Do our dogs care?
I've seen a few threads about dogs being solicitous of their owners when we are sick, I thought I'd share my recent story.
My older pup Dude, 9 months has been sleeping out of his crate for about 3 months with no problems. He settles nicely and doesn't wake me til my alarm goes off. Well until this week that is. On Thursday night/Friday morning he woke me up twice leaning over me. No whining, no licking, just staring at me. The 3rd time he was nosing my face and head and whining, that time I realized I had a killer migraine started.
I was incapacitated the rest of the day, my daughter came up to take care of me and the pups (I also have a 5 month old). Dude wouldn't leave my side and they were both soooo quiet, you wouldn't know that there were puppies in the house.
I'm almost 100% this morning but both pups are babying me like crazy! So yes, I believe that our dogs care. And yes I believe Dude knew the migraine was coming on. And yes, both will be getting extra treats today!
