It's really funny this should come upp now because Lu yesterday did something I have NEVER seen a dog do. She was sitting there looking at herself in the mirror - which I've seen many dogs do. I think most dogs think it's a dog that is oddly inaccessible to them, behind the glass. They are all familiar with windows.
But Lu caught my attention because she seemed to be experimenting with lowering or raising her head, turning, opening her mouth and closing it.
Then she looked at me in the mirror because I couldn't help making some amused sounds. She looked for a while, then turned around and looked towards where I should have been - but where I was standing I was only visible to her in the mirror. She then turned back and used the mirror to keep looking at me. At the same time she kept her ears turned back towards me, but she reacted to the reflection.
I live with a giant, very scary smart dog. I'm glad she's on OUR side. At least I'm pretty sure she's on our side. LOL
