That sounds reasonable of Alfred. It's always interesting to me which dogs stay on our heels, and which are, as you said, a little more relaxed.
That is quite different! I've actually never had a dog stare, and maintain the eye contact, for more than a short period of time. Only during training sessions, or perhaps at food...!
Lol! Perhaps he wants to make sure that you are saving enough for cases of dog biscuits!
We've spoken about that here since covid...that we credit out dogs with getting us through to this point. It's made me realize that we can't be alone, that having pets has kept many people relaxed and sane during a most trying, scary time.
Love All Life, Thank You For Posting! :)
