On the observational skills of dogs.

Anthropomorphism alert.

As I was preparing to take Morphy for his morning evacuation, I decided, on the spur of the moment, and on account off the horrible wet weather, to wear my cycle clips so that my trousers wouldn't get so muddy. Up to that point, he had been in bouncy-goodo-we're-going-for-a-walk mode, but as soon as he saw the cycle clips he stopped being so and went to give Dez a hug and looked at me in a hang-dog way. Presumably he has noticed that cycle clips mean I'm going out on the bike, and therefore without him.

Or maybe he just didn't want to be seen with a bloke going for a stroll with bicycle clips on! :)

No, I don't think so because once I got the lead off the shelf he quickly reverted to type.
