    Does every living creature in your house follow you to the bathroom?

    It's a bit before 3 AM. I'm in here on the computer. I needed a potty break..........

    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.

    If I turn around too quickly I run into my little poodle (15#) since she is ALWAYS located about 1/4" from my ankle. So - yep - nightly/daily parade around here, too.

    If I ever get the computer/stash room cleaned up and let some floor breathe, I'll have 3 out of 4 of them in HERE! We have some territorial issues, so there's no way all 4 will stay in one small space.

    Yep, most of the time my lab is right where I am. The maltipoo not so much. She's more independant! lol. Once my lab was at my feet while I was sewing. I moved to trim a fabric or something and I heard the sewing machine running. I jumped out of my skin! The lab had rolled onto the foot pedal! lol.

    He is herding you.

    I have seen these dogs at the seashore trying to herd waves.

    My cats tend to follow me too. I'll be in a room & look up & 2, 3 or more are somewhere in the room too. Love it!! They love U unconditionally, looks, flaws, their good listeners, let U know when their out of food or water, etc...

    They (and we) are herd animals and the herd must stick together (smile). Yes, my cat does this as well.

    Apparently I am not able to "make potty" by myself without cat supervision. It's funny when I offer to supervise them when they are in the litterbox - they are oddly offended...

    I have a small american eskimo that is 1 1/2 yrs old and follows me anywhere. At night she's always sleeping in my room; somewhere. Normally it's under the edge of my bed. I get up alot of times during the night and she's right behind me; all of the time. I go back to bed and she does so. I went to the doctor about getting up to go thru out the night so much; I told him that my dog and I are exhausted from not getting very much sleep because of going all night; he laughed.

    I have noticed that my son always wants to converse with me when I am in the bathroom. He is 14 and been doing it since he could walk.

    I used to look forward to the time when the children were old enough that I could close the bathroom door but no sooner did that happen than I acquired a lab puppy who cried and scratched the door if I closed it. I had to be careful getting out of the shower because she laid down in front of it. The next dog learned the same habits from her and the present on does the same. If I wanted privacy I would have to leave home. :lol:

    I have 3 french bulldogs - I wonder if they think I am going to jump out the bathroom window - because if I close the door - one by one they push it open and watch - I just hope they aren't making nasty comments to each other. When Iam sewing -usually they are in the background close - sometimes when they really want attention - one of them will sit on my foot pedal and my machine goes crazy.

    Funny! Usually it's a kid here that needs to go or is outside the door just waiting! LOL (5 kids here so there's always someone in the potty!)

    We have two dogs -one follows me into the bathroom each time. I always tell him "That's ok, I don't need your help. My mother taught me how to wipe myself a long time ago." And each time, he looks at me a minute and then backs out the door. I think he does it because he knows I'd have to pet him -I can't get away!

    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. :-)
