I have a PC in my bedroom and, as I was working away on it yesterday, I heard the clicking of paws on hardwood floors getting closer and closer. I watched the bedroom door opening and, not unexpectedly, Ray appeared. He came right up to me; stood there, and stared (he can hold amazing eye contact).
He then turned right around so he was facing the doorway, and then turned his head to look back at me. I have experienced this routine before, and it is his way asking me to follow him. He just needed to hear two words … “Show me!”
I then followed him through the house and into the kitchen, and watched as he went up to one specific area of the kitchen counter. His nose was giving a very distinct direction … to a food container which contained the results of Carol’s recent baking … a healthy banana bread.
As the banana bread was “dog friendly”, we did give him a couple of small pieces of it when we tested it the day before! I guess he felt it was time for us to have another piece each and, of course, to share with him! We did, and he was very happy. 🙂
For the whole story of Ray, please don’t forget my book about him “Who Said I was up for Adoption?” It is available direct from Friesen Press Bookstore, and also from amazon (many reviews are there) and other on-line book retailers. All net profits will be directed to the Oakville & Milton Humane Society, who initially rescued him and trained him for adoption.
