does your hav alert you to things??

Other then barking at the door bell, what does your hav do to alert you to things going on around the house.
Today I noticed Whimsy sitting and staring at the closet door ..she would look at me and then stare at the door some more. Then she walked over to me and stared at me and started barking.What in the world is she doing I thought!
Well, a few minutes later I put 2 and 2 together and realized my cell phone was zipped up in my winter coat pocket and hung up in the closet with the door closed. I didn't hear it but she sure did!
Smart little buggers aren't they???

How smart she is, Evelyn. Tucker kind of grunts when he needs/wants to tell me something. Or, sometimes he'll stare at me or what he wants. He rarely barks.

She also comes running to me if the washing machine is "not in balance" and is banging around making a loud noise during the spin cycle. In that case I think she is scared and wants me to know it! LOL

Tillie actually "tattles" on my kids. and occasionally my husband. lol

Seriously, she does. Often times, one of my kids will take her 'lovie' (her little cloth bone) and hide it from her... she has this particular whine/yip that she does every time. and they ALWAYS have it. Hidden under thier shirt, sitting on it, etc.
Earlier this evening I was making dinner and I heard my husband sit down in "my" recliner... Tillie did NOT like that. She yipped a couple of times, ran into the kitchen, licked my leg, ran back into the living room and yipped again at my husband. It was hilarious. Needless to say he didn't stay in my chair for too long as she was visibly agitated about this change in events. lol

Bama has woofed at FedEx making noise outside this weekend barked at ups being outside tonight. And she never used to! I am now praising her when she is quiet when there is someone out the door.

Both times we had to sign for packages so they made those scanning beepy sounds. Maybe coincidence. And the UPS guy tonight wasn't our usual guy. And come to think of it, FedEx often can't seem to deliver a package when we are home (gate code they should have), so maybe she was just shocked they showed up. Hah!

Bugs occasionally. She got upset when her radio was messed up...it wasn't static, but the cd the station was playing was skipping (they explained after the song). She listens to classical music, mostly when she is by herself.

Oh gosh, where do I start?

Um...
The doorbell
A car door closing outside that is not one of our vehicles
People talking outside, whether it be the neighbors or people on the sidewalk
Our neighbors just put in a pool so there were a lot if strange voices out there
There's a Christmas tree in our living room
That we set something down on the floor that is not one of his toys
Doorbells and chime sounds on the tv
The vacuum was left out of the closet
His ball rolled under the couch

Uh...
I'm sure there are more.

Angie and Trooper

Trooper is a Moptop boy! If only I could think up a registered name...
