Yesterday was John's first day at his new job (same company, new role). As I said goodbye to him, Kiva acted like she was going with him. She sat very patiently by the front door waiting for him to get her leash and take her along. She even checked out his lunch to make sure that he packed something for her too.
When he knelt down to tie his shoes (and told her that she was staying home) she gave him a big wet kiss on the cheek. I'm pretty sure that she was trying to wish him good luck because she doesn't usually act that way when he leaves for work.
I know she's smart, but I think she knows more than we give her credit for.
