Ty doesn't know why the toy monkey is important. He just knows that it's important to me. He looks at me intently when I tell him that it's very important that he brings the monkey to me. But he's not a Labrador. Ty is a Chihuahua, and so it's very hard for him to hold his attention span long enough to remember how important it is that he bring the monkey to me. But he's a team player, so he tries his best.
