Whenever I come home from work Spirit always greets me with a ton of excitement as if I've been gone for days. As a matter of fact it seems to happen if we separate for over an hour, like at the groomer. I don't fully understand the logic behind such a regular occurrence. After a year together it's not like I'm suddenly not going to come back, but that's something I'll figure out later.
Last night I ran a quick errand and came back. It literally took only 16 minutes to go and come back. When I stepped in the door she gave me a greeting as if I'd been gone all day.
Do dogs have a different sense of time than people?
