The dog with a 340 word vocabulary...

If I show her how many treats I am putting in my pocket and reward her with one at a time she always knows when she has had them all. On the other hand, a 340 word vocabulary is pretty impressive especially compared to certain teenage children of my intimate acquaintance. Anyway, here is the footage of this amazing dog:
