WTF is going on with my dog??!!
Ok, so today is birthday, and my girlfriend gave me a pretty nice watch. Every hour it beeps. Normally I wouldn't have even noticed this except that every time it beeps my lab jumps off the couch and just looks at me. Like, "Ok mom, lets go!" My gf said that the whole time it was sitting in a box wrapped up it was beeping and he was doing this all week!
We've never trained him to do anything at the sound of a beep, he doesn't even get off the bed when the alarm goes off.
WTF is wrong with him?? LOL!

2. Lol! Maybe.
I'll have to get a hold of my animal to human translation dictionary and figure out what he's saying!

3. My dog freaks out over the smoke alarm battery change reminder beep/chirp
Probably just the pitch of the beep upsets the dog :shrug:

4. Maybe
I don't know. I have three other dogs that don't even notice it.

5. Dogs are just brain damaged like that. Ask Bill Cosby.

7. He'd just say all children are brain damaged. And animals too.
My dog keeps digging up the bodies I've buried in the yard. I just can't train him.

It's getting annoying. :eyes:

8. I hate it when that happens.
You go through all that trouble and the damn dog just messes it up. What I really hate is when mine decide to take the car without permission. You would think they would at least put gas in it. But no they always bring it back on empty.

10. Come to think of it, my gas tank is half down, and I just filled it! That must be the dog too!
Shit! I'll have to start hiding the car keys now too! That little bastid!

But man, do I ever have a mess to clean up in the yard. He found half the graves. I should probably do this at night. Fewer witnesses. *sigh*

11. I would do the cleaning at night.
I know it sucks but you really don't want the neighbors noticing. That would just create a whole new set of problems.

16. Whew! I just got finished re-digging the graves. I hate working up a sweat.
The dog is still chewing on a bone. Shoud I be worried about the DNA evidence?

I'd hate to take a chew bone away from the dog. He get's cranky about shit like that.

9. I train labs
And he probably thinks it's a doorbell, the sound of which indicates a new visitor, which, I'm sure you know, labs love. Either that, or your dog is fucking crazy.

12. I'm leaning toward fucking crazy.
That would make a better story. But the doorbell thing makes a lot of sense. Thanks.

13. I'd go for the doorbell/visitor thing. My dog thinks anyone that knocks at the door comes to see him
Dogs are brain damaged like that.

I can be gone for 5 minutes to the Qwik Shop, and he greets me like I've been gone all day. :eyes:
