I was quite upset this morning when I went out to feed the chickens and found a henhouse filled with feathers and one chicken. All of the other chickens were killed and taken. Mike thinks it was a raccoon. I don’t know how it got in the henhouse.
I was all teary eyed and a bit of a surprise happened. Goofy McGoofface became really affectionate and wanted to sit on me. He pawed on me and tried to lick my face. That is pretty unusual for him. I am thinking that this little dog is emotionally intelligent and knows when I am upset.
Sure there are all kinds of videos of really smart and exceptional dogs, but I never thought I would have one. Kira is emotionally intelligent but she is not a particularly affectionate dog so it balances out. But Goofy is an affectionate dog and he is showing that he is more than a furry meat bag.
