This Amazing Dog Paints, Irish Dances and Does Household Chores.
The world is no stranger to the smarts of breeds like the border collie and Australian shepherd, but Secret is a mix of both — and her talents extend well beyond the realm of the average herder! She paints! She dances! She does yoga and — this one’s really impressive — household chores! Thusly, Secret has become a bit of an Instagram sensation. More than 76,000 followers peek in on what she and owner, Mary, are up to on a regular basis.
