Wandering Into Wisdom

This blog chronicles the knowledge, insight and wisdom I encounter every day as a leadership consultant, executive coach, educator, father, friend and citizen. This site is dedicated to my father, Louis (Jack) Laughlin, who passed on to me an appreciation for wisdom. A special thanks to my friend Isaac Cheifetz, a businessman and journalist, who helped me understand the value of blogs and encouraged me to write one.

Dog Gone*

We recently lost our beloved beagle Beans who was so difficult to train we had to keep him on a leash in the house. We soon got another rescue from the Humane Society, a border collie named Rio. The difference is remarkable. He seems to know what to do before we give the command. We loved having a smart dog, right up until we caught him sneaking stuffed animals out of my daughter’s room and opening the gate to his pen. Border collies are considered the smartest breed of dogs while beagles are in the bottom ten percent. In the end, this just means different kinds of challenges. Dog Intelligence Rankings
