A proud dog owner from China claims that he has been able to train his two-year-old canine companion to do arithmetic, it has been revealed.
According to Lu Zesheng, he poses the questions and his dog, Potato, barks the answers, the Telegraph reported.
For example, when asked "How much is 3.44 plus 3.56?" Potato barks seven times which, according to Lu, means he knows the answer is seven.
Along with being able to solve mathematical puzzles, Lu says Potato also has an excellent memory and when asked for the number on the side of China's first aircraft carrier the dog barks the correct answer "sixteen".
According to Chinese state television, Potato can also memorise mobile phone numbers and people's ages.
