    Java is our 11 y.o. german shepherd/ chow /rottie mx She is the smartest dog we've ever had! She loves Greenies, but only gets them at Christmas, they give her gas and are expensive, besides. We hung the stockings over the fireplace mantel, and a few days ago I noticed her examining the stockings, then wagging and acting excited when she saw me. Nope, nothing in there, I assured her, but maybe Santa will bring you Greenies again this year! More excited behaviour from her. I just klnda passed it off to coincidence til I saw her doing the same thing this morning, checking out the stockings. I asked her if she was looking for Greenies and was answered by wild excited barking. Then she went to HER stocking, (that she shares with the cats) climbed onto the hearth, and pointed at it. Funny that she would remember, let alone know which one her treats would be in! We got a few pics, may include them later....just thought i'd relate this, we thought it was funny. [​IMG] oh, and what was more interesting...the stockings have been hanging there since 12/1, but I just now noticed her doing that these last few days before Christmas! timings, just a bit off, but still pretty remarkable, I thought!

    [​IMG] Are you SURE there's nothing in the stocking??? Maybe Santa sent an elf w/an early gift??? That's sweet that the furry members of your house get a stocking too..hehehe. We get new toys for ours too, but they don't have their own

    Nothing in the stocking. Maybe it still smells like Greenies? is that possible? Dunno she is a very smart dog, and has a big vocabulary.

    It cracks me up that Greenies gives her gas...
