My dog’s walk memory

On the weekends, Kelly and I are sometimes slack at getting Rocket out for his daily walk. Whenever we neglect to walk him, he will spend the rest of the day nagging us about it. It never fails.

I’ve noted that the dog can forget many things. He can forget where he left his bone, he can forget that he hasn’t been fed, but he never ever seems to forget that he hasn’t been out for a walk.

It makes me wonder just how developed his sense of smell is. I’m guessing it probably takes up half of his brain.
