Dog Stays Close To Speakerphone...
"Yep, looks like Duchess is soooo patient with Sadie! That is so cute. I sure know what you mean about not knowing what you would do without them! Me too!
Thought you might get a chuckle out of something my hubby told me about what my bulldog did when I went to see my mother in New Hampshire for a week.
We have a speaker phone. Last year hubby used it to let me 'talk' to my bully because he was soooo stressed out I was gone (he is my shadow). Anyway, this year, my hubby would turn on the speakerphone so I could 'talk' to the dogs - which seemed to help them quite a bit hearing my voice. This seemed to alleviate both the dogs stress ... and mine. Anyway, they apparently figured out that that particular 'thing' (phone) was the way to hear my voice. So ... being the smart guy he is, he decided to try to get the phone to get my voice himself! Hubby said he hadn't gotten any telephone calls that day (which was unusual) and Gunner (my shadow) was very quiet. Plus he couldn't see him so he went into the den - which is where we have that phone. There laid Gunner next to the phone (hubby had it on the floor) looking at hubby so sad. Hubby said the receiver was off the hook and pulled way away from the phone - which had been on the hook before. He asked Gunner if he was trying to call me and Gunner got up and started prancing and jumping all over the place. Hubby called me and we 'talked' and he said Gunner was fine after that.
Go figure. He said before that incident, Gunner would go over to the phone and get so excited when hubby said he was going to call me that he just pranced around and grinned from ear to ear (of course, that COULD have just been hubby's interpretation). BUT... another time he said Gunner came to hubby's 'hidy hole' room with a toy in his mouth. He said he just stood in the doorway, dropped the toy, and let out a single bark (which is unusual for Gunner to do). Hubby thought he had to go potty so started for the back door. Gunner stopped in the den by the speakerphone, sat down and gave another single bark. Hubby told him to come on but he wouldn't budge. Said he then started just barking and pawing at the phone. Now is that a smarty or what? Anyway, it worked. Hubby called and Gunner was content.
Okay, so those things are ridiculous to do for a dog ... but it IS funny! Now all I have to do is to teach him how to use the speed dial or the voice dial system and .... he's on his own.) Have a great week and thanks so much for the pictures. LOVE THEM!"
