I like most people. I may not cuddle up to them the way I do my Connie, but I enjoy having them around. The more people around of course means, more chances for extra treats, but the interesting part is the various scents I pickup from each person. If people could only get inside my head when I become mesmerized by their smell they’ed understand why it’s so interesting to me. You can’t hide anything from a dog. I can smell everything you think by the scents those thoughts bring out in you. It’s just a good thing for some that I can’t blab it out loud.
My Connie has the ability to read my mind because she loves me and knows by my expressions what I’m trying to tell her. That’s the way humans read each other too, by their actions. For humans actions speak louder than words, but still not as loud as scents speak to dogs.
Sometimes I try to get inside my Connie’s head so she can see what I’m seeing about her. I sit with my bulging brown eyes staring at her. Look into my eyes, I’m trying to tell her. I’ve been doing it a lot lately because she hasn’t been feeling good for months, and I know what’s wrong. She looks at me and says “ it’s okay, Ollie, I know what’s wrong, and I’m going to be fine.” But I’m still not sure if she’s seeing what I’m smelling, and I smell her worry in-spite of how she try’s to put my mind at ease. I’d take away her sickies if I could could sniff them out of her body. I try really hard to do that, but I guess I don’t having enough sniffing faith to move mountains yet. Maybe if I stop thinking about it so much the way humans do, it will come to me naturally the way my inner senses always guide me. Sometimes we just need to get out of our own way and trust in our inner dog God.
