Call it curious, call it nosey, call it inquisitive. Whatever it is, our dogs are the biggest Nosey Rosies I have ever seen. They seem to need to know what's going on at all times.
Yesterday, while playing in the back yard, they kept sticking their noses into a hole they've dug. So Jerry went and found an old bucket and laid it over the hole. These two walked around it for a while, keeping their distance, until Indy got brave enough to check it out with her nose. They were so amazed by this curious new object in the back yard. I think they have expected it to spring to life and start chasing them!
Privacy in the bathroom? Forget about it. If I go into the bathroom and don't quite get the door closed all the way, eventually someone pokes their nose in. Sometimes a couple of them peek in. They can't stand to think that you're behind that closed door doing something they can't see. Surely they must be missing something exciting!
Our moms need lots of quiet and privacy when they are whelping their pups, but we still need to know what's going on in the rest of the house, so we keep the doors open but put these gates in the doorways to keep the other dogs out. They stand there, being as patient as they can, and watch as the puppies are born. It's really quite comical. They look like a nervous family in a hospital, anxiously awaiting the birth of their loved one.
I'm wondering if all dogs are like this, or just ours. And I often wonder exactly what they're thinking when they're checking things out. What's going on in those curious minds?
