SmallRubyTouringHat on Reddit bought a crystal ball and thought nothing of it aside from it being a decoration.
However, Baja the Chihuahua had other ideas for it.
Baja would stare into the ball intensely and for a long time the family couldn’t figure out why. It could not be for looking into the future, could it?
“Last week I got a crystal ball for decoration and set it out on my copy of ‘A Thousand and One Nights’ by the window,” SmallRubyTouringHat told The Dodo. “The next evening I noticed that he kept getting up to look at it.”
Baja’s mum described him as being fascinated by the ball but she did not understand much about why he cared about it at all.
As days passed and Baja adamant with his crystal ball, the mum decided to investigate and found that there was something Baja was seeing in the crystal ball.
Little did they know, the dog actually used the ball to look at passers-by. This is because he’s an excellent watchdog but because their living room is below street level, he could not fully observe anybody that nears their house.
“We usually only open the lower part of the blinds so that people can’t see in from the street,” SmallRubyTouringHat said. “He can’t see out of the window because of this.”
She realized that due to the refraction in the crystal ball, Baja was able to see the sidewalk.
To test her theory, she looked at the crystal ball from where he sits and true enough, he saw what he saw – people walking around.
The crystal ball actually broaden his vision and enhanced his skills as a watchdog.
“He’s really chill and snuggly when it’s just the family at home,” SmallRubyTouringHat said. “He’s a total lapdog and just wants to be around everybody. He’s a little wary of strangers, which is why he likes to watch the ball.”
What once was meant to be a decoration is now a source of happiness for the family dog. With this ability, Baja has peace of mind knowing he can protect his family.
Baja’s mum said he would often go to check the crystal ball and it always amuses the family.
