She can't see very well, she can hardly hear, and she gets confused easily.
But she has no trouble telling me that she has needs NEEDS! that are not being met:
Those needs include but are not limited to chicken jerky, Biljac, marrow bones or a long walk.
Luckily she doesn't do this all the time, and if she really starts to annoy me with this routine, it's not too hard to make her stop. I make her lie down and tell her to stay. Pretty soon she forgets whatever it was she was demanding. Her short-term memory just ain't what it used to be.
