It is well known that non-verbal conversation is significant to dogs. Dogs can detect things humans are never even aware of, and react to seemingly innocuous things or “phantom” stimuli, sometimes in extreme manners. They also come to understand us over time to a degree where they seem to know what we are thinking, sometimes before we do.
I miss my dogs. Just look at those faces.
My wife and I went to the Baltimore Grand Prix this past weekend. We were there all three days. We had paddock passes. I even won at Pit Pass this year. We saw drivers, got autographs, spoke to team members. And yet people seemed to know things that we had no clue about.
I’ve been very busy with work lately. In fact, I worked most of the weekend to complete a sizable task in order to free up time to complete numerous other tasks before I go on vacation next month. The days pass by without count, with each blending into the next, and today I wonder, what have I accomplished?
We all know that dogs like to go on walks, that they frequently pee to mark things, and that they are very precise about where they mark. Human interpretation says that this behavior is the patrolling and identification of territory.
