I have some stories to share about the dumb/funny stuff my dogs have done lately. I hope other people have some to share too because I love dog stories.
My pit, Little Man, does NOT like strangers. He usually hides and barks at them, or refuses to leave the shed while strangers are around. He usually doesn't let anyone play with him unless they come inside our house first and he knows they are friendly. My husband's friend Matt came over and he just started playing with him without freaking out. He grabbed a toy and ran over to Matt with it and I was sooo confused. After playing with Matt for about 10 minutes, he just stopped all of a sudden and stared at him. He dropped the toy and just stood there staring. Finally, he ran off and hid behind me and started barking at him. He finally realized he had NO clue who he was playing with! We all just stood there laughing until he finally got over it and went back to playing with Matt.
My new dog, Khanti, spends all day in my bedroom while I sleep. I have a ton of toys and chewies for him, and I take him out twice before I get up for the day. I've been teaching him how to play fetch and he has been catching on pretty fast, he just doesn't know the appropriate times to play fetch! I had been sleeping for about an hour, and all of a sudden Khanti head butted me. I woke up, and he had shoved all of his fetch toys up on the bed and was trying to climb up after them. He is too small to get up on the bed, so I tossed them all back on the floor and went to sleep. So guess what he did? Took every single toy to the OTHER side of the bed and covered my husband in dog toys. He did the same thing that I did, and finally Khanti just started doing it with one toy. He would shove the toy in our face and head butt us until we threw it. He did this from 8 AM til about 12 PM when my husband woke up.
Khanti is also a sock chewer. I have to put all the socks in a laundry basket and stick them on top of our dresser because he figured out how to knock the dresser drawers out. (I have NO idea how!) He will knock them out and chew up my thongs, my bras, and all of the socks. We have been training him to stop chewing, and it has been going a little better. The other day though, he picked up a sock, and picked up his toy at the same time. My husband told him to drop it, so he dropped the toy and kept the sock! He told him to drop it again, so he dropped the sock and picked the toy AND the sock back up again like he wouldn't notice! I told him to drop it, and he dropped both and started scooting around on his butt backwards away from the sock and toy. He then scooted back forward, picked the sock up, brought it to my husband, and started jumping around him....I don't know why...
