    I can't trust Ziggy around ball games. Not other dogs' games, but sports. I often have to drag her past kids playing football in their gardens. The other day I had to get her between a basketball game and a bowls game! Had to grip her harness and half drag half carry!

    Kite doesn't have any annoying tendencies - she's perfect.:)

    Ferdie paws at me. I have been struggling for five years to try to teach him that I would rather he kept his paws to himself, but it still hasn't worked. He has big sharp claws and really heavy feet, and he sort of flops one on me when he sits next to me. And it hurts.

    No annoying habits yet from Diva.

    Bella would be her impatience! Shes a nightmare to take to any event as whenever you stop she gets fed up and will whinge or bark. Apart from husky racing she'll happily sit and watch that one :rolleyes:

    Barnie is probably, he'll stand at his toy box and huff if he don't think he can reach what he want, which is most likely to be right on the top of the box :skep:

    Whine. He talks so much. :rolleyes: He whines if you are ignoring him, if he wants something, if he hears something outside, for pretty much everything and anything.

    But then I wouldn't be without his talkative nature either. :D

    They all have their own little unique annoying quirks, but something they all do which drives me nuts is scrap at the back door to go out, then just stand then and refuse to go outside when I open the door - then do it again the second I sit back down - argh!!

    They also whine and pace around when it's getting near dinner time - I'm not likely to forget, I don't need five doggie reminders!!

    Indy paws at my face when he curls up in my lap. Also waking us up at night when after 4 seconds we haven't got up to let him out.

    Hugo, at the moment - bite my face. That's annoying.

    Oscar - run away when we go to put his harness or lead on. :( No idea where it came from but he hates it.

    When monte stretches he puts his paw and claws on your leg. I constantly have a scratch down one or both legs. :eek:
    He also thinks it is perfectly acceptable to accompany you to the loo and stare at you!

    Emma likes to nibble my ears.. no one elses, just mine and I'm not her favourite person, my wife is.

    Nelson is a complete noisy coward when it comes to strangers howling while running away.

    Daisy can and will open doors. Doesn't matter if they need pushing or pulling. Have to ensure certain doors are locked rather than simply closed. No idea where she picked this up from.

    Oscar does both of these - the stretch usually comes when he's realised I'm putting my jeans/socks on and we're going out (lovely dog claws down the top of my bare foot! >.<)

    But his most annoying habit is when we're heading out for a walk, he's all eager, but the moment I go towards him to put his harness on, he legs it away from me and we have a big game of cat and mouse to get it on him. SUCH a wind up after he's tap danced after me, whining, rushing me to get dressed already! ¬_¬

    The Rotties really don't do anyfink wrong, honestly, but the Terrier X, OMG, the list goes on and on and on....

    I don't like him yipping when he hears horses in the lane outside;
    I don't like him yipping when we're on the way to the fields to play;
    I don't like the way he fusses around his food;
    I don't like the way he has a jealous streak in him when I'm sitting with the biguns;

    Other than that, he's fine! I do love him, but he is hard work.:D

    Blue constantly steals the toilet brush and drags it to various spots around the house to chew. :shocked:

    Oh I love it! Monte doesnt take the brush but the toilet roll on the other hand Is like nirvana to him. Infact he can sniff out a tissue at 100 yards and can have it shredded in less than a second :eek:
