** Its more than that. Unlike wolf packs, Moscow's stray dogs, particularly the beggar dogs, have a hierarchy where dominance is determined by intelligence rather than physical strength. Not only do they know how to navigate the subway systems as demonstrated above, but also recognize and use crosswalk signals with fatalities being a rarity. They are adept at figuring out the psychologies of each person in order to determine which technique will work best, even sending out their cutest, smallest members of the pack to garner more success in begging from them.

* The dog in ''MadAboutYou'' is actually fairly clever.

* The dog in ''MadAboutYou'' ''Series/MadAboutYou'' is actually fairly clever.



* The Veterinary Sketch on ''A Bit of Fry & Laurie'' featured Stephen Fry as a babblingly stupid dachshund fancier, getting on the nerves of Hugh Laurie's cat-owning character. The end of the sketch reveals that the dachsie is, quite sensibly, taking Stephen in to the vet's to be put down.
* Despite his laziness Buck the Bundy's dog from MarriedWithChildren is smarter than his owners. Granted, this is not a significant challenge and does not prove that Buck is above canine-normal intelligence.
