Out And About W/ Abbey

M’kay, so an interesting occurrence: I took my car in to have a flat tire repaired, and had Abbey with me. The place was really loud and busy, and we’d been waiting for an hour or so. Abbey was having a grand ol’ time, getting attention and treats from people. Out of nowhere, seemingly, she gets agitated and starts barking. Which was both embarrassing after everyone commented on her good temperament and behavior, and weird because she’s not a mindless yapper, if she barks she has a good reason. One of the employees comes in from the garage and comments ‘You know they’re moving your car now and she knows it. Smart dog.’

So it makes me wonder- what was her motivation? It wasn’t her happy ‘I want to go for a car ride’ behavior. It was her suspicious ‘this is wrong’ bark, which I haven’t actually heard since we ran into an angry drunk on a late night summer run last year. Did she think someone was stealing my car? Is that even a concept a dog can understand? Pretty impressive she could even hear them moving the car outdoors and at the back of the building with all the noise and air ratchets and what not going on.
