    as ... as any vs. as ... as any other ?

    Hello teachers!

    I've found the following:

    1. My dog is as intelligent as any dog in Tokyo.

    Isn't it necessary to put "other" before "dog in Tokyo"?

    If not, would you let me know the difference between #1 and #2 below?

    2. My dog is as intelligent as any other dog in Tokyo.


    Thank you very much in advance for your help.

    yam.

    In example 1, your dog could be anywhere, including Tokyo. In example 2, it could only be in Tokyo.
