What do dogs remember
People always say that dogs live in the now, I’m certain this is true. I have also heard that they have no sense of time. When you’re gone for 5 minutes, or 5 hours, it’s all the same to them. This also seems to be true.
But how about their memory in general?
I know for a fact that Torrey and Roxy remember places we have been, and return to. This past week when we stayed at the rendezvous site, they remembered everything about the area. We have our own little camp spot there that we have stayed at for the past 5 years. It’s fixed up, and kinda decorated, and they know it is another “home” spot. Same for our spot in Quartzsite, and when we go to our spot in Teton park.
I also wonder what goes through their mind. We can be a quarter mile away from any given place, and they just KNOW where we are going.
We are back in Al’s moms driveway for a little while, and that is another spot they know. They like the grass here, and the park that is half a block away.
It’s not running wild and free, but they like it just the same.
I wish I could just love every place like they do. Dogs are so easy going, and carefree.
I did find this cool thing to photograph at the park last night. There is an enormous tree stump. 4 feet tall, and probably that much a round. There was this hole in the stump, and what looks like another tree growing inside.
Roxy came and sat on my lap after they had played for a bit. I thought I would try to take our photo with my DSLR.
Talk about shooting blind, LOL.
