sometimes, i like to test oliver’s level of intelligence and understanding by saying random names to him. i do that to make sure he knows that his name is oliver (lol). i know he understands when his ears perk up and look right at me when i say oliver.
so about 5 minutes ago, while he was dead asleep, i started saying random names aloud; steve, matt, stephanie, james, oscar…. and then i said my ex’s name, and oliver woke up and looked right at me while wagging his tail…
that broke my heart a little bit….
