Checking the weather.

Lately it has either been Hot.. or Raining. Kassa has gotten into a new habit when he feels the weather is somewhat questionable. It used to be that he would follow me right down the stairs into the garage to prepare for our morning outing. Then when we went to go outside the hesitation would occur if it was raining etc.. Now Kassa has gotten smarter than that. Depending on the urgency of his current status or the deepness of his slumber, Kassa will walk right by the door to the basement and wander to the patio door in the kitchen. He takes a moment and surveys the backyard to get a read on the weather, and then makes a decision as to whether he will immediately hop down the stairs or require some extra encouragement. My boy is always calculating risk vs reward.

Ha ha ha! That's a hound for you! Ours are always checking the weather out the back door to decide whether they're walking out to the turn out pen or putting on the brakes in protest!
