I just posted about how good I am at relaxing. However, did you also realize that I am very good at multi-tasking? This is true. Dogs are inherently good at multi-tasking. For instance, here I am lounging in the hallway.
But wait! Behind that door, my dad is hard at work. While he is working, he can't be disturbed. So while it appears that I am lounging, I am in fact guarding the door so that my dad will be left alone to work.
As I said, I'm good at multi-tasking.
