Dog Wants Attention
The situation today, started out with me rereading one of my previous pages about getting a new dog.
I marveled at how small he was. As I try to recapture the photo in the same position, the dog's behavior has changed. In the original photo he is just letting me stroke his ear.
Today, I was trying to stroke his ear. He, was trying to lick my hand. The cat, which had previously hissed at the dog at every occasion, was now circling both of us and getting louder and louder with its purring.
The dog stopped with the attention to my hand and looked down at the cat. The next minute, he was herding the cat to his food bowl and pushed the cat to it. The cat began chewing on the food.
The dog came back by me. Commence stroking and licking. The cat wandered back. Once again, the dog interrupted his licking of my hand to stare at the cat. Once again, he herded the cat to his bowl. The cat started to eat the food again.
