  1. Jordan Taylor has covered Chuck Eisenmann's amazing intellectual teaching of his "Littlest Hobo's". I can personally attes to this. Meeting him for the very first time at a Christmas Children's show at Toronto's Casa Loma, his dogs must have heard my name spoken. During his show, Chuck told "London" to go over to "John" & "Please take off his g-l-a-s-s-e-s"! The Dog came over to me, looking back once momentarily as if for conformation he was on the right track! Then standing up, with both front feet on my chair, he took the right hand part of my glasses in his teeth very gently & began pulling them off my face!!! Until Chuck thanked him & said "That's enough London!" The dog returned to his master & lay down.
    the reast of the show, the "Hobos" retrieved named objects from a lkow table, in some cases returning them to their lenders. Complete strangers in the audience! They opened a filing cabinet drawer & "filed" items, Chuck asked for. So it went on. On the Internet, if you access the "Shiloh Shepherd" website & scroll downwards on the left hand side, you'll find 7 or 8 or so actual accounts of how Chuck demonstrated his dogs' intelligence to the JMatthew
