rushdoggie Posted July 13, 2013 Report Share Posted July 13, 2013 So, here's a phrase that gets repeated in my house: "sorry, not the right kind of pants..." Its said to the dogs who are moping away from us. My dogs determine whats happening in their lives by sniffing the pants we put on. If we move into the bedroom to get dressed, they follow us closely and crowd around our legs to see what we are putting on. Sweats or PJ bottoms? oh, bummer...no excitement, we are just hanging around the house. Work pants (or scrubs in my DH's case)? even more sadness, we are leaving them...dogs go sit next to their crates to await their "kennel up" cookie and our imminent departure. clean jeans or shorts? hey now...low level excitement, we may be taking them somewhere! dog classes happen in clean jeans...Lowes and feed store happen in clean jeans... dirty jeans or shorts? Over-the-top excitement! Yard clothes! frisbee is imminent! agilities can happen! we are going outside for fun stuffs! And if my DH puts on the lawn mowing jeans the Border Collie goes bonkers! When DH mows, he and the BC have a game (before anyone gets worried, theres zero danger to the dog, its a push mower, man watches carefully and dog doesn't get very close to the mower) where the dog places the ball carefully next to the path the man and mower take, and when man gets to the ball, he stops and gives it a long range kick. Border Collie heaven. Pants. Dogs are funny. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
