It rained the other night, with some thunder action.
Naturally, the dog flipped out and started crying and following me around. She also does this when the heat from the shower in the bathroom makes the smoke detector chirpy.
I used to think she just came to me because she sees me as the alpha male. I mean, mostly, she is my wifeís dog. She follows her around, cuddles her, gets pissy when she isnít getting attention from her. Me, she only bothers when she is scared, or needs to go outside.
I started thinking about it though, and thatís not really correct behavior. The alpha dog is the leader, but you donít run to him when you are being a big baby. Especially if the alpha dog gets all pissy because you are chomping at his heals and crying.
She doesnít see me as the alpha. She thinks Iím God. She thinks Iím causing the storms and if she just cries enough, Iíll turn them off.
It makes sense. I turn off the lights in the house. My wife sure doesnít. I close the doors. I shoo and rage and thunder. I also control all sandwiches in the morning. I dish out the punishment. Iím a vengeful deity, who must be pleased and feared.
My wife is mom to her. But Iím Shiva, destroyer of worlds, who wonít share his damn roastbeef and brings down the thunder.
