I refer to Lassie. Every week Timmy would get in some kind of trouble and Lassie would have to fetch the adults to get him out of it. I saw an episode where something was raiding the chicken coops. Timmy decided to go after the offender. Lassie, having super dog senses, knew it was a wolverine and kept trying to keep Timmy at home. That's pretty smart. That failing, Lassie goes to get the dad. In the meantime, Timmy locates the wolverine in a tree and throws rocks at it. No doubt, Lassie's IQ is much higher than Timmy's. The dad grabs a rifle and follows Lassie. Dad was no fool either. Just as Dad arrives at Timmy's location, the wolverine decides Timmy would make a good meal and comes down from the tree. Timmy is directly between Dad and the wolverine so Dad can't shoot. The scene switches back and forth between the wolverine charging and Lassie running to Timmy's aid. Since no collie is going to whip a full grown wolverine, I'm thinking how stupid this is going to be when Lassie does exactly that. The scene shows Lassie leaping into the air and the the wolverine making a similar leap. You expect them to meet in mid-air. Lassie doesn't jump on the wolverine but on Timmy instead. Timmy is knocked to the ground, giving Dad a clear shot. Dad shoots the wolverine dead. Lassie is the smartest dog EVER!
