The Look…

DSC_0024.JPGI took this shot of Molly two days ago–this is how she looks at me these days, intense, searching for understanding. She has evolved gradually into  this behavior.  She now responds well to a few hand signals. As she approaches her fourth year, I notice that she holds her stares longer than she used to. If I hold my hand up high, she will come. If I put my hand out, she will put her left paw in my palm. We don’t overdo the training. She is a border collie mix with, perhaps, a little cattle dog thrown in.  Clearly, she is instinctively a working dog  maturing into the dog she wants to be.

  1. My dog – a pitbull mix – does the very same thing! They already start so wise…and their wisdom grows deeper.

  2. Really impressive. I can’t see my hapless brown Labrador being quite so good though which why he is so fun to blog about


  3. Thanks for the comment. Dogs are great!
