1.) It *is* possible for you to drink from a water bowl without having at least one foot in it.
2.) It also *is* possible for the water bowl in the house to actually have water in it for more than ten minutes before you empty it by splashing/digging/drinking.
3.) It is possible for you to refrain from showing me how wet you are by jumping onto me every time you swim, play in the bowl or attack the hose.
4.) People are allowed to sleep without you licking their faces, pulling the covers off of them or barking in their ears. . . especially when they’ve fallen asleep on the couch.
5.) Sometimes the Corgis really, really do mean it when they tell you to leave them alone!
6.) Not all dogs love you. And the dogs who do like you, don’t necessarily like you to bite them.
7.) Shoes are *not* toys.
8.) Ditto for socks.
Anne, this is an Alta-Tollhaus pup! Good luck with 1-3.
It is possible for me to take a shower alone! I promise I won’t drown in there.
Your list made me laugh! sounds like little Kaper is being a handful!
You didn’t mention submerging her head and blowing bubbles?
Handful? Naw!!!! — no more so than anticipated, Julie. She *is* a character, and is just perfect for me at this moment. . . never, ever a dull moment, except when she’s asleep!! LOL
Oh, and BTW — she’s definitely *not* little. I’m glad you told me that her/your lines grow quickly and that I would swear she’s going to be a giant GSD. I’m also hoping she follows protocol and stops growing early!!
We have Klara, formerly known as pastel blue girl. Our list of things we vow to teach Klara would include that humans are not Nyla bones. Was Kaper pink girl or yellow girl?
Yep…water bowls are for playing in…at 8 months old Ivan still loves to take a drink and walk around with water pouring out of his mouth. Our kitchen floor is never dry. We thought our Labrador had a bad “drinking problem” but Ivan’s is worse!!!
Kaper was yellow collar. Pink collar is now Kali, who lives in the Chicago area.
Anne…If you actually accomplish any of those, can you come to my house and teach Roman?
It would be nice if Kenya didn’t have to either try to hop in the water bowl or flip it over
Isa has an interesting technique to let us know when her water bowl is empty: she puts one paw in it, and pushes it and pulls it around the kitchen very aggressively, while whining at it.
Allie bangs it around. Her method works very well nothing like the sound of stainless steel clanging on ceramic flooring at 2 am. Actually, Allie has me trained to make sure I fill her water bowl at night so I do not have to wake up and fill it…good thing for Allie I train so easily.
Like Carole said, it’s a Alta-Tollhaus thing! Kapone lays down to drink because before he does that he splashes water all over and he likes to lay in it. The other day I looked and he was carrying the bowl around and it still had some water in it. I walked into my kitchen the other day and honestly thought I had a pipe break under my sink..I opened the cupboard and everything, there was standing water in front of my sink. And there he was laying there like he had been sleeping and hadn’t done it! Gotta Love em’! They definately have their ways of letting us know what they want, don’t they..and getting it!
