To follow my story: (See Someone Asked Me Today How I Deal With...)
Since yesterday morning, my Morkie, Lexxi, has been acting funny. I always pay attention to my dogs, especially when their behavior changes. Very often, dogs are warning people about something. (See Max And Golden Lady)
- A dog alerted a family that their baby stopped breathing. (Rescue Dog Saves Baby)
- Dogs have saved animals' lives. (Dog Saves Dear)
- They've saved families from fires. (Dog Saves Family) Years ago, my friend's dog saved her family from a fire by warning them of wires smoldering in their wall.
- Dogs can warn of diabetes complications, epilepsy seizures, and more. (Girl Gets Dog)
- While some are still skeptical, others truly believe dogs can detect cancer! (Can dogs sniff out Cancer?)
- A dog warned a family about an abusive babysitter. (Abusive sitter)
- Of course we all know dogs also do police work, are in the Armed Forces, do search and rescue, and more.

At this point, I started talking to the dog. Come on dog owners, you know you have done it too! "Lexxi, what's the matter, honey? What? What do you want?" No, I didn't expect an answer, but maybe she'd SHOW me. She kept looking toward the kitchen. I don't speak dog, hence, I said to her, "Fatty, you had your snack, enough." She settled down.

I started wondering if I should go check my parents' side of the house. Is something going on there? There's a garage between us. I went out into the garage and listened and sniffed by their door. The two dogs in there were quiet. I figured if there was a problem, they'd be making noise. I decided against entering, I didn't want to mess with disarming alarms and making dogs bark.
|Lucy, my Chiweenie|
By this point, Lucy was annoyed at all of this nonsense. She walked around following me, very sleepy with this WTF look on her face. She was not barking, she was not perturbed in any way, she was just tired.
Now I got nervous. My anxiety was kicking in full swing. (See What Is Gephyrophobia?) What did this dog know that no one else knew? She didn't look sick or in pain, so I didn't think it was really anything with her. Was a storm coming? When I looked up the weather it said nothing other than a bit of rain. Could something be wrong with the power lines outside near the house? That happened once many years ago and the dogs we had back then kept barking at the wires. My mom called the power company. They came to check it out and sure enough, something was wrong. When three dogs start barking nonstop at wires in the yard and they've never done it before, you pay attention.

I went over to where Lexxi was standing in the hallway between the living room and the kitchen. Even though my blinds were closed, light from the street lamp came in a bit. I realized that light was making a shadow from the broom. THE DAMN DOG WAS SCARED OF THE SHADOW FROM THE BROOM. Apparently, she was afraid all day, as it must have been making different shadows all day long since my blinds were open and the sun was shining in.
