    Dog lovers, is this how it works at your house, too?

    Leo seems to think "Mommy sitting at sewing machine equals me needing to go in & out & in & out..."... LOL! Anybody else have that "issue"?

    Fortunately we have a doggy door. We installed it last winter because our 2 year old dog was driving us crazy, going in/out every two minutes!

    yes, every time I sat at the machine that is what he would do. Could do anything else but on no, had to do this when sewing only.

    Not at my house. When I'm at the sewing machine Wolfie knows it will be a while before he goes out again. I usually start sewing after he has had his time out sniffing the yard and checking stuff out. He settles down for a nice nap while I sew and when I'm ready to take a break from sewing, he is ready to go out again.

    Mine knows that when I head for the studio she's in for a long nap. She has a bed under my desk. She lays down in her bed and as long as I'm in there she's napping! She's always been good that way.....

    LOL If mine needs to go out, when I'm busy, I take her out and give her about 2' of leash. "Potty right here or forget it!" If the need is legit, she'll tend to business. If she just stands there and stares at me, I bring her back inside and ignore her (she gets the message).

    I have four dogs and when I sit at my machine they want to do the in and out thing... so I made one of those vecro hanging fabric screen doors. Now they go in and out when they want and I can keep at my machine.

    My dog learned to open the sliding screen door when he was outside wanting in. Tried to teach him how to close it but guess he only cared about getting in. Didn't care as much about getting out. LOL Sure do miss that dog!!

    Momma, You are just sitting there and I want to go out. My Dixie thinks she has to go for a walk to potty. She makes my husband walk her for 1.5 mile if they go out. Me, the walks are just short and sweet.

    Who said anything about "potty"?!? LOL! Leo just wants to go out & look at the squirrels & birds or who knows what he wants to do. He just wants to do it RIGHT NOW when I have a pile of sewing on my lap... or I'm trying to hold something just so... LOL!

    I have 3 cats and a dog that can never co-ordinate their "ins and outs", so I just chalk it up to them helping me get my exercise.

    A-hem! No, it's not just a "golden thing"....it's a "poodle thing" as well! I think what it really amounts to is a "I'm mad 'cause you're playing with that noisy thing more than me...what am I, chopped liver? Or what???"...or at least, it seems like that at my house!
    If you feel like you're special...it's 'cause you are!

    Aren't Golden Retrievers just the best ??? Of course, any dog is a wonderful creature. Our pets become just like extensions of our family. We are on our 2nd Golden as we lost our 1st beloved one to cancer. They are the most loving, gorgeous creatures.

    Miss Daisy is a nag, she whines and paws at my leg if she is in the studio till I want to wring her neck. I put a baby gate up so she can't get downstairs with me. If she whines, I call my DH on the cell and ask him to deal with her. Eventually she gets the message and takes a nap somewhere. There are positive things from out of work spouses. He adores her and doesn't mind and she doesn't do that to him. I love your sign.
    We were working on refinishing living room floor - that blob is her bunny toy. It's hard to be mad at that face

    I think it is a lab thing!!!! Miss Bess is lab/German shorthair and it doesn't matter what I am doing, she whines to go out and then has a two-bark "let me in, NOW" thing and everything stops, I go out, bring her in, say "Good Dog, Bessie", start back to what I am doing and there goes the whine again! I don't recall our son even whining that much!!!!! But we love them, the dogs!!!!!

    When I sit at my sewing machine, the dogs think it's nap time. When I get up to get coffee or whatever I do when I walk away from the machine for a few minutes, they stay sleeping. If it's around noon, they go out and come right back inside, planting their selves at the door of my sewing room. When I sew, they sleep more.

    Brie (avatar) only thinks she rules our house ..well she does !LOL okay I admit it ..we have 2 doors in our sewing/misc room so they are open when we are out there, so she can come and go as she pleases.. She also has a rug to lay on, her own personal pillow with her own personal quilt !LOL Okay okay so she is spoiled ! LOL I blame DH for that one !LOL
    Plus the fact that she knows where we are so I think in her mind it calms her and then its NAPPY time .. LOL
