Default 'Non-dog' stuff that make your dog happy....

I'm not talking about when you get the leash out, or when your dog sees you put something in their bowl, or when they see you grab the tennis ball. I think the majority of dogs get a happy for those things.

I'm talking about last night when Orson saw Kevin building a fire in the backyard, his nubby started to wiggle pretty fast. He saw me getting the weenie sticks out of the shed he got prancie-dancie.


He saw me get not one, but TWO bags of big fluffy marshmallows out of the cupboard and he couldn't contain himself any longer! He followed me all the way down the hall, out the back door, and through the yard dancing and LITERALLY spinning circles! Yes, a big 75lb dog spinning happy circles is HAZARDOUS! hahahaha

That boy LOVES roasted marshmallows! He acquired a taste for the black ones 'cause when the kids over cooked theirs, they'd slip it to him

So? What 'non dog' stuff does your dog get excited over?

That's adorable!

Rylie gets excited over alcohol- it's terrible. If I pour beer into a pint glass, she's right in my lap trying to shove her head into it. Last night I had a small glass of rum while I was sitting on the couch, and Rylie managed to steal a sip. Thankfully she's a 4lb dog and can't get onto the coffee table or I'd be in major trouble!

Do collars count? Chloe dances in circles for hers- I don't walk my chis on collars, so there aren't any "rewards" for wearing them.

Lettuce! All of them go nuts for lettuce.

I'm struggling to think of something that doesn't make Squash happy.

Alcohol? That's very different. Most dogs I know do not like the the glass or on anyone either. And Chloe is a fashionista! LOL

And Sass, I LOVE perpetually happy dogs........I bet I'd love being around Squash

LMAO Adrianne!

Mike's hard lemonade. Elsie's life-goal is to steal one. She turns into this half-cat ninja when I have one open, and tries all possible angles of attack.

She also loves Dwight Yoakam's voice.

When I talk on the phone with my dad she follows me with more intensity than usual, but that's because it often means he's coming over.

Children's movies. She'll sit on the sofa with you wand watch an entire animated movie.

blankets. Belle LOVES blankets. Anytime she can steal one she will lol. She can sleep on the bed or the couch or her chair anytime she wants but if there is even a tiny blanket on the floor... she's on it even though I can't imagine it's more comfortable than her big comfy arm chair.

Victor....blankets..specially the grey soft one Bp sent. It is his prime goal in life to be covered as much as possible by it.

Neccy Becky, rocking chairs and apparently the piano.

Pepper is a harder one,she more dog acting than any dog I have ever owned soI guess I would have to say the bird feeder, even tho it eventually leads to what she wants in the first place which anything non bird that comes to see it. She watches it half her day.

Go Petie Go Go Who Go!

love comes in many directions with mary

Side by side on the sofa sat three annoyed dogs and one smug cat
and then in came a little white kitten,

Most of the stuff I can think of relates to food, LOL. Like getting out the cutting board. My mom would get the cutting board out and chop the tops off strawberries, then give Auggie the strawberry tops... so now he is OBSESSED whenever you get out the cutting board. Payton also thinks when you get the kitchen shears out it means he is about to get some chicken. So even though it's not the sort of thing that just any dog would react to, it's totally normal for them to have those associations LOL.

Most of our computers in the house are laptops, but we do have one desktop computer. Baxter gets super excited when someone goes to use the desktop computer. His favorite thing to do is to lay behind you when you're sitting on the computer chair.

Baxter also loves really sappy movies. He'll sit with you and whimper and try to cuddle during the sad parts.

Rocky goes crazy for an type of plastic bottle. He loves to play with plastic water bottles, but any plastic bottle will do. If you're drinking out of a plastic bottle he'll follow you around until you either give it to him or throw it out. We've stopped buying bottled soda when we have barbecues because Rocky will hover around the table where the food and drinks are and stare at people that are going up to the table. He doesn't want the food, just the soda bottle.
