I’ve always wondered whether my dogs had any thoughts about the things I did.
The back bathroom in our house was always mine. The seat stayed up for two reasons: First, it’s my bathroom! Second, that’s where the dogs drank. I kept a water dish on the patio for them but they never used it for some reason. That made me wonder about when I came out of the bathroom; did they look at each other and ask, “Why does that guy always pee in our water dish?”
When we turn on the stereo, radio, or TV, do dogs wonder how we did it? We take it for granted when we walk into a room, hit the switch, and the lights come on. Have you ever thought about whether dogs wonder how we made the lights come on?
“How does he do that?” Sam asks.
“Do what?” Bear responds.
“Make light come out of the ceiling.”
“I don’t know. Don’t think I ever cared.”
Then there was the night I came home from the Marine Corps Birthday party. I got to the front door, realized I had forgotten my keys, and went around to the patio door. I had been the host and I furnished the Marine Corps flag, two swords, and a plaque and I was carrying all of them while I negotiated the obstacle course that was my patio.
Oh, it might help to understand the following paragraph if I tell you I was just the slightest bit tipsy.
Just as I got to the patio door, my feet got tangled up with something and I went down. Not just down, but down and forward, right through one section of the patio screen. I have to wonder what the dogs thought.
Probably something like, “Oh, he’s home again.”
“Yeah, but why’d he break through that back window?”
“Oh, you know him, some days he comes in the front door, sometimes the back, sometimes the side, this time he just decided to fall through a window.”
“I guess that’s just the way humans are.”
