How do you irritate your pup?
So I have a knack for irritating the heck out of my babies - doesn't matter how much I love them, I will still find some little thing to annoy them.
When Alex is just laying there, I like to slowly put my fingers in-between her paw pads, gently. She tolerates it for a few seconds before grunting and kicking out in frustration. This usually causes her to roll over so I can't reach her and those little golden eyes staring at me as if to say "really, mom?"
I also like to barely touch the tip of her tail fluff and make her tail twitch. I inevitably, again, get those eyes staring at me.
I also like to sit on her Lamb Chop stuffed animal (her FAVORITE) and 'hide' it from her. She gets so frustrated that she usually ends up grunting and 'talking' until I release it for her.
No worries, though. I never do anything that will hurt my babies or upset them. Just enough to pester them. It all usually ends up with me being pelted with lots of kisses to the cheek and tails wagging in a blur.
What kinds of things, if any, do you do to irritate your dog? Or am I the only crazy one that does this...
