So here is the traditional routine: I get up in the morning or I come home from work. I get dressed or change out of work clothes. Here is what happens...
The dog, Bookie
(rhymes with "spooky") comes into the bedroom. He sniffs the pants I am putting on. The smell tells him whether they are inside/stay home clothes (Yay! He jumps around and gets excited) or go out clothes (Shucks! He slinks away).
I usually stop by the restroom to use the bathroom and he follows me in there and waits. However, lately, he leaves the bedroom while I'm still dressing and goes into the bathroom and takes up his station as if I'm already on the toilet.
He stands there with his back to the bathroom door and seems surprised when I walk up behind him, as if he thought I was already in the bathroom.
He does this about one out of eight times or so now on a regular basis. I would think he was anticipating my move from the bedroom to the bath, but if so, why not every time and why is he surprised when I come into the bathroom? And if he is anticipating my move, why doesn't he stand waiting facing the bathroom door instead of the toilet?
Thanks much. I can't wait to hear what you think. Oh - he is 18ish but still mentally sharp AFAIK.
