Mom Throws Toy Letters On The Floor And Watches As Dog Rearranges Them To Spell Her Own Name

My family and I often joke that our dog is the smartest one in the house.

Our 14-year-old black lab has seen a lot in her days, and I’m pretty sure she’s wiser than I’ll ever be. I think you can often tell how much a dog knows from the look behind their eyes.

But I have to say, even though I have a pretty smart dog, I’ve never seen a pup do anything like Penny.

Penny the dog already knows how to do something most dogs never learn how to do.

She can spell her own name!

According to Storyful, Penny’s human, Leonora, thought it would be fun to try teaching her beloved dog how to spell her own name. But she couldn’t believe how quickly her pup picked up the skill.

Before long, Penny could easily spell her own name using toy letters — although she doesn’t quite have the ordering down yet!

I hope Leonora tells her training secrets soon, because this is something I’d love to try with my own dog! I know they say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but I’m willing to try.
