The Dog Whisperer

We have started calling Kayla The Dog Whisperer.  She's always had some sort of special connection with Angel, probably because of all the food she drops down to her.  But at times when we used to have to pick Angel up in order to put her in her crate, if we ask Kayla to do it, the dog just obeys her.  We can be at the other end of the house, but if we ask Kayla to put Angel up, she'll toddle back to our bedroom, open the door to the crate, say "puppah", and usually wave her hand.  Angel usually thinks about it for a second, and then obediently goes into the crate.  We really want to get it on video but I'm sure one of the two won't cooperate if we try.

Morning Ritual

Lately, Katelyn has been sort of obsessed with watching me drive off in the mornings and having me wave to her as I go by.  She starts asking me to make sure I wave to her as soon as I get out of the shower, and reminds me at least 10 times before I leave to make sure I do it.  She's really excited about it, and knows just where to open her shutters and lay on her bed so that she can see the street as I pass by.
