Pavlov hit the nail on the head with his condition response study and dogs. My dog, the minute she hears the wrapper being taken off the popcorn bag she runs to the kitchen. As the popcorn is being cooked in the microwave she stays in the kitchen. Once the popcorn is poured into a bowl, she will follow me to where ever I go to eat it. She will sit and stare at me, waiting for me to give her a couple of kernels. Popcorn is the only food she acts this way. When I eat meals at the table, half the time she is not in the same room with me. She is not the first dog that I have owned that loved popcorn, growing up I had another dog that would do the same thing stare at you until she got a few kernels. The other thing about my dog is she knows when it is walk time. She knows after dinner when I change clothes and my shoes that it is walk time. She starts gong crazy when I leave the kitchen area and head to the bedroom. She will stare at me from the bedroom door waiting for me to change clothes. When she sees me pull out my shoes she gets hyper and starts running around me in circles. When I open the closet door to get her leash out she is jumping up and down with anticipation. I need to record it some day and send it in to America’s Funniest Videos.
