So cute and clever!They are the best 'anti-depressant'!
Our senior boy Joseph is quite the talker, always has been. When it is close to meal time he likes to remind me - sits and stares at me, if I ignore him, then gives a whine, then I look at him, and he gives me this 'starving dog' face while looking at me and then at the bin where the food is kept and then back to me. If I don't move, then he starts 'groaning', followed by a soft 'woof' - being very polite about it. When it is 'finally' meal time - he watches intently as I put the food in the bowls for him and Cache, trying not to drool - too much. As soon as I pick up the bowls and goes and sits in the spot where he is always fed and waits politely for dinner to be served.
When we have to go somewhere and the dogs are staying home, I don't have to say anything to him, he watches while we get ready, hoping he is coming but as soon as I pick up my purse, his head drops knowing he is staying home and he goes off to the bedroom and closes the door behind himself. There has been a few times when he has (seemingly) 'slammed' the door like a child in a huff.
Cache is so funny to watch, he likes to try to protect his 'air space' - keep his yard 'bird free'. The birds never disappoint him, swooping from one side of the yard to the other, with Cache giving chase right behind them. He also learned that if they have gathered in the hedge, he can 'shake them loose' by jumping up and 'bouncing' off the bushes, and as soon as they take off, the chase is on!
