Embarrasing Pet Behavior

  1. Oct 14, 2008 #1
    We had company Sunday evening and my old dog decided to do her half twist butt in the curtains routine. :redface:

    The problem is pretty clear. It's lying on the floor in the lower center of the picture.

    If my owner gave me milkbone treats, I'd do anything I could to embarrass them, too.

    Try Puperoni's or those sausage snack'em things in a can (geez, I know what all of the good treats look like, but I can't remember what they're called.)

    Or get her one of those 20 pound mammoth bones to supplement the milkbones. She'll still take her revenge out on you, but she'll do it by dropping the bone on your toes instead of embarrassing you when you have company. Well, she might drop the bone on your company's toes, but you'll be too busy rushing them to the emergency room to feel much embarrassment.

    However undignified it might be, it's still a lot better than the 'butt drag across the carpet' routine that my Corgi used to save for guests. :grumpy:

    That doesn't look embarrassing at all! She just wants tummy rubbies! At least she wasn't humping the guests legs or sniffing under their skirts. :uhh:

    So is the treat to get her to stop, or to get her to do the trick so you could get a pic? lol

    If your dog is dragging its bottom along the carpet it may mean that it needs its anal glands drained. I work at a vet clinic...
    If it makes you feel any better, when I was being inspected for my rider level 3 I was explaining to the examiner the various parts of my horse etc, and she promptly turned around, sat on her food bucket which happened to be at a convenient height and proceeded to hump her bucket. I had never seen her do this before. Turns out she was in heat. I had to keep a straight face as I rushed in to pull her out. The 4 ft nothing 800 year old british examiner didn't even flinch, but there was that awful silence when both of us were just standing there like... is this really happening... what do I do? I quickly came up with a clever white lie and told him she does that to relieve back pain and that I would be calling the chiropractor in immediately. Both of us knew better.

    Worse yet, you misspelled "misspelled". Plus "realize", but who's counting?

    Actually the dog has me pretty well trained. I try to get the mutt to eat the milk bones to help keep her teeth clean, but she prefers the good stuff and she knows where to get it.

    Old dog is 14 now and showing some age. Blanca is her name and she was a service dog for my father -in -law for 4 years. When he passed away I decided to let her enjoy being a dog.

    ... " dogs don't know that it's not bacon ". I fed my cat such foods for years , after 7 years of eating that stuff , it had terrible teeth. One day I pondered on whether all cats in the wild have such bad teeth after 7 years , that's when I realized that companies such as Purina actually do not have the best interests for the well being of animals ... in particular their dental health. All of that cheap grease , sugar , and nutrients in crude forms ; my cat's health was decent , it's just that his teeth were not in good shape.

    You're right that many store-bought pet foods contain ingredients that would neve qualify as human food, and really shouldn't be fed to beloved pets. But sugar in cat food - probably not. Cats can't taste sweet.

    Beautiful dog, Edward!

    I'm not claiming that cats actually enjoy or do not enjoy such foods , I'm stating that these store brand foods cause dental problems.
