Wheatens In NeedŽ Success Stories - 2011
Smart Molly story: when I got back from being abroad, I found the
spill-proof water bowl we keep in her crate on the kitchen counter.
What’s it doing here? I asked my husband. “Oh, Molly brought it to
me the other day.” Really? How come? “I don’t know! I thought it was
hilarious!” Well, the bowl was totally DRY. THAT’s why she’d brought
it to him - to fill it up! She has another water bowl, of course,
but likes having this one close by when she naps. And she knew (or
thought she knew) how to get it filled. Only hubby didn’t “get” the
signal. Now he knows!
This rescued WIN girl is very communicative. When she wants
something she comes over unbidden, puts her paws on your shoulders,
stares into your eyes or licks your hands or ears. The challenge is
to figure out what’s on her mind. Just now she did it again - she’d
just been “out,” so that wasn’t it; we put food down, she sniffed it
and walked away. So, what was it? She went and stood by the living
room door and stared at me. Ding! She wanted the front window
shutters opened so that she could watch happenings in the park
across the street! As soon as I opened them she grabbed one of her
toys, hopped up on the couch, and settled in happily for a long
“watch.” What a character.
