Dog Emotions

How Sandy Communicates

Sandy has no words to express her dog emotions. She understand human words although she cannot make them herself. But she is a great communicator.

So what does she do?

Sandy emotes.

A tragedy has befallen her.

Perhaps her favorite toy has been taken by another dog.

Or her spot on the couch usurped by a guest.

But she clearly needs the help of a caring human.

I dare you to take this frisbee!

Come on. Chase me.

Let's play!

I have no idea what you are doing on the computer, but it can’t be more important than taking me for a walk.

Right now.

"This is my toy.  No, I am not sharing."

Note her raised eyebrows, watching you.

It’s cold outside.

No, I am not going out there.

Don’t even ask.

I can hold it. . . until Spring if necessary.

The face of hope.

I am being a good dog, sitting on my mat

Reward please?

Loyal pup. Waiting for her human. 

This was taken the first week Sandy became a part of my family.
