Dogs just a bit smarter than we thought... 

We here at Our Take have previously written about just how smart we think dogs might be (you'll just have to trust me on this. The post was about a dog recognizing words but it seems to have gotten lost somewhere in the archive). The obvious intelligence of Red (an inhabitant of the Battersea Home for Dogs) was, however, outside of even our estimation. According to the BBC workers at the home had been finding many dogs loose and the place a bit of a wreck when they arrived in the morning. In an attempt to figure out what was going on they installed cameras. When they did so they found that Red had been letting himself out of his cage at night (using teeth and tongue) and then releasing some of his friends. Red now has many offers of adoption (link via OxBlog).
