I am a Robot
Lately, Arthur's been doing this staring thing when it's close to supper time - what used to be the hungry snuggle has become the dinner stare. Um, yes? Can I help you, unblinking automaton dog? Sometimes, if he's feeling obligatory, he'll sit and stare, but more and more, he just stands there without moving and looks at me until I notice him, and then waits for a response. And waits. Without moving. Or blinking. I think he's trying to mind meld me.
Of course, once you say, Are you hungry? He's all smiles and wags.
What an actor.
