The other day Dogster published an article titled Do Your Dogs Ever Annoy You?
Go figure that last week I wrote a post about annoying things that my dogs do.
Great minds think alike I would like to say to this, however really great minds, like the fine folks over at Dogster, write their post and then hit publish, where as my brilliant mind lets my post sit in draft waiting for me to get back around to tweek it and add pictures.
Always a disappointment I am.
Anyway, I figured since the topic’s out now and people are talking about it I might as well finally publish my post rather than let it sit in drafts collecting dust along with my other brilliant posts that are awaiting for me to revisit them.
I love my dogs but my dogs are not perfect.
No matter how I portray them here in posts they have their flaws.
Some of them have more flaws than others but we won’t point fingers.
Regardless of that, and regardless of how much I love my dogs, I would be living a life of lies if I didn’t come clean and say that they don’t do things on a daily basis that annoy me.
I really don’y have a list of things, that was a little white lie. There’s just one really, really annoying thing that they do lately that annoys the heck out of me:
They lick each other and it grosses me out, totally.
Now I know by nature, dogs lick each other, but my dogs lick each other to the extreme and they sound like cows eating out of a trough when they do it.
SLUUUURP. SLUUUUURP. SLUUUUURP.
Sherman licks Leroy’s ear, Leroy licks Plungers ear, Leroy licks Sherman’s sore on his leg, Sherman licks Plunger’s pee-pee.
I get it. They’re trying to heal each other.
Whatever. It’s gross and that’s why I pay for antibiotics.
I do what I can to discourage it but sometimes they do it at night and I’m awoken to the sound of a cow mowing down on some grub.
It’s gross and annoying and it makes me gag just a little talking about it now.
Besides the peeing on the garbage can thing, that’s all I’ve got on them right now in the annoying category.
Glad I got that off my chest and came clean.
So how about you? Do your dogs do anything that annoy you or are they perfect as can be?
*Added thought-I wonder if the dogs have a list of things that I do that annoy them? Now that would be a list to see, a short list, but a good list nonetheless.
