    What are the little things your dogs always seem to do at the worst times?
    Here are a few of mine, I'm sure there'll be more later!

    My dogs ALWAYS.......
    1. Feel the need to poop on the lawn 60 seconds after I've cleared it.
    2. Burp in my face right after eating sardines (that's just Otto!)
    3. Find the one muddy/swampy puddle in the field.
    4. Roll in fox/badger muck on their first walk after having a bath.

    Domino - always poos after I have cleared up the garden.
    gets filthy just before we are due to go out and needs a bath.
    always has to get into puddles

    Buzz always has to roll over even if it is raining (not a good look for a Westie)

    Archie always hides your shoes just when you are going out

    Both of ours wait til I've cleaned the lawn before having a really good poop. I think it's a dog thing, as in 'there daddy, have another little job to do':D:D

    Lincoln can never keep water in his mouth when he laps it up from his water bowl and ALWAYS without fail leaves a lake of water when he walks away that goes from his bowl to wherever it stops dribbling out of his mouth which we will ALWAYS without fail step in and get wet feet!!!!

    My labrador used to dribble at the slightest suggestion of food in the kitchen. Pools of dribble would be an understatement. Husband (slightly less doggy than me) then slipped over on it! Quite often......

    Oh I forgot. Dropping a huge poo in front of people (preferably not dog lovers). Yes, I always cleared it up but in front of a disapproving audience it is surprising how hot and bothered you can get.

    Yes, I well remember the time at Chatsworth when Pippa surpassed herself. Lovely sunny day, loads of people having cream teas, ice creams etc outside the tea room on the lawn. Then the Smith's arrive with Pippa and lo and behold a huge poo emerges. Trouble is the grass was so short and dry and the poo kept rolling off my little scoop like a sausage that did not want to be barbecued! Well I got it in the end but talk about feel a fool! The staff found it quite amusing though. :eek:

    1. Whilst munching pushes the bowl into the middle of the kitchen where i inevitably trip over it/ stand in it/ kick my toe.
    2. Follow me like a shadow then when i turn around I walk into her.
    3. Eat my favourite pair of shoes but never my OH's.
    4. Always do something naughty just when I am telling people how good she is and how well she has come on!
    5. The poo thing :p
    :rolleyes:

    Lilly wipes her mouth on the carpet after she has had a drink :D
    Zipper licks the sofa so it's all soggy when you want to sit down :rolleyes:
    Lilly always seems to walk just behind me in the park so I'm turning around looking for her and she's following me, so I'm calling her and she's right there :eek:
    Zipper rolls in, eats and rolls some more in poo at every opportunity :p

    1) Ask to go outside and then want to come back in the second I sit back down again

    2) Have a mad five minutes at the most unsocialable of hours - it was 3.45am this morning when I heard the unmistakable clattering of claws on the wooden flooring as 100mph zoomies around the coffee table took place

    3) Decide to play with their loudest squeaky toys whilst I'm on the phone

    4) Eat something like it's his favourite thing in the entire world and then go off of it the day I buy a load in bulk - yes, you Harvey

    5) Lay on their backs when their bits in the air when we have company :rolleyes:

    What about treading on your feet and then seeing something they want to chase. Springing forward while using your feet as a launch pad. Ouch!
