First, I hop up on the little ledge that separates the living room from the stairs and I watch her put on her coat.
As she walks toward the stairs I flip over and look adorable. Next, I rub my head against hers and sometimes even reach out my paw.
After a minute of petting she starts walking again, so I hang over the ledge and look pitiful. Lately, I have started following her down the stairs, so that she has to look at my as she's shutting the door. Sometimes, I will even run and hop up in a window and watch her walk the whole way. That way I know I will get extra treats when she gets home!!
