Species-specific abilities

The other night at bedtime, I wanted to open a package of cookies without disturbing Rose, who was curled up on the couch in a way that was A, very cute, and B, very far from where I'd hear her snoring like a bulldozer while I was trying to fall asleep. So I turned the water on very loudly in the kitchen sink and opened the package right next to it so the noise of the running water would drown out the crackly food-wrapper sound.

In a flash, there were two pugs in the room with me. It is obviously not that easy to deceive their acute canine senses and the amazing animal mind.

Hell, I can just think about having a bowl of ice cream and the dogs come running. Stupid telepathic canines!
