My dogs are sulking.....

    Out of our three dogs, one is sick - on the mend - loves me because she's being fed chicken and rice at the moment, but hating me for having to give her medicine twice daily. So she is definitely sulking
    The other dogs are staring me out in that pathetic way dogs do when they are desperate for something - chicken and rice in this case - but not wanting to interact with me, even though I've taken the time to explain the situation to them - I'm sure I'm not the only one who does this!! A sure sign of sulking.
    I'm not sure what's worse, hubby in a sulk, children in a sulk or sulking dogs.

      The other dogs are just jealous.

        I took my little Schnauzer, Baby,  to be groomed today, and she has pouted ever since.  She hates a bath.  It's like she thinks I punished her for something. Won't play...just sits and glares at me.

          Dogs have feeling you know. I think we should learn dog talk so they can tell us exactly what they want.

            My Baby and I communicate very well.  I swear she can tell time. She knows when it's play time at 4PM, and again at 8PM.  She knows when it's walk time at 6 PM.   She lets me know when she is ready, too.  She makes a special little sound.  I even wrote a Hub about her:  she's the Queen of our house!

      It's not nice to play favorites!  Give them little chicken and rice too.  Just a little to show you luv them too.

        Everytime I open the fridge door there they are looking hopeful.You have to laugh. Maybe a little later...

          LOL, yes, EVERY time I open the fridge - or have a snack - I get that "me too" look from my dogs.

      Why do we treat our dogs like children?  I'm guilty too. Especially when they need meds. It's hard to be matter of fact and do the dreaded job of giving them meds.  Fortunately mine take pills in bread with peanut butter. Now the ears are a sensitive area...I'll wait when when  I'm watching TV and kind of sneak up on them when they are on my lap. 

      As far as all doggie's at the fridge, I agree,  why not give them all a little chicken and rice, or a biscuit for each of them.

    Dogs are your family. Family dynamics are always challenging. Keep up the doctoring and you will return to the stability you enjoyed once before.

    Sulking dogs for sure, there is something just pathetically discomforting about a sulking dog.
