How You Know Something Is Interesting

At a glance, Hu-Dad can know something is interesting to the ever observant dogs. Can you identify how in this photograph?

Landon to the left and Frankie on the right.

As you see above, Landon and Frankie are both watching something just outside of the fence of Sibe Quentin. Frankie Suave has his usual cool demeanor – laying on the deck with his head propped in the official snooter rest.

Landon, on the other hand, gives a very clear sign of his intrigue. Can you tell what Landon’s telltale is?

Landon's telltale is his tail. It's not curled up like normal.

    Mom sez: Ebby does the same thing as Landon. The moment her attention is “tweaked”, the tail goes right down, the sure sign she is “on red alert”!

    Fluffiness can’t lie. It’s a quick sign of something is up.

    Haha Kodas tail will slowly almost undetectable, lower, if he’s outside already he will twitch his back feet in the “ready to run mode” lol
