Default Things you dislike about owning dogs

I hate dog food. I really do. I dread any time we have to do a food switch. I sometimes want to just feed Purina and be done with it.

Also agility politics. I now get somewhat of what people that show their dogs have to deal with.

Moving/finding dog friendly rentals is the biggest one.

Dog hair on all of my black work clothes. I guess that's partially my fault for having white dogs...

My least favorite thing is probably the stress caused by other people interacting with/taking care of my dog, I'm always afraid something will go wrong or that they'll do something wrong and cause a problem. It's especially difficult when I don't even live with him, I'm always wondering if my parents have done something to make his behavior worse.

Thank you ~Dixie's Mom~ for my awesome siggy!

Picking up the yard? I guess?

I don't know, my guys are pretty much just fun for me. I have it easy I suppose!

What sort of political issues are you seeing in agility? I've been pretty impressed by the lack of it myself, but I also pretty much trial with the same group of people all the time.

I hate trying to get my dogs to eat. They are so **** fussy, but Lucy is the worst. She gives me the 'I'm starving' look, then takes one sniff of her dinner and goes back to bed, to look sad some more. I really hate that.

I also hate walking them in the hurricane strength wind and rain! And picking up turds, that is also super nasty.

It's going to cost me almost $1000 to board my three while we're on vacation in April, which doesn't really thrill me. Plus the huge amount of anxiety I'm going to have about them the whole time we're gone.

Barking. Not a fan of barking. This means you, Steven.

And when Harv used to follow Luce around the backyard with his mouth open, waiting for her to poop, and then would come in the house and vomit it back up on the carpet? I didn't enjoy that, either.

I think the having to leave him part. LOL. I don't really like to leave him, and would love if he could always just be with me but, well, life happens and he can't be with me 24/7. But even when I really want to go somewhere and go away and have fun, I always have him in the back of my mind, and it makes me want to get him sooner than I would if I didn't have a dog to get home to, ya know?
