she would be with the other 4-legged kids in our house (cats).  As soon as we set up the crate on that first evening, she went right in it on her own and laid down.  She looked at us as if to say, what took you so long?  We thought well, who knows what else she knows.  So we started throwing commands at her.  Turns out she knew: sit, stay, shake and down.  We have managed to add to that, despite ourselves really.  Now she also knows: up, couch, toy, and off.  She really is smarter than the rest of us.  Which means that she picks and chooses when she wants to remember any of these commands.
