Greyt Inspirations Life

A little about our life, our business and our pets.

Dog Communication

Shadow is the most intelligent dog of our 4 dogs. He has learned to communicate his wishes very well.

We were eating supper last night on the couch (I know, bad…) and our oldest son is a very slow eater. When he finally finished his supper, there was one french fry and a bit of chicken skin left on his plate that he set on the table beside him. Shadow always waits until we are finished eating to initiate his daily Roo so as soon as we were all done eating, up he gets and “communicates” to us that it is time to Roo. I say “okay” and away they all go… most days (but not all) they get a treat after their Roo.

Yesterday, once they were done their Roo, Shadow walks over to our son, looks at his plate with the french fry and chicken skin, looks back at Philippe – straight into his eyes (Shadow has the most gorgeous, expressive eyes), he waits a few seconds, looks back at the plate, then back at Philippe. By this point, we have all noticed what he is doing and start to laugh. He looks at me, then at hubby, then back at Philippe, then to the plate again and back to Philippe. We laugh harder. This goes on for a few more minutes, then we give in and give him the french fry (but not the chicken skin as he is allergic to chicken..). He quickly finishes the french fry and looks back at the plate again, back to Philippe…you get the picture….  We tell Philippe to end Shadows torture and put his plate in the kitchen.

Too funny! I love our dogs, they keep us smilin’.
