One of the most important things a dog does is choose his humans. Humans often think they choose the dog. But any good dog knows it’s not true. Even some cats know this.
The human my choose a breeder or shelter to visit, but when I ask my dog friends they all say the same thing.
They know instinctively which human will be a match. And then here’s what you do:
- Approach human
- Wiggle, wag and generally make a fuss
- Stare at human with doting eyes
- If human is sitting, put head on humans lap. They seem to like it.
- I’m a wheaten and wheatens are known for their ability to hug. So of course, run to human and hug them.
At that point they can’t resist.
I love my humans. I always seem to bark about Kristina, so here’s Matt picking a burr out of my paw. All I have to do is look sad, give him my best brown eyed stare, hold my paw in the air, and tada! I am taken care of. I don’t even have to bark.
I could tell the first time I saw Matt that he was the guy for me.
