Every Morning at Exactly 7:45 A.M.

Molly goes to one of the many dog parks in our area every morning with my husband. Molly knows the exact time she and my husband will depart for the dog park. My husband and I sit and chat over coffee in the morning, and Molly, at exactly 7:45 a.m., plants her little doggy self in front of my husband and stares at him without moving a muscle. When Molly stares at my husband every morning, I am amazed at her laser focus. Nothing I say to Molly will break that stare. When my husband finally stands up, the stare is no more, and off dog and owner go to the wonderful world of the dog park. Molly has stared at me many times to get me to do something she desired at the time. Her longest, timed-stare directed at me was a 35-minute stare. That pup has staying power.

She is the first dog we have had who can hold a stare for as long as it takes.

I had a feeling Grady would be a master of the stare-down too. It can be quite unnerving if the stare goes on for a long time.

I know that stare well since my pup Mush does the same thing, It's hard for me to avoid those staring eyes

When she stares like that, it sort of freaks me out. Mush has mastered the stare too!!!

She really can. She will come to get me for her evening thyroid pill at 7:15 p.m. since it is wrapped in Braunschweiger, so that's a treat.

When we had Kelly, my father left the house at 6.30am for the morning outing, with the dog. Meanwhile, he bought the newspaper. Only recently, when the dog became older, it wanted to get out of the house later.

I can see why Kelly wanted to leave a bit later due to being older. Dogs really can tell time, it seems.

Molly knows when it is time to go to the dog park and lets your husband know it is time.

She does it every single morning. If I utter one word while she is staring, she will not turn her head to look at me, but she will move her eyeballs in my direction, for just a second, to send a signal that I should keep quiet.

I think I would prefer the dance over the stare. The stare gets kind of creepy.

I think she must be smarter than the other dogs we have had since the other dogs did not tell time like Molly.

I was reading a book on the couch, and she just kept staring at me. I kept time by looking at the clock on the shelf. She wanted me to go outside and pay stuffed babies with her.

That reminds me of Eddie the dog on Frasier..also a big starer! My cat also does the staring thing at times..I think he is usually trying to figure out what I am up to..

I remember Eddie. If I say anything to her while she is staring at my husband, she will not move her head, but she will move her eyeballs to look at me which means that I need to be quiet and not say one word.

I'm quite familiar with staring eyes, thank you very much. Apparently, not only Molly stares. I won't mention any names. He is napping at last!

I was reading a book on the couch, so I was able to time how long that stare lasted. Finally, after 35 minutes, I went outside to play with her. Just had to see how long she would stare at me.
