There’s research that shows that dogs do sense our moods and behavior, even smell our emotional state. I’ve learned this from personal experience from our dogs: Casey, Alex, Bella and Abby.
Casey, a Staffie, would sit perfectly still next to me when I got angry. Funny, one time I told Cynthia that I wasn’t angry, but Casey sold me out. Traitor! Alex, a pit bull mix, would get close to me and shiver. Bella, a pit bull mix, would try to make herself small. And Abby, a Beagle/Bulldog mix, runs toward me and with a concern look on her face looks me in the eyes.
Dogs are amazing teachers, and living with them gives us the opportunity to live a balanced and healthy life. Do you think your dog senses your moods/emotions?

Abby, “Mom, is it lunch time already?”
This past weekend our family continued to unpack boxes, and as I was coming up from the basement, this is what I saw. I just couldn’t stop laughing.
Abby loves to smell the boxes before and after we open them. Why? That’s something only our girl Abby could answer for you. We hope you enjoyed your 4th of July!
