Dogs senses are amazing

We have two dachshunds and like most dachshunds, they are food driven.

We feed them twice per day, just a small scoop of food in the bowl, and keep them lean. They know when it is close to feeding time and are on high alert for me to move from my home office.

I don't wear shoes in the house in the summer. I was in socks (fully clothed!) and deliberately walked quietly toward the laundry room where we feed them. Our house has a concrete floor, (slab and stem walls) so no creaking floorboards. I was on the carpet of my office floor and as I reached the edge of the doorway to go into the hall and stepped onto the wood floor that is glued to the concrete, I see a dogs head pop around the doorway of the living room.

Somehow he sensed me moving quietly. He had been the living room in a dog bed near my wife's feet. Yea, they have a tough life. It is a good thing they are not spoiled.
