I used to have an etagere by my bed, and on top of the etagere I had a canister of dog cookies, so when the dogs decided it was time for a cookie, the three of them would stare at the canister together. Cracked me up every time.
Then I moved the etagere out (took up too much space) and hung up a wall unit that was too small for the big pink canister; the small green one is still there but on a much lower shelf. So today when they decided as one that it was time for a cookie, they all stared together . . . at the place where the top of the etagere used to be. Where there is absolutely nothing now. Bare white wall.
I haven’t quite figured it out. They used to stare up there until I’d take the pink canister down, so I know they saw the canister. And the canister is still with us, it’s just on a shelf over my head now. Why they’re staring at an empty space is beyond me.
But I still laughed and they still got cookies.
