German shepherd (0/6): Pledged complete and eternal loyalty to the game — surely it must be superior to a dog if it was made by a human. Wordle is family now. Must protect Wordle at all costs.
Golden retriever (1/6): Amazingly, got it in one try. We are assuming this was a lucky guess. Smiled blankly at the game for the rest of the time, waiting for it to do something-anything-hi-there-wait-where-are-you-going-can-I-come-with-you??
Labrador retriever (6+/6): Typed in BALLS and hit “enter.” No correct letters. Typed in BALLS and hit “enter.” No correct letters. Typed in BALLS and hit “enter.” No correct letters. (Repeated until we took the device away.)
Pit bull (0/6): Cautiously sniffed device and rolled over to have his belly rubbed.
Poodle (3/6): Caught on quickly but complained that tapping the buttons ruined her manicure. Was upset that there weren’t more French words in the game.
Saint Bernard (0/6): Shorted out the device. Nearly a quarter of drool was later extracted from it.
Cat (0/6): Stared at game screen with fascination before knocking device off the table.
