One of the greatest mysteries of life is not the pyramids. Or crop circles. Or UFO’s. Nope, THE unanswered question is how the dogs know what I am going to do even before I do. This afternoon while I was eating lunch, I thought I would take a few of the dogs for a free run with the ATV. The morning had started badly with symptoms from a medical issue I am dealing with, but after several hours rest I was feeling better and wanted some fresh air. No sooner had I finished the thought, when the dogs, who up to this point had been napping, started to pace. And pace. And pace.
I finished lunch, checked email and read a chapter in a new mystery book. The dogs finally settled down until I made the decision to get my outdoor gear on and you guessed it, instantly the pacing began. How did they know? My parka is on a hook in the bathroom so I could have been needing to pee. Somehow they knew.
It happens all the time. I can be sitting at the kitchen table making a list of which dogs are going to be run that day and the entire dogyard suddenly starts going crazy. Darrel says that about 5 minutes before I get home. which isn’t the same time every day, Polar and Wooley start looking out the window.
Amazing creatures these dogs! Anyway, here are some pictures from today.
