What do dogs think, anyway?
I pulled out a reel of thread and a needle today to do some mending.
The dog went crazy.
He jumped up at me, reaching for the thread - fortunately, he wasn't interested in needle). What did he think it was? Nothing edible, surely?
And how come he knows what I'm thinking?
How does he know when I'm going out in the car and intend to take him with me, and when I don't?
How does he know when I have decided to take him for a walk, before I have even moved a muscle to fetch his lead?
How does he know that what I am eating is truly delicious for dogs, as he sits watching, gaze unnerving me into sharing.
How does he know?
