Those of you who read our Logical Tips ezine may have read about the Bad Canine Digestive Event.
Having all four dogs sick was NOT fun, but the team is much improved. After a trip to the vet, we pretty much concluded that the problem was a bad bag of dog food. So order is restored to our furry universe. In fact, even now, the canines are having a big horizontal snore fest in my office.
Well, except Cami, who has decided it’s time to give me “jerk face.” She comes over and sits next to my left elbow and stares. She has this particular way of peering up at me from under her incredibly fuzzy eyebrows and smoothing her ears back on her head. If you didn’t know her, you’d think it was just a really cute expression.
But no. Cami has something on her mind and she wants me to know it. Pretty much every dog owner knows what jerk face is. Basically, it’s the look that means, “if you don’t pay attention to me, I’m going to be a big jerk.” (Although I don’t have kids, I’ve seen kids get that look too and thought “uh oh.”)
Jerk face is the look Cami gives me when she wants something. She might want attention. She might want to go out. Or she might want dinner. But I know she wants something. And if she doesn’t get it, she’ll be a really big jerk.
Gosh, it must be nice to have such well-trained humans 😉
