Seriously-- How do they know that there is something in the bag for them?

I bought a new toy for my dog Haley while I was shopping yesterday. She stood by the bag with the toy out of the bag. She just knew it was there.

Linus Pauling once was asked how he had so many good ideas. He said, "Well, I just have lots of ideas. Some of them are bound to be good."

My cat follows the same philosophy. She is certain that any bag must hold something good for her, and every time I open the fridge or enter the pantry she will get a treat. Sometimes it turns out to be true.

DI, dog intuition. It's a thing.

This is my cat's philosophy too! She adds in an extra bit of meowing to see if that helps with getting a treat.

Amora thinks the toys are hers even when they’re not!

One time I had gone Christmas shopping with a friend and came home and put the bags in my bedroom. My parents live in another state so I was staying with them for the holiday. We were sitting in the living room and I told my mom I got a toy for the cat. Literally the second I said that, he went back to my bedroom and started digging around in the bags! He found it and pulled it out!

Lisa, it is hard to tell the difference between some dog and baby toys! When Haley was adjusting to us, I bought her a toddler doll because I already knew she didn't like squeakers and I wasn't sure if she would chew buttons and eyes. The doll was perfectly safe for her.
