One of our little dogs tends to get really excited–very excited–when it is time for a walk, or dinner, or drama , or pretty much anything that looks like it could be fun. She spends plenty of time at a state of excited anticipation–“oh boywhat are we really going to do now?!!?” If we have been quiet for a while, and then get up to doing something, she does her happy dance. And if it is anywhere near the time when something else usually happens, it is a happy dance together with vocals! (Regrettably, one of our other little puppies has learned how much fun this could be and tends to follow her guide. Luckily, the two other dogs tend to accept things as they come).
