Chaser is the proverbial old dog who can learn new tricks. In fact, this nine-year-old border collie continues to acquire knowledge at a rate that boggles human minds: To date, she has learned the names of more than a thousand objects, thus establishing herself as the accomplished language learner of any nonhuman animal. In fact, in addition to mastering that staggering vocabulary, she knows nouns, verbs, and prepositions and can comprehend these grammatical elements together in a sentence. In this book, her owner, retired psychologist John W. Piley, Jr. describes his pet's remarkable achievements and explains why their significance far transcends their Guinness World Record status. An apt gift for dog owners who are sometimes awed by the intelligence of their pets.
