Dogs sometimes run to their parent when they've had a nightmare, just like human children do. So, when Spot jumped up into my lap shaking, I thought she was scared and just woke up from a nightmare. But as I was petting her, and she was shaking, she was looking at me with condemnation.
Why would my dog blame her nightmare on me? That's when I noticed it felt a little chilly, and that's when it dawned on me that it was 43 degrees outside and I had left the window open right next to where she likes to sleep.
Spot almost never jumps in my lap, but tonight she had to remind me to close the window!
