    She has one of those really cute faces that she uses to get into all sorts of mischief and get into trouble, but you can't stay mad because look at that face!

    Nah, he'd wait forever for me to wake up. This one however, wouldn't even wait for me to get cold.

    I've gone back and forth on this one many times. How fascinating it would be to actually see into their wee minds for just a glimpse of what's actually going on in there. But then I settle on *not* wanting to know because there's no way he could possibly live up to the character that my wife and I have invented for him. Kind of like the thing where you don't actually want to meet your heroes right?

    Both dogs and cats are testing the widely circulated (among dogs and cats) theory that if you stare at a human long enough, the human will do something interesting*. The interesting thing may well involve food and/or travel. It's definitely worth being vigilant even if the human is sleeping. Sooner or later, there is a payoff. Dogs tend to be more patient than cats. Cats have a theory that things may speed up if they paw at the human. There are no cats running the control group on that experiment, so they do not know whether their intervention speeds things up or not.

    *Note that even never waking up and then starting to stink is still an 'interesting' result from their perspective.

    I will give you my very non expert opinion...

    The pups, just like mine and most other people's look to you as their leader... you are the alpha at all times, and when not sleeping they are constantly observing us as their leader.

    They are pack animals and they follow their leader to the very end! That is why they are "man's best friend".

    This is also why a dog usually responds better to one person...either husband or wife or whatever, they listen to and observe more diligently the person they deem Alpha.

    They are awaiting your very passive guidance simply through observing you....And it makes them feel calm and safe when they can directly see you.

    Then again it could just be the bacon grease in my beard they want?

    My boy likes to sleep on the couch with his neck in the "broke" position...

    You are absolutely right about pack order.
