I went to the back yard to find the MOTHER of all holes dug under my fence... the little buggers must have dug all night long to get out (they had a great time though).
Honestly, some days I am sure we all feel like doing this, or even happily give them away GRATIS to the first stranger that walks by.....but just look into their big brown eyes and I turn into a pile of poo goo.

(no animals were harmed during the making of this picture. Just maybe a little loss of dignity)

Photo of the day attached. Harry was 3 months old..... and lucky to live to 4.


Looking back, it's still one of my favourite stories to tell....... so no matter how bad the little buggers are at the time. You will love them again eventually.
Aw, you can't help loving that cheeky mug.

Re: That D*mn Dog & Other Pet Frustrations

My dear old dog Dougal, who was a little sod at the best of times, once managed to get onto the dining room table (he was only a Cairn terrier, but a cunning and agile little bugger) after a party and negotiate his way between wine glasses and coffee cups without disturbing a single one of them, before gobbling his way through the butter, cream and sugar (in that order) and being discovered looking very innocent, despite a newly acquired "beard", standing by the back door as if nothing had happened at all.

I don't half miss him.

Re: That D*mn Dog & Other Pet Frustrations

I've lost a couch so far.. shredded ribbons
They're working on the 2nd.
No matter how many scratching boards and gadgets and gizmos I've got floating around, the best place to scratch is the back of the sofa and the best place to upchuck those hairballs is on my living room carpet.

And sometimes if we're out, I'll find a nice little caca delicately hidden in the bathroom carpet just beside the clean and welcoming litter box.

But we also get wet nose nudges and purring at 4.30 am , and these two always know if one of us is not feeling well.. we get followed around and sat upon and purred at. Whoever needs a cuddle gets one from them

Lulu, that of gas, almost dying, running away and expressing anal glands (I won't link those threads) got into the trash today and feasted on kidney beans while I was at work. Imagine my welcome home.

I am not feeling love for her even though she is cute, harmless and utterly daft. She is only 3 and should live 15-17 years. Friends from NYC have recommended Prozac. I kind of thought it was rude they suggest I take it because of a dog, but no, they meant it for her.

It's not like I can marry her off, hope she'll go to a good university or even think she'll become potty trained. Yeah, yeah, I know a pet is for life, but those 2.5 kgs are driving me nuts.

Please share, I can't be the only one with a frustrating pet.
Too late,far too late, imagination kicked into overdrive again, just before having my tea.
And I had almost forgotten...alllmost forgotten!

Re: That D*mn Dog & Other Pet Frustrations

My Bernese Mountain/Labrador cross could fart for Switzerland and England. They left her arse and hung like a heavy cloud over the bed, what really bugged me was she'd sniff her hind quarters after expelling one and vacate the room for a while!

Re: That D*mn Dog & Other Pet Frustrations

My naughty almost 2 year old cat awakes me every night to ask for cuddles, any time of the night, sometimes several times
I know I shouldn´t touch her, otherwise she will keep on asking for them whenever she feels like; but I can´t help as I need to stop her from meowing!

Argh, and during the day, when is me the one that wants to touch and cuddle her, she runs away

Re: That D*mn Dog & Other Pet Frustrations

Lily was an expert at the SBD (silent but deadly) fart. She'd fart and we would run screaming from the room, eyes watering.

Then we changed her diet, to something without corn and wheat, so basically she eats meat and rice, chopped up veggies and fruit. Not a single fart for months. Not even the anxiety fart in the car. (Now there's a heart stopper). Maybe the dogs are really in cahoots with the food companies to make food that encourages vile farts.

Breathe easy.

@ creativepink: Lulu is nuts, anyone that has had the pleasure of being in her company is shocked to discover I am not exaggerating one bit. She has adhd and is autistic (to describe her in human behavioral terms) and has 3 thoughts: "runaway", "food" and "cat". This is the dog that tries to jump in the toilet because she thinks "num, nums". Getting to those beans would have been impossible for anyone, 'cept her once she set her brain cell to it.

You see, I've another Chi that is exceptionally well-behaved and can learn anything within 3 treats; Lulu at 3 has not matured-out and never will.

ps. I just stepped in pee again, always fun at 0430!

(let's keep this thread light-hearted if possible)

Sorry J. L-P Then I must congratulate you for the good deed in taking care of your little maniac.

Hope all is well and give her a little kiss for me... I lost my 10 year old dog last November due to cancer, and believe me, I miss her tons....

I think my dog has yet to master the art of farting and blaming He still turns around in (I dont know if its mock) surprise when he does one of those loud and proud ones to sniff his own bum like "wazzat sound?? was that really me???"

Re: That D*mn Dog & Other Pet Frustrations

Is it just me, or do others believe that a dog`s greatest wish would be to be able to talk. we have a fantastic Labrador who Im sure just wants to communicate.

Yeah, ours paid rapt attention when I read Dallas Clayton's Awesome Book to her. You'd think she's almost human.

So to put paid my lofty ideas, a couple of days later, this Lab ran to the side of a field and starting eating the foulest looking goop. I had to drag her away and wipe her mouth (good job I carried industrial-strength tissues in my pockets). Stunk to high heaven. Took her home, put her in the tub and washed out her mouth for 5 minutes. I was traumatised for days after that and avoided the area for a week.

im afraid Labs do that. What I don`t get is when strangers come up to your dog in the street and make a fuss then kiss the mutt on the face. Ive just watched and failed to prevent my hound eating Cowsh*te in a field and then some nutter wants to kiss the dog on the nose. I just let them do it and think to myself NOOOWAAAY!

Re: That D*mn Dog & Other Pet Frustrations

My ex (a goofy Newf called Newton) used to particularly enjoy gathering frozen horse sh*it on the Allmend in winter; he'd stuff as much as he could into his quite considerable, slobby cheeks and then walk primly "to heel" behind me until we got home (his logic being extremely limited, he probably thought I wouldn't notice the difference in behaviour)

Obviously, with the warm humidity of his jowls doing their thing to the frozen horse poo, it would start to melt in his mouth and slowly drip down his quite considerable hairy chest, until only a mushy little bit remained that had to be swallowed quickly. I always considered this to be his least endearing trait

Re: That D*mn Dog & Other Pet Frustrations

Jimmy the cat has decided, now he has reached the grand old age of 10, that he will not go down his cat ladder anymore (he comes up it). So Gubbins carries his lordship down the ten steps to let him out of the main front door.

That's ok. And the neighbours ring the doorbell when he comes back in.

Lately, he has started rattling the keys in the door at 5 in the morning to be let out. So I took the keys out of the lock. Oh no, cunning Jimbo then starts scratching at the door, then jumps all over me.

I let him out, open the kitchen window where the ladder arrives, and 5 minutes later he is asleep while I am sipping the first coffee of the day... And he sleeps until midday... He does have a litter tray for emergencies...

At least it gets me up early...
