You know, it's funny. I thought I *knew* dogs. People ask me all the time about strange behaviors and I always had an answer for everyone, but when Bug did that, even I was stumped. I have insisted for years that dogs don't do anything out of spite, but I can see why someone could mistake that for spite. I *assumed* (and I hate that word lol) that Bug and Bubble Gum were arguing over the bed. This really does make a lot more sense. All these years and I never figured this one out.
Dogs don't understand why we leave them to go to work every day, they don't understand why we come home stressed sometimes (more now than ever). I guess it makes sense that they would show signs of feeling vunerable and perhaps even frightened at times. Who knows what may have been going on that night when I was at work - the neighbors could have been loud (again) or shooting off illegal fireworks (*sigh* again), or that tree branch could have been rubbing on the window again - god knows, it woke me up last night and startled both of us. Need to do something about that. Shoot, if it breaks through the window, I might wet the bed myself.
Funny, there's still so much I need to learn about my best friends.
