Wednesday nights are the Man's night out with his friends, leaving me in charge of everything (note: I normally eat toast or something as I don't cook!) Last Wednesday I was working at home all day and I had a Skype consult set for 7 pm, so I made sure to feed the dogs early so I could get them out for a nice play before my meeting (mainly so they would leave me alone while working).
After their dinner and play I start to preparing for my meeting. Hailey was in my office pacing and stomping. Stomping is a behaviour she usually reserves for when we are eating something she wants. I didn't have anything to eat. I just had water. I start to go over all the reasons why she may be restless and then it hit me and what happened went like this:
Me: Hailey, I forgot to give you your pill. Is that your problem? Let's go get your pill.
Hailey: She ran up the stairs and sat in the kitchen near where her pills are kept.
I believe she was trying to tell me she needed her pill. Let's be honest, it is not the pill she wanted, it is the cookie she gets after. We always save a special kind for pill time. I was just amazed that she was able to let me know I had forgotten.
She is brilliant and beautiful!
