Have a pet? Congratulations, you’re a superhero!

In the movies you need to come from another planet or be bitten by a radioactive spider to get super powers. In the real world though, if you want a “spidey-sense” all you need is a pet. “What’s that, boy? Timmy fell down a well?” Here’s
In the movies you need to come from another planet or be bitten by a radioactive spider to get super powers. In the real world though, if you want a “spidey-sense” all you need is a pet.

“What’s that, boy? Timmy fell down a well?”

Here’s how it works. Around here, when things are quiet, things are good. When things are quiet I turn around and see this:

A content and relaxed pup

While “quiet” is good, anyone with a pet will tell you there can definitely be too much of a good thing. My spidey-sense starts tingling when intuition tells me it’s “too quiet.” The scene is usually the same: I’m furiously typing, oblivious to the world – my typing slows to a stop as intuition hits – I turn to see Eko’s gone – I dash from my chair calling his name frantically.

Inevitably, mischief is afoot.

Maybe I forgot to clean up my plate and Eko’s taking a gander at leftovers

Or maybe he’s used brute force to break into his food. (I’ve since bought a dog food container with a lock!)

These boots didn’t survive, but my intuition has undoubtedly saved me hundreds of dollars in damages because I caught Eko before he could get in trouble

Intuition is an invaluable tool for anyone with a pet. It’s not only good for preventing mischief, it’s also how we know when our pets might need a longer walk or some extra affection. It’s how we know our four-legged buddies are “off” and need to be whisked to the vet. And in all these cases when people ask “How did you know?” the answer is always the same, “I just did.”

I think I have a pretty honed spidey-sense but soon enough my powers will be put to the test. Hope they’re up for the challenge!

“Cute little me, make trouble? Never…”

Has spidey-sense intuition ever helped save the day for you and your pets?
