I have a dog that is part German Shepherd and part Border Collie. She is an adorable dog that is my inspiration for Rosie a dog in my book, the Puzzle Keeper. It is never a good idea to share pets’ names on the web since people use them as security questions so for that reason I will refer to her as Rosie.
Rosie acts more like a human than a dog. She sleeps with a pillow. She refuses to walk on wet grass, and spends her time with humans instead of dogs at the dog park. She’s even smart enough that she learned how to use her nose to press the power button on my computer to turn it off. It’s funny now, but the last time she did it I was almost finished writing a paper for school.
There is one way that she tries to act like a dog. She likes to try to chase animals. She once cornered a cat. I was surprised since she has really bad arthritis and doesn’t run far or fast. Lucky for the cat, she knew to chase it but not what to do when she caught it. She just stood there wagging her tail.
Recently she has a new target. In the backyard, she would smell the ground and pick something up with her teeth. When we gets inside she would drop something black on the floor. When I went to pick it up it moved. It was a huge spider. Rosie looks at the spider and than at me all to pleased with herself. She would then strut into the kitchen to wait for a treat. Rosie has done this several times in the last few weeks. The funny part is that if there is a spider in the house she runs away from it and hides, yet she’s the one braining them in.
