That Stare

Cazzie looks at me intently. He stares at me. I stare back. I say, "Come on Cazzie, say something." He just stares. He doesn't take his eyes off of me. The staring stand-off is broken when I look away. I can't take it!

Do your Havs stare at you too? Whatever do they want??????

Tess watches me like a hawk but I don't get that stare. Cody on the other hand will stop in the middle of a walk to stare at me. "What, what do you want?" He finally starts walking again, looking disgusted that I didn't take care of whatever it was he needed. He probably thinks I need so much more training....

I get the stare when she has a kleenex in her if she watching my every move to make sure I don't try and steal it away from her.

Renee, Miley, & Copper too!

Ha ha Suzy. I know that stare! Jasper is the king of staring. I have learned what some of the stares mean by time of day and the position of the stare. If it is 10pm and he comes right up to me or DH and stares it means he wants to go out. If I have just come home and he follows me from room to room and stares where ever I land... I know he wants to herd me to a chair so he can jump on my lap. If Cash has a chew or took a chew that was Jas' ... he will stare at me as "Mom..Cash took my chew"

But then there are the times he has been out, does not jump up on my lap, and cash is not in the room...and he still stares... and I don't have a clue.

Missy, Jasper & Cash

I love that stare too. I also love when Pixie follows behind me when I'm walking and bumps my leg with her little nose.

Beth, Pixie Puff and MiG too

With Kodi, I think it's just that he wants to communicate. It's that eye contact that makes him so easy to train, and so quick to pick up on what I want. While all the other people in his classes are trying to get their puppies' attention, Kodi and I are already "playing" (I know he doesn't think of it as work!) because he is USUALLY paying attention.

I get the stare too. If I don't respond right away it's followed by either a bark or pawing at my leg or arm. That means "do it". As I stand up, they will turn and run to the item needing help bowls and refridgerator, back door to be let out, water bowl...oops it's empty!, or toy box meaning let's play!
