I had two very strange dreams last night. The notable thing is that I remember them now, several hours after waking.
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.
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.
