One smart dog

Sissy came in this morning and stood by the bed, flapping her ears and jingling her collar furiously.  This is how she wakes us up.   It’s loud.

I said,  “Sissy, it’s only 5:27,  it’s my birthday and I want some more sleep.  Come back in an hour.”

She dutifully went back to her bed, I went back to sleep, and pretty soon I hear the ears and tags.  And what time do you think it was?  6:27.   Yes.  One hour exactly.

I know Sissy understands English pretty well, but who knew she could tell time?  Wow.  It’s probably because the bedroom clocks are digital.  That makes it easier.   🙂



Besides being a completely transparent way to tell people that it’s my birthday today, it’s a true story.  That’s Sissy on the right.  She’s half pit bull, half lab.  A wonderful dog after she got past her teenage rebel years.
