Nothing Escapes Them
Our dogs are so tuned in to us, it seems...sometimes I think Alfie almost knows more about me than I do about him! Any of you ever get this feeling from your dog?
Yes, I can read your mind: "Going to buy the dog a bone!"
This seems to be true of everyone in our family. He always seems to know where we're going to go and what we're going to do. Today Charissa wanted to practice whistle recall with him (he needs to have solid recall with both the Come command and the whistle). Now, mind you, she didn't tell him this, though it goes without saying that he was watching her. She went to get his whistle off the rack and it wasn't there. So she asked me where it was, and I told her to look in my car. Off she goes into the garage, rummaging around unsuccessfully...when Alfie pops in behind her, bumps her with his nose til she finally looks at him....and after getting her attention he noses the seatback, where my lanyard (whistle attached) was sort of squeezed in the crack under the headrest. I REALLY hope his future owner can put this personality of his to good use! Dogs are so fun!
