Yesterday on our walk in the forest I noticed an opportunity to go hiding from the dogs.
So in my hiding place, I was able to see the dogs trying to find me. It was also recorded but I was not expecting it to take so long to find me (over 7 minutes).
In the past, when Eddie and Alfie were still around, the dogs found me much faster. Alfie’s nose was amazing and also Eddie took the time to use his nose instead of running around like crazy.
Well, the youngsters Mickie and Hanie have had more than enough energy this spring. So they didn’t use their noses and instead were running like crazy trying to find me. I was surprised Minnie joined the running. I was expecting at least her to use her nose.
So in my hiding place, I was “reporting” the search and that was by whispering so that the dogs cannot hear me.
Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) is a soft whispering (among other things). As I am whispering in the video, let it be ASMR. Do not take it too seriously. Flatties are all about fun, so why not the owners too.
Here is the long (over 7 minutes) video of me hiding from the dogs and whispering about their search (in Finnish).
When getting back home, the dogs were quite tired so this exercise actually helped to calm them down, even though they did not use their heads.
