Am Nefarious

Bo is certain I've done Something Terrible to Barb, because after searching the house thoroughly for her and finding her not (because she is in Seattle), he settled down and stared at me with a vague look of studied alarm before finally settling down somewhat, but now he's jumping at every little sound, ears upright.

I dropped Barb off at the airport this morning; while it has been raining on and off since late Saturday, it was rather a shocker when I stopped at Circle K on my way from the airport to work, and it was HAILING. So it was hovering around 85 degrees all of last week, and will be so again by Thursday, but in the meantime, it's startlingly cold for mid-March, to the point where all the Illinois folks who flew in for the Cubs' spring training game on Sunday were distressed by the fact that it was, in fact, warmer in Chicago.

Bo got up and is now watching the door. He glanced at me and wandered off into the dining room, then came back into the living room and looked outside, where he can see her car in the driveway. Doggie confusion.

So anyway, after work I took the truck and Bo down to the garage, dropped off the truck and walked Bo back home. Or he kinda dragged me -- walking up the canal is apparently "OMG I MUST SEE EVERYTHING!" for him.

On Sunday I was taken with the desire to find a Shamrock tablecloth on clearance, so we went places to find one, but there wasn't a St. Patrick's Day ANYTHING anywhere, so we went downstairs to Last Chance (the Nordstrom's outlet) and I bought a pair of Coach boots (COACH! For fifty bucks!) and a pair of grey crochet-top Uggs, both of which I love. I wanted a pair of the Ugg tennies (I have more sneakers than Ellen), but I couldn't find the ones I liked in my size -- there were sparkly gold and sparkly pink ones, both of which were AWESOME, but honestly, where would I wear them? (Once in a great while I CAN be practical.)

I'm tempted to go back and see if they have any more of those sneakers out, though. I know there's some serious turnover in their stock...

Now Bo is circled up on the sofa, WATCHING me.

Well, dogs speaking psychologically are like young infants. And young human infants do believe that if something is gone it's gone forever, that's why playing peekaboo with a young baby can upset them so. They don't get the concept that if they can't see something it still exists. So Bo does probably think she is gone, and that is why dogs get so excited when they you each time you come home. It's a miracle you exist again !!! Or so my psychology teacher tells me :)
For cats I am sure it's the same thing, but they don't make such a big deal about it except for siamese acourse ***cough (Cairo) cough****, and then only about their people.

Yes, I'm sure. I read an article about how dogs (and cats) have about the same outlook/psychological "age" as a three-year-old human. And Bo LOVES Barb, his Very Own Person.

I know the feeling Morgan drives me crazy when my mother is out of the house and he goes looking for her. But most cats don't make such a fuss.

In that case Kaiya (see icon) is either very smart or really doesn't give a crap about me, because she's usually pretty blase when I get home from somewhere. But maybe that's because she's still in her own house? Because she's definitely excited to see me when I pick her up from boarding or doggie daycare. So interesting to contemplate what goes through their heads.

Clearly Bo knows Evil when he sees it. *g*

I'm sorry for poor Bo, but happy for us, 'cause we had dinner with Barb!!!

Well, he's asleep on the bed now. I'm sure he'll be agitating again tomorrow (or later tonight), but I'm glad Barb's having a good time! (Am jealous!) :)
