Can your dog tell time? Ours can!
I've spent the better part of this afternoon working on building my site. I joined premium about 3 weeks ago, intending to jumpstart my experience here and learn everything I could, as fast as possible - and guess what? Life got in the way! So what's new? The good thing is - I haven't panicked. It's been really good, getting email notifiers from WA when somebody publishes a blog or makes a comment. I scroll through them each day, trying to read 5-10 of them at a time. Helps me continue to feel connected to the community here, and that helps keep the positive energy flowing. So, when I got a bit overwhelmed trying to remember all the steps to building a WP site, I decided to take a break and come here to write for a bit . . . maybe I can encourage someone, too.
We have a chocolate lab - she will be seven years old soon . . . oh, this week in fact! She's the best dog ever, but (like most labs) she absolutely lives for food. She's very patient in the mornings - she'll wait until one of us is up before she eats, no matter how long that takes. But in the afternoon, I swear she tells time. When the clock says 4:12 pm, suddenly she's there - in your line of sight, sitting with her ears perked, staring into your face. It's time to eat. If you are otherwise occupied she'll wait patiently for a bit, but pretty soon she's panting and pacing, then pawing, then dancing around in circles trying to get your attention. People who train dogs would scold us for allowing her to be so rude, but when you've got a dog who allows a one year old baby to be her "Alpha", who sleeps by the door until everyone is home safe for the night, and who snores so peacefully that it'll put you to sleep as well - who cares if her stomach can tell the time? She's the best!
