Men Can’t Boil Eggs!

Peter is our office junior here at intelligent-dog.com. If we were human we might call him our general dogsbody, but we are dogs and do not want to give him ideas above his station.

Boiling an egg is not rocket science or the most difficult task in the world, but it is still too difficult for most humans and probably all men.

I very much hope they have someone looking after them. The other thing I cannot understand about Nordic walkers is the sticks. Each of them has two sticks and they seem to make quite a bit of noise with them. However, they don’t seem to use the […]
