After watching humans use money to buy food, this very clever boy had an idea.

This is important.

It’s possibly the most important story of the year, nay, the decade.

A doggo named Negro has just learnt the value of currency.

You see, Negro lives at the Diversified Technical Education Institute of Monterrey Casanare in Colombia.

He was adopted by the staff there and he spends his days freely roaming around the campus and chatin’ to the students.

And possibly taking a few classes.

The students would sometimes buy Negro cookies at the local store because he's a very, very good boy.

After watching the students exchange money for said cookies, Negro decided to give it a go himself.

He grabbed a leaf off the ground and approached the counter of the campus store.

"I do a buy. I have many leaves," he probably told the store attendant during the exchange. "Leaves are no object, I very rich."

“One day, spontaneously, he appeared with a leaf in his mouth, wagging his tail and letting it be known that he wanted a cookie,” teacher Angela Garcia Bernal told The Dodo.

Negro's nifty lil' plan worked. He successfully exchanged his, erm, evergreen currency for a cookie.

“He comes for cookies every day,” Gladys Barreto, the store attendant, told The Dodo. “He always pays with a leaf. It is his daily purchase.”

Because Negro's currency literally grows on trees, the store had to limit his shopping sprees to a couple of cookies a day.

“When you first see it, you almost want to cry. He’s found a way to make himself understood. He’s very intelligent,” Bernal told the publication.

Yes, well.

I would like to cry and pat all the dogs and eat all the cookies pls.
