There’s No Looking Back

My apartment here in Chicago faces the street.  The couch where Eko normally hangs out is on the opposite side of the apartment from the street-facing window.  Normally when I leave the house without Eko he is right there on the couch – where I assumed he stayed until I got back.  However, the other day as I got in my car I had the funny feeling I was being watched…

Everything seemed normal, but let’s take a closer look

Hm, I don’t remember leaving that one curtain open.  Time for a little CSI-photo-enhancement

Just a little closer…

Little did I know that every time I leave the apartment without Eko he runs to the window to keep an eye on me.  Now that I have noticed, it’s hard not to look back when I leave.  That being said, I feel like he’s giving me the “how could you leave me!” sad puppy face, so I don’t want to look back and feel guilty.

What I much prefer is looking up at the window on my way into the building.  I guess when Eko hears a car door shut on the street he comes to check to see if it’s me.  Nice to know I’m being looked out for!

 Does anyone else have a pet lookout at home?

Dogs are known to be creatures of habit and repetition. Trust me, Will, Eko has your schedule down pat. When you leave he is sending his love with you. When you return he already knows your getting close to home before anyone else can hear the car. Those are part of the great life we have with our 4-legged, free rent, room mates. Sure makes life grand for me and Tuffy-Cat.
