This Dog Playing Jenga Will Make Your Day
She was taught to play the game by her best friend, who has autism.
I know who I’m inviting to my next game night!
An Australian shepherd named Secret, who lives in Washington with her human, Mary, has learned how to play Jenga, and she’d probably beat most people. In June, Mary shared a video to the pair’s popular Instagram page, @my_aussie_gal, showing Secret’s impressive skills.
The clip shows Mary and Secret playing Jenga against one another, with the pup carefully pulling blocks from the bottom half of the tower using her teeth. Actually, “carefully” may be the understatement of the century. Secret is so slow and steady when pulling a block that you’d think all of pup-kind would be annihilated if she made the tower crash.
“I started teaching Secret Jenga a little while ago, and she’s finally getting the hang of it,” Mary wrote in the caption. That’s also an understatement!
It’s no shock that this adorable video has gone viral. In the month since it was posted, it’s already racked up more than 670,000 views to go along with thousands of comments.
Playing Jenga isn’t the only way Secret has shown her skills to the world. The pair has more than 440,000 followers, and it’s not just because they so cute together.
Last winter, Mary showed the world how much Secret enjoys sledding in the snow. She even pulls the sled back up to the top of the hill for another ride! Many people have a hard time getting their kids to master that part.
In January, Mary also revealed that she lives with autism and Secret helps her out as a service dog. She showed a picture of the pup wearing her official uniform while saying Secret accompanies her to classes at a local community college.
This pair clearly has an amazing bond, and we’re lucky they share their adventures with us.
