    That's so true!!!My thing is in the morning though. One walks in to get the daily petting, one needs to hear how much I love him, one needs a drink, etc etc etc
    LOL :D

    I have one cat that will go into his litterbox and pee when I do! The other 20 pounder likes to bash my shins with his head while I'm enthroned! :mrgreen:

    my rotty,Babe, big as she was, was so quiet..i would turn around from cooking or doing the dishes and almost step on her.
    we had to get a glow in the dark collar for her, because i would step on her in the middle of the night,no telling where she was laying around the bed.
    she also followed me to the bathroom, and layed between my feet and the wall,no room for even a piece of paper between us!

    ..she would rest her head on the tub while i was bathing. and watch me with these pitiful looking eyes. i miss her so much
    the JRT curls up in my dirty clothes and waits for me to finish bathing. they only follow me to the bathroom..but they watch my every move..look out if i put shoes on or grab my purse!

    Imagine having this problem with a great dane that is currently at 150 lbs. He barely fits in the bathroom and has to back out. We have a new puppy and he has already learned the bathroom trick.

    The funniest part is I have to look up to be eye to eye or he will bend over to be eye to eye and will just sit there and wait until the flush sound and then he runs out scared for his life!

    Before our golden Ruby passed this April she always had to follow me into the bathroom. I sure do miss her, it is so lonely in there. She always followed me and then scooted up to me so I could pet her and tell her how wonderful she was. I think she thought the bathroom was just our special time room!

    tee hee. Bet you blamed a ghost first.

    I don't have to worry about that. Things that run and make noise are enemies. They stay as far on the edge of the room as they can.

    I have seen these dogs at the seashore trying to herd waves.
    Boots and Fiona would try that!

    same here,2 dogs follow me..and when the grandsons are here, they join the parade too..i would not know what it is like to close the bathroom door!
    I designed my bathroom so I don't have to close the door to have privacy-----------well, there are the dogs who really don't much care for rules to begin with.

    Shrekie, my DD's dog, didn't care about the parade much, she just wanted to look out the door is see if her mommy was home yet--just across the field. DD and SIL went camping and Shrek thinks she should be in on all her family activities. @@

    After 5 years, Henry still hasn't learned that if I go in that door, I'm coming out that door. If the door isn't shut completely, I have one eye looking around the door at me while I am "seated". If the door is shut, there is at least one paw trying to get me from under the door. :-)
    I need to see if I can find my dog rules in my file.

    this was copied from email, have no idea where it came from to start with

    Dear Dogs and Cats:

    The dishes with the paw prints are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

    The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Beating me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help because I fall faster than you can run.

    I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to maximize space is nothing but sarcasm.

    For the last time, there is no secret exit from the bathroom. If by some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the knob or get your paw under the edge and try to pull the door open. I must exit through the same door I entered. Also, I have been using the bathroom for years --canine or feline attendance is not required.

    The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt. I cannot stress this enough!

    To pacify you, my dear pets, I have posted the following message on our front door:

    To All Non-Pet Owners Who Visit & Like to Complain About Our Pets:
    1. They live here. You don't.
    2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. That's why they call it " fur"niture.
    3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.
    4. To you, they are an animal. To me, he/she is an adopted son/daughter who is short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly.

    Remember: Dogs and cats are better than kids because they:
    1. Eat less
    2. Don't ask for money all the time
    3 Are easier to train
    4. Normally come when called
    5. Never ask to drive the car
    6. Don't hang out with drug-using friends
    7. Don't smoke or drink
    8. Don't have to buy the latest fashions
    9. Don't want to wear your clothes
    10. Don't need a gazillion dollars for college, and...
    11. If they get pregnant, you can sell their children

    On second thought, I've got it easy!

    Obviously, humans need help and our cats & dogs have volunteered to help us.
    We only have one pet now and he is besides himself trying to help both of us.
    There are two bathrooms. What to do?

    Poor doggie. (kitty?). Guess going with the one of you who moves the slowest would be the wise move.

    My dog has to be directly behind my chair when I am either on the computer or sewing, the cat comes and goes except when I have to go to the bathroom! If I close the door, he sits outside and meows and then starts trying to get his paw under the door...he has learned to open bifold doors this way to get into the closets! First it was the kids....now it's the fur babies!

    I grew up in a one bathroom, four children farm house. Traffic in there was a given especially since this was when teasing hair was in vogue. So my little doggie in the bathroom "checking" on where I am is a warm reminder of the good ole days and brings a fresh appreciation of having more than "we" need especially in bathROOMs.

    LOL..so funny...we used to have a 150 ob choco lab and a 90 lb lab-shephern mix. They followed me around everywhere. Everytime I went to the bathroom, 4 eyes were staring at me. I take a shower and my husband sits on the toilet, lid down, and we have conversations through the shower curtain...Is nothing sacred anymore??? I thought about putting a lock on the door but they'd only yell through the door...lol.. Our previous house had a claw foot and when my son was very young he's come into the bathroom when I was taking a bubble bath and sit on the toilet seat, lid down, and want to talk. Like father....like son.......lol My son is grown, thank God, and no longer comes in the bathroom. Now, if I could only train my husband better, lololol.....

    So, I have to scoot Fiona (80#) out of the computer room doorway.
    Boots (90#) is laying in the bathroom door because it's as close to the computer room as he can get since his sissy claimed the computer room door.
    Well, I wanted a drink first, so I went to the kitchen first. Here come my DD's two dogs from the bedroom (we're doggysitting).

    Alllllllllll the way to the kitchen. Make a U turn and all the way back to the bathroom.

    Boots is happy, since Fiona got up and he rushed back and claimed her spot while I was still in the bathroom.

    The only one who missed the parade was my hubby who sleeps thru these nightly parades. Well, they happen during the day, too.
    3AM.........on the computer???????

    and my family think I am on this machine a lot !!!!!!!!!!!
