Happy Monday and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

We had a pretty low key weekend and the only one who seemed to be up to any mischief was Sherman.

I know.

It’s very hard to belief that innocent Sherman could ever be up to any mischief but this week proved to be a little tough on him because I went back to work and he is not at all happy about that.

It seems as though Sherman has become accustomed to having me home all day, everyday, and even though my new job is just a few hours a week, enough to get me out of the house and engaging in some social interaction with people, Sherman has no fear of telling me how he does not appreciate me leaving him.


Let me tell you, I get an ear full every time I walk through the door.

Woof, woof, woof, woof, woof, woof, woof, woof.

Then he gives me a kiss.

Then he walks away and seriously ignores me for the next several hours.

I even tried to butter him up with some special treats that I brought home, and he still snubbed me.

Hopefully this is just a phase and he will get back into the groove of me not being home 24/7 sooner than later because I can’t take being snubbed by him for much longer!

So how about you? Does your dog ever snub you?

  1. Since we are home with Bentley & Pierre all day and night, he doesn’t like us to leave him either. However, the first time that we had to kennel him to leave town, he was miffed. We let him outside and he went to the back of the yard and turned his back on us for about ten minutes. It was enough to let us know that he didn’t care much for being left. I dread leaving him for the conference. Hopefully, I’ll have enough swag for him that he’ll forgive me. Are you going? How about Moses & Sherman??

  2. Ha! Yes, I’ve been snubbed, but usually it’s my husband who gets the snub treatment. When he got home Friday after being gone for a week, the girls were not much of a welcoming committee! And Bunny was honked off that he wants to sleep in what she deems HER spot on the bed! rofl It’s good to be loved!

  3. The nerve a that dog! The nerve a you leavin’ him! Sheesh!

    My dogs haven’t given me the silent treatment. They wig out when I get home from anywhere, especially if I’ve been away a few days, and are like super glue.

  4. Congrat’s Jen on the job!!! Harley is the one that has a moment when I leave him home. He waits for me to return and will take something of mine and hide it, or run around with it. He never destroys it, he just won’t let me have it: hat, glove, wallet, you name it. I usually have to sit still and wait for him to come over to me for some attention, then we make up, he returns the stolen property and all is once again “PAWfect” in Doodleville

  5. If I stay away too long, Silas goes crazy when I come home. For fifteen minutes, then he remembers that he’s supposed to resent me for leaving him. From then on, I don’t exist anymore.

  6. Once in a great while Sampson will turn his head away when I lean in to talk to him or kiss him. It doesn’t bother me so much as it bothers my husband. Oh does that bother him.

  7. We don’t get snubbed as much a the stink eye look. Poor Sherman is just a bit confused I’ll wager. He’ll adjust Mum..Newfies are smart. Give him a kiss for me.

  8. I don’t get snubbed, but I always make sure they know I’m leaving. It sounds silly, but they’re always happy to see me when I come back. First I tell them, “Mom has to go to town. Come,” and they follow me to the back door. After I feel them sit behind me at the door, I turn around and say, “You’re in charge now. Don’t let anyone in,” and I leave. Then I treat them as soon as I come back–often with new treats that I got while out. I’m sure this probably makes me a crazy-dog-lady, but it seems to work.
