Sunday morning. Enzo and I are walking along the main road, near where we live. A convertible car is parked in the car park of the local pub, with the soft roof not fully closed. A gap of about six inches. We hear our two humans discuss why, and then we see a small white dog in the back. He barks at Enzo and me.
Then the dog moves to the driver’s seat, stands on his hind legs and uses his front paws to sound the car horn. A long loud continuous noise. Two humans come out of the pub, approach the car and say something to their dog. Their dog moves away from the steering wheel and retreats to the passenger seat. The dog’s humans speak a few friendly words to my humans, then they return to the pub.
Their dog looks at Enzo and me again, moves back to the driver’s seat and this time beeps the horn with a series of short blasts. An obvious degree of urgency in his actions as we walk away. Beep...beeep...beeep...beep.... As we look back we see the dog’s humans return and take their dog out of the car. We continue our morning walk but just wish we’d had a camera with us to video what we saw!
Have a wonderful Sunday.
PS For all my dog and cat friends out there, how have you trained your humans to respond to you?
