Before dinner habits.

How many of your dogs sit and stare at you when it is feeding time and you are a little late?

My dogs sit right in front of me and stare as soon at the clock hits 8:30 unless we are at dog club working.

Re: Before dinner habits.

Jerzey's feed schedule has always been all over the place so I've never really had that reaction... I try to feed her at around 7 but now, esp. with sun staying up longer, I've got kind of thrown off. Lol. Now the cat, well, he's another story completely!!

Re: Before dinner habits.

Mine don't stare at me but if I am a few minutes late, Shadow will pick up her stainless steel bowl and throw it on the kitchen floor. (Noisy!) If I do not move fast enough for her, Shadow will pick it up and carry it to where ever I am and put it in my lap.

Re: Before dinner habits.

Gracie will walk in and nose DH's hand off the computer if he is 5 minutes late. Me, she'll try to whine and moan but I tell her to wait and lay down and she does

Oh how funny Shadow!! Throwing your bowl across the floor, please don't teach Gracie that one

Re: Before dinner habits.

Ava doesn't stare at me either, she will just go and lay in front of her bowl in the kitchen and if I don't get the hint fast enough she will come and "get me"

Re: Before dinner habits.

Neke used to do the stare thing. She would sit right in front of you and stare. Not moving - just stare. Constant. Staring. Not blinking.

It was funny.

Now the gang just gets restless. They will jump on and off the couches, mill around and bolt for the kitchen at the slightest sign of movement from me.

And Dog forbid I say the word FOOD unless I am serious!!

Laurie Hella and Uly are like that also. Good I thought it was just mine.

Re: Before dinner habits.

Anna will stare...then mill around, walking by the foodbowls, nudging the door to the laundry room (where their food is kept) then comes back and stares...if still nothing, she comes and sits on us.

Now the cat, Simon, he just HOWLS like a bloody banschee/cat being drug by a car/demon of death until I've had enough and get up to feed him his wet food every morning. I really don't need an alarm clock!

Re: Before dinner habits.

She will go in the kitchen where her bowl is. If she isn't drinking I go to check her water bowl to see if its empty. If its full she will just stare at me and look up at the cupboard where the food is, as if to say come on, can't you see I'm a little hungry! If I ignore her she might let out a little whine.

At least the ferrets are quiet! But when they are hungry they get a little rude about trying to steal food from your plate, we have to have small piles of bits already cut up and on the side of the plate to hand to them quickly or else they will get pushy and have no trouble snatching a whole piece of something and running off with it. LITTLE ER'S
