Dogs Caught in the Act!

Page 6

 

NO Spike, this food is all mine!

"The following story is of Allie the Boxer and Spike the Bulldog. Allie was a pretty dominant alpha female. A few years after this page was written, I discovered Cesar Millan (the Dog Whisperer) and was able to get all of Allie's dominant behaviors under control, including her attacks on other dogs. Thank you, Cesar!"

Allie the Boxer does not like to let her brother Spike the Bulldog eat. The two of them are constantly fighting over the food bowl. Allie is a female and Spike is a male. I have to say it is Allie who is the major instigator. Spike the Bulldog is pretty laid back. Allie is a typical female dog, wanting to be the boss and have things her way. If Spike really decides he wants to eat he puts her in her place, however they usually just growl at one another during meal time.

Allie will do anything to keep Spike from being able to eat.

If I eat it all, he wont be able to have any....

The first thing she does is try to eat all of the food herself.

Darn, I am pretty full. Can't eat it all. Guess I'll have to do away with it

Of course there is too much food in the bowl for her to do that so she resorts to the only other thing she can think of...getting rid of that food bowl!

Allie Pushing the bowl with her snoot

She starts pushing it around with her snout. She often spills her water in the process.

Allie pushing the bowl with her snoot Yes, I think this shall be a good spot. Spike's not allowed in here!

Here Allie has successfully pushed the food into the bathroom, a place neither dog is allowed to go. They are not allowed in the carpeted parts of the house. Allie will sneak in there; Spike is usually good and stays out.

You hear that Spike! Your NOT allowed in here! Darn! Why does mommy always put MY food back? You know how much work it was to get it in the bathroom?!

I put the food bowl back and tell Allie to get out of that room.

I'll put it under this here table

So she pushes the bowl under the kitchen chairs. Once again I put the bowl back where it belongs.

Ok, Mommy keeps putting my food back. I think I'll dump it down the steps. Mommy can't put it back if I do that!

Allie is still stuck on getting rid of that bowl, so she decides to push the bowl down the basement steps! The best spot for her and worst spot for me!

Push!!

Allie is nosing the bowl closer to the steps.

Push!! Push!! Almost there. But Wait! Mommy just told me to STOP IT!  DARN! She is always getting in the way! I almost got rid of it. Bummer

One more push and this bowl would have been GONE! She's pushed the bowl down these stairs many times! In this house you never know WHERE you will find that food bowl. We often have to go looking for it when it's time to feed the dogs. I have even found the bowl in the living room!

Yeah Spike, you won this time, but just wait until tomorrow

I put the bowl back once again and this time Spike decides he is going to eat once and for all! Allie is not happy about this.

 

Update: the next day

 

Allie decided today she would hide the food under the kitchen desk. Maybe Spike wont see them under there!?

Allie decided today she would hide the food under the kitchen desk. Maybe Spike won’t see them under there!?

Another Place Allie Hid her Food Another Place Allie Hid her Food

Another place Allie hid her food—remember, the dogs are not allowed on the carpeted area. Spike will not go in this room for the food; Allie on the other hand...

Now who's gona clean that up!

My family and I were about to sit down and watch a movie on a Saturday night when we hear "CRASH" and we knew Allie succeeded in getting "rid" of the food. To top it all off, this was right after she got herself sprayed by a skunk, and my daughter and I spent the last half hour with a dog, bathtub and a bottle of Skunk Off!

Spike will never go all the way back here to find the food! This is perfect, Spike's too much of a goodie-two-shoes to try and come in here

BTW, this is where I later found the second food bowl—in the far back corner of the dining room, a room neither dog is allowed to go into.

Friends have told me since Allie was sprayed by the skunk, maybe she will learn not to chase the skunk. Well, Allie has been sprayed twice by a skunk and this is her the very next day after getting sprayed for the second time. She wants to go outside. I opened up the door and what do you think I smelled? You guessed it, SKUNK! So I didn't let her out. Does it look like Allie has learned her lesson? Take a look at this video clip of her wanting to go out and chase the skunk. She is non-stop relentlessly asking! Video Clip

 

The following are pictures and stories of dogs caught in the act of doing deeds we fellow dog owners would have preferred them NOT to do. This section is sure to keep you laughing; after all, it was not YOUR dog! Or was it? Despite these deeds, most of us still love our dogs. For those of you who just had a dog commit a no-no, look at these picture pages and don't feel so bad, it could have been worse! Do you have a photo(s) of your pet caught in the act of a no-no? Send it in! along with your story!

Wondering why dogs do these bad deeds? Puppies need constant guidance and to be taught what is acceptable and what is not. A dog that goes on daily pack walks is less likely to engage in any destructive tendencies. Most dogs that are destructive are not happy dogs. When a dog is destructive it is usually a sign that there is something lacking in the dog’s life, something that the canine animal needs which the humans around them are not providing—perhaps boredom, a lack of communication, exercise, discipline or a general understanding between canine and human. A dog’s actions are a direct result of the humans around it. Learn more: Understanding Dog Behavior.
