Yes I always worry about Red being bored - not when we are away as she is active most of the day (unless it’s a driving day, then not so much but she still gets her walks) but at home. She gets two long walks daily, both different but always plenty of opportunities to sniff, interact with other dogs if we meet any and choices. I do play games with her in the house but I have to confess less these days (covid, arthritis and back problems have depleted my energy levels). She does sleep a lot and seems content.One of my biggest fears is that Ella is bored
Yes, I agree.It's really kind of an odd contract between humans and dogs
Every single day Kipper and I have a conversation about opposable thumbs, and why he doesn’t get to control the food budget/allocation. It would be so much more fun, but also probably beyond our means…I always wonder what our lives would look like if Carbón had opposable thumbs and a credit card instead of me. I suspect we'd have a lot more fun in our lives! And food - a LOT more food.
Rowan and I have this discussion all the time. No mum and dad can't go out and leave you with Chewie.Every single day Kipper and I have a conversation about opposable thumbs, and why he doesn’t get to control the food budget/allocation.

I'm sure she can get a lot of information from your body language and movements when you talk to her.Talking of having conversations , I chat away to our two all the time , especially on walks , shall we take that path or this path ? I know Nelly cant hear me but I`m sure she knows I am talking to her
I know I've told this story a billion times, but when I realised that Brogan had gone deaf, I stopped talking to him because I thought it was silly. But the thing is that I'd talked to him pretty much constantly before, and everything seemed so quiet and sad. Even HE seemed a bit sadder, though for him it wouldn't have made an ounce of difference. I held out for 10 days of silence and then just decided the hell with it, who cares if he's deaf? And started talking to him again nonstop. We were both much happier.know Nelly cant hear me but I`m sure she knows I am talking to her
