|"What are you doing, Pet?"|
Sometimes I'll talk to her, and she strains to understand me, just like my Corgi, Dancer, did years ago. I will say something like "listen very carefully, because I'm saying something really important" and I can see her strain and strain to have her little brain try to understand what I'm saying.
Just like Dancer, it's almost like if she could just think a little harder, then she'd understand.
