Some things come naturally to Happy like begging for a ride or food, taking a long afternoon nap, or sniffing out a bone hiding in Grandpa’s hand.  But other things like learning to touch a block to answer questions is so strange a concept that it takes hours of practice to learn.

At first the idea of touching the blocks was so foreign that Happy just looked at us blankly.  Staring off into space wishing that he were somewhere else.  But with trial and error we found out that if we made learning more like playtime Happy did not mind touching the blocks to try and answer our questions. He might not always get the answer right, but make it fun and Happy will do his best to try and get the answer right.
