I'm beginning to think our 14 month old German Shepherd has some mental problems.
He spent over an hour staring at a reflection on the grass caused by a plastic bird feeder. And it wasn't like he was just lying on the ground looking at it. He was in full pounce mode. Whenever a breeze came, the reflection moved. He was right on it.
"Dog, what are you doing?" I didn't expect and answer, but I thought I might break his hypnotic train of thought.
He didn't even look at me.
My daughter tried. "Schultzey Wultzey...Come to sissy!"
His eyeballs stayed glued to the reflection.
What a goofball! Finally, after about an hour and twenty minutes, he let out a very long mournful howl. (I didn't know German Shepherds did that, either.) The reflection was just too much for his little brain to handle.
(Anybody know a good dog shrink? I may need to find him some professional help.)
