Come to think of it, Sandy does have a certain look that he gave me today. After Sandy ate his food, OH said that Sandy has to go outside to potty. I said that didn’t he just go at the park? And, OH said, yes, and Sandy had peed 4 times at the park within the hour. I told him I didn’t think Sandy had to go. Often Sandy has to have a BM after he eats, but he wasn’t feeling well and vomited yesterday and finally had a few bites of kibble in the evening. So, I didn’t thing Sandy had anything in him. But, OH insisted. So, I took Sandy out in the backyard. He sniffed a bit, and then he looked up at me with this facial expression that looks like he is saying that he tried, but he doesn’t have to potty.
I recognized it immediately, and I said to him, “No potty?” And, he then turned and started walking to the back door.
So, yes, I know that look.
And, Sandy appeared quite relieved that I received his message.
Now, I’ll begin looking to see if he has other expressions, and I’m sure like this one, it will ring a bell in my mind.
Now, I have to train OH.
