Im pretty convinced my son's dogs (sherlock and harleyquin) know my daughter in law is pregnant. they have totally changed their behaviour toward her!
I generally take treats around for my furry grandkids. So im always enthusiastically greeted. I had lamb bones on w/e, arrived, greeted as usual, but the female pup gave her bone to my daughter in law, just gave it to her! didnt even chew on it, just gave it away? She loves bones normally. And was only a hour or so off feed time, so hungry too.
then whilst im visiting, another visitor, their friend arrived, and was invited him, there was only me and my daughter in law in the house, and sherlock decides from whilst my son it out, no visitors in the house! and is gaurding, barking at friend whom has visited often before.
Apparently, he's gotten very protective of her over the last few weeks, barking to scare folks off that approach on pavement, never done this before.
they didnt resource gaurd her from me, nor did they bark at me. But i did have bones i guess.
Then they were fed. Both ate heartily, and the bitch came into the lounge, and regurgitated the food on my daughter in laws foot. She's been doing this for a week, and they refeed her later.
How odd or unusual is this?
