18-year-old Mary requires a service dog to help her deal with life on the autism spectrum. That is where 4-year-old Secret, an Australian Shepherd who she’s had since a puppy, comes in. The dog lives with Mary in Washington State, where she is her constant companion – even accompanying Mary to classes at her local community college.
Secret is a very, very clever dog – something that she demonstrates during the pair’s favorite pastime: Jenga.
“I started teaching Secret Jenga a little while ago, and she’s finally getting the hang of it,” Mary wrote alongside a video of her and Secret playing Jenga.
The video, which was posted on Instagram, went viral pretty quickly.
While it might be assumed that as a dog Secret wouldn’t be able to play Jenga since it’s a game that requires patience and certain motor skills. However, Secret isn’t like most other dogs. In fact, this unique girl also enjoys activities such as painting and sledding!
“She really enjoys games that require precision like this, so we’ve been having a lot of fun with it!” Mary explained.
As demonstrated in the video, Secret can even play the game better than a lot of other humans. This dog is very talented. And what is even more astonishing is that she doesn’t play for treats or any reward, it seems that Mary’s congratulations and a pet, seem to be all that she needs.
Game night at Mary’s must be so unique and fun with this talented dog around.
