A blue heeler showed up here last night and spent hours sitting at my front gate staring at my front door. I've seen similar behaviors from heelers before --- I had a friend with a red heeler who would sit at a patio door staring at me like he was trying to *inject* thoughts into my mind and will me to his bidding. :haha: I fed the heeler, but couldn't do much else, as I already have two dogs (which are much larger than the heeler, but which the heeler could easily whoop ) and am committing to a young hound doggie here pretty quick. In any case, throughout the night, I got up to check on the heeler and each and every time, he was sitting at the front gate staring at the front door trying to will me to open it, adopt him and make him the center of my universe. I do wish I could, but I can't. I think, however, a fellow down the road has taken him in. In any case, I'm very curious about this heeler staring behavior. It's really quite extraordinary. Can anyone here with heelers explain this a bit more?
