I just had to share this with other doglovers :-)
I went out this morning to water the flowers (hot day ahead) and when I glanced back, I saw my dog through the clear door screen, standing up and looking at me with an anxious expression.
I went back in and said,"I'm only going to be out for a few minutes, but you can come out with me if you want. Do you want to?"
My dog went over to his leash and stood right beside it, and then he lifted his chin and puffed his chest out, like, "Put it on! Put it on!" It was so cute and funny!
I clipped his leash on and brought him outside, attached to a long line outside which I keep for when I do yardwork. He laid there and watched me water the flowers, he seemed quite happy.
Any more stories about cute smart things your dog does?
They understand more than you think!
