I'm wondering about the times your dog made a leap in logic or demonstrated powers of reasoning that were really wild.

There is nothing about Khan that is at all smart, I'm afraid. He is not particularly inquisitive, not at all into problem solving, lacks initiative, and his powers of observation leave much to be desired. Trainable? Yes! Smart? No! Suja

I adopted a shelter dog a little over a week ago and he is already showing his talents, last night I placed beer on the back porch (no room in fridge with Christmas fixings) and he opened it and removed a bottle, luckily I heard a strange noise and went out to check as he had just lay down in his favorite spot and had a bottle of (unopened) beer in his mouth.. he also watches T.V.

ROFL! I hope you got a picture!

Maggie was almost always able to get herself out of a tangled- leash situation. I don't know how common this is, but she was the only dog I've ever known who could do that.

We're currently teaching our Lab Mishka to put her toys in her toy basket at the end of the evening. She is catching on, but what's really amazing is when she takes her stuffed bear/ball/kong/whatever to the basket on her own, drops it in, and gets what we asked her to get instead.

Nope I would have loved to but he got up and ruined everything.. He has left the beer alone since I put it back in the house apparently if it is outside it is HIS..

Fly is not an intellectual dog, and of my two she's definitely the dimmer one. But she is a champion at getting out of leash tangles. It is not uncommon to tether working dogs while they are not being worked and need to be stowed somewhere (sheepdog people tend to tie out dogs in many situations where we might use crates), so I figure Fly learned the finer points of avoiding and fixing tangles in this context.

Solo normally avoids tangles. He'll start to go around something the wrong way, look at the object, and then fix himself.

None of mine do well with that. The boys will just keep walking with a tangled leash, but Taffy will stop and refuse to walk. Once, she just laid down until I stopped and fixed the leash.

Mine know how to untangle themselves (they're sleddogs (except for Saber, who figured it out anyway)). Image is a magician, however. Aside from having a lot of miles in front of the sled, she also lived most of her life on a tie-out. When she gets tangled in the leash she jumps in the air, waves her legs around, and lands untangled. It's an absolutely remarkable thing to watch.

This reminds me of what I look like when I get a spider on me or when my husband sees a snake.
Also absolutely remarkable to watch.
