Today, Saturday, after having dinner I realized that Alex did not go to take a nap, but instead stayed in the kitchen with me while I did dishes and put everything away. She kept looking at me as I moved around the kitchen, as if trying to tell me something.
Dexter, on the on the other hand, was heading to the living room where I placed their beds for a nap. Alex kept looking at me with those beautiful brown eyes, but I, the clueless mom that I am, could not figure out what she was trying to tell me. Anyway, once I finished in the kitchen, we both went to the living room where she sat right next to her bed and started looking, ok., staring at me, and then at her bed. I got it! She wanted me to change her bed sheet. Duh! As soon as I did that, Ms. spoiled only child inspected the bed sheet and after passing “her” inspection she went to bed. Alex hates dirty sheets so I change her sheets every other day or as soon as they are dirty, but, I am human after all, and I forgot to do it this time. Not to worry, she is always on patrol for dirty sheets never-failing to alert me that bedding needs to be changed.

Ah–I have one like that-the bed must be just so, fresh water always and has a particular bowl it will only eat out of-what a good Mom you are!
Lol. I am glad I am not the only mom properly trained by my canine child:) Wow, yours is more picky than mine:) We love them anyway:)
Sounds just like my family german shepherd, she will only drink fresh clean water and will not lie down until there is a satisfactorily soft, clean and just right. =) Whereas my loopy pup is happy anywhere as long as its sunny
Wow! Dogs do have preferences and it seems that some are more picky than others, but who cares for we love them anyway:)
That’s just the tip of the iceberg our izzy could give Mariah Carey a run for her money in diva attitude =D but wouldn’t be without them
Maybe because Alex is a girl? I’m a fan of dirty sheets :o)
Lol. It could be:)
Wow, what a great dog. My puppies dirty the bed sheets!!!
🙂 I am well trained by Alex.
wow and I thought dogs don;t mind what/where they sleep on! have a good day 🙂
They do. Every dog, just like every human, has its own particular likes, dislikes, and quirks. Alex will not go to bed if the sheet is dirty, period. But, you know what? I am glad because if I forget, she’ll remind me:)
