I had an interesting thing happen today - I think that I proved that dogs do have some kind of recall/memory.
I was cleaning up around the house and went over to the shelf where Edward's ashes are. I picked up a plastic bag with his collar and some hair that the vet clipped for me to keep.
I pulled out the collar to look at it and jingled it around - just to hear it once again.
Ed had three bells on the collar- I had taken the bells off of the previous collars he had and put them all together - so I could hear him no matter where in the house he was.
As soon as Tucker heard those bells, he was up like he was shot out of a cannon and began to run around the room, looking for the cat!
He did a frantic sweep around the room - he even looked out the window - trying to find the sound. I shook the collar again and he came over and sniffed my hand, but he turned and was off again, trying to find the cat.
It was funny and sad, at the same time. I never realized that they were so in tune with each other and that maybe the dog does miss the Edster.
If I remember, I will try again in a month or two......to see what happens?
