Everyone knows that Savannah is part of our family, but sometimes I feel SHE thinks she’s actually human.
We already know she understands things we say, and not just commands like sit, shake and kisses. A couple of nights ago she was lying on her bed in the living room, facing away from us when I mentioned it to Tammy.
Me: I hate it when she lays that way because I like to see her face when she sleeps.
By the time Tammy and I stopped looking at each other and looked down at Savannah she had moved… so we could see her face. It may have just been coincidence, but I like to think it was because she heard, and understood, us.
The other day she put her face in the empty seat next to me in our loveseat recliner which I knew meant she wanted to sit by me. She wouldn’t get up there herself until I had put something down to cover the seat, like we do for her spot on the couch.
She spent the rest of the afternoon next to me.
