Amazingly similar to cats, but not house-trained instinctively...

But dogs worship you, do they not?

Lol

I've surrendered everything but my bed to my dog. He used to not wake me to be let outside until I took off from work for a few weeks and started getting up an hour later than my usual 11:30 A.M. (2nd shifter) So now gets me up at just after 6:00 A.M. and just after 10:00 A.M. like clockwork and I'm wondering how I'll be putting up with that when I return to work next month.

My last dog when in my 20s (A Pit Bulldog and Bulldog mix) didn't bark at my neighbors and this one (Olde English Bulldog) does. I've tried to pour water on him to make him stop but he was hep to that and I can't catch up to him with any splashing water pan in my hands. He was 3 years old when I inherited him from my terminal cancer friend. He's really a cool mellow mannered dog and has been introduced to and petted by them but I wish he didn't bark at my neighbors every time he sees them anyway.

A spray bottle with a directed stream might work better than a pan. Or not. Some dogs just have to bark, it's in their DNA. When confronted by strangers, OUR dogs won't bark. No, they'll just wag their tails and try to coax those strangers over to the refrigerator . . . where it's ALL goin' on.

Mabel the pit bull stays in her cage at night. When we moved to our new house she took to barking at noises at all hours of the night. I got up and doused her in the face with a glass of water. She don't bark at night no more.

I have a huge back yard and that's the only time he barks.

When I was in my teens I had a pit that would only bark once at strangers who approached the house just to let you know but she wouldn't bother them or keep barking while they knocked at the door......Animals were another story with that one. When I moved to Dallas I gave her to a friend who lived way out in the country w/o livestock nearby. She was the only dog I ever saw that could blind-side and kill skunks repeatedly. She didn't trot back to the house with their carcass in her mouth though.....She spit them out immediately, lol.

Right with you until the last 3 rules. Our current pup is comfortable lounging in a snowbank when it is -20 F out. He starts panting when the temp in the house gets above 60F.

Had a husky who obviously loved it outside in the cold and snow. Inside, as soon as the furnace would kick on, the stupid thing plopped down on the kitchen floor register and would lay there and pant.

Especially some herding types. We had a sheltie growing up and it's just what they do.

Dogs are our friends, and when necessary, our helpers. I say, let them sleep on the sofa, bed, nice chair, u-name-it.
When you choose to live with a dog, or cat, there are some things you must simply accept. An early morning
"slurpy in the face" is one of those things, as is the occasional chewed-up-beyond-all-hope-shoe.

My cat (18 pounds,in his prime, and quite good sized) had a thing for my toothbrush. No idea what the deal was,
but I would come home and frequently find my tooth brush on the floor, look as though I had cleaned rocks with it.
This was pretty much his only weird thing. That, and sometimes, rarely, killing some poor backyard creature, apparently
on my behalf. Mice chipmunks were frequent victims.

He obviously felt his litter box needed sprucing up

We've got a West Highland White Terrier who figures if the cat can perch on the back of couches, so can he.
