Patience, Please! She’s Sniffing.
Your dog is reading her world, not trying to exasperate you.
Imagine if you came across a headline like “World Peace Declared” or “Your Neighbor Threw a Block Party and You Weren’t Invited.” Then, just as you were getting to the juicy part, someone pulled your head away and you couldn’t learn the pertinent particulars. That’s just how it is for your dog when you yank her head away from a blade of grass that she has been sniffing for what seems like forever. Why? Because while we read our world largely with our eyes, dogs read that same world with their sense of smell.
