    Mrs. azlib’s chihuahua can jump up on the couch. Does that count as parkour?

    I noticed his kennel has a fence over the top. Keeping this guy in a kennel run would be impossible without a cover. Great training for an escape artist.

    Monkey is a Belgian Malinois. The dog, Conan, that helped exterminate the monster Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi (beloved of the NYT, WaPo and other haters of America) was of the same breed. Conan chased the terrorist down his dark tunnel which inspired him to do what they all seem to do when anxious, blow himself up. Conan was injured but recovered. Al was not so lucky; he was painted all over the inside of his tunnel.

    From Indiatoday.com: “…The breed is preferred for its compact size, making it ideal for fast-roping or jumping out of aircraft. Handlers often refer to Belgian Malinois dogs as “Maligators” or “hair missiles” due to their speed and strong jaw, a report in the Washington Post noted…”

    I love these dogs, but they are working dogs and so probably not the best choice for couch potatoes.
