Dogs have those “moments” too!
We got home and the first thing I always do is let Ginger out of her pen.
I open her crate and go to walk out the door. I realize I don’t have 4 paws following behind me or a dog darting out to the living room enjoying her freedom.
Ginger doesn’t realize I opened her crate. Doesn’t realize she is free again. I say “Come on” “Come on, Ginger!” She just stares at me.
I go up to her crate and she still doesn’t come out. Excited to have me come over to her. She puts her front paws on the crate and licks my hands through the crate.
I show Ginger with my foot she can be free. Then…
There is the Ginger I know!
Senior moment? Foggy brain for a moment? Groggy from just waking up?
