Dog keeps following me!

Okay, it's my own dog, but even so...

I could currently do with a cup of tea, but the dog has only just stopped trying to press herself into my body and started on her chew. If I get up and go to the kitchen, she will follow me and then I will be back to square one....but at least I will have a cup of tea in my hand.

Can anyone sympathise?

I've been followed about all day. To the point he accidentally nearly broke my nose by accident.

Waits outside the toilet for me. Sits at my feet while I'm working.

Bloody love that dog 😍😍😍

That sounds like bliss. I don't know what your problem is grin

If it was my dog I'd only have to say the words "bath" or "vet" and he'd disappear like a shot.

Same boat here. I can't get a piss in peace let alone a shower without these crazy little eyes staring at me or the wee claws chit chitting around on the floors behind me. angry<not really.
He's so happy though trotting about thinking he's helping me. I can almost hear him smiling. grin
This pup is solar powered and will not sleep unless he's touching me somehow. Seems to just drop off when I need to put the kettle on. Might to have to take a flask to the sitting room to save waking him.

My dog is like velcro. He has forced me to sit in a frog position and is currently curled up sleeping between my legs.

Even when I go to the toilet he sits between my feet! I can’t count the number of times I’ve nearly broken my neck because he has appeared under my feet.

Zaphodsotherhead Mon 29-Jun-20 19:38:24

Oh, you are truly my people! Or, rather, my dog's people. Or your own dog's of those things.

She's currently made me move to an uncomfortable sideways-on position on the sofa, so she can slide herself in beside me and the sofa arm and lie touching me.

She always seems to have just left me alone for a second when I need the loo/a cup of tea/ a biscuit/to answer the phone. I stand up, she gets up from whatever she was distracted enought to do, follows me, and then we repeat the whole scenario.

I adore her, thankfully.

I sat with my legs crossed for the best part of an hour earlier, desperate for a wee but knowing that the dog would get up if I did and stand mournfully at the bottom of the stairs until I came back (he's allowed upstairs but he generally cba unless there's food involved). He's not been well and I didn't want to disturb him. He thanked me by rolling in a dead hedgehog on our evening walk.

I HAD to go for a wee - and now, apparently, I am not to be trusted.

Our dog is an equal opportunities lover. My Daughter is v clearly " her person", but if DD is working and her partner isn't around, well, the bathroom is fair play. whatever I'm doing there. So whatever I'm doing there,dog needs to supervise.

It's a good job we all love her, cardiomyopathy and all. You would not believe the lengths we've gone to during the recent hot weather. Ceiling fan? Check. Any other fan is too loud for her ears. Cooling towels? Yep. I'm and on it

But she's our little love

God yes. I'm currently in the toilet with a very sore stomach, and mine is lying on top of my bloody feet. He always comes to the toilet with me, weirdo!

It's not just dogs this is my cat after I went for a quick walk he follows me to the kitchen and rolls all over my feet so I cannot move my son asked if I was going to sit down to eat I pointed out I couldn't actually move because CAT! he laughed 😑

Chesneyhawkes1 Mon 29-Jun-20 21:15:47

My dogs follow me everywhere. Sometimes all 3, usually 2 and 1 is my Velcro dog.

Mostly all 3 come to the loo with me. If I'm in the bath the older one will get bored and wander off and the other 2 will sit on the bath mat waiting for me.

I love it and them 🥰

He thanked me by rolling in a dead hedgehog on our evening walk

A few weeks ago mine rolled in fox shit on a walk in the park. It was roasting hot and I had to chivvy him home caked in poo and stinking to high heavens.

It encrusted his harness and even managed to get right into the clip at the end of the lead. He looked thrilled while I washed it, retching angry

It's a good job we love them, isn't it?

I'm currently working on my laptop. I can only work in bed. She lies under the cover at the bottom of the bed. If I try to work anywhere else, it's all sighs and head on my chest or mouse-hand or keyboard or trying to sit on my lap.

So I work in bed and the world thinks I don't get up until lunchtime...

Oh I wish I could work in bed but the wee man would have my filing system inside out or outside into the garden if I took my eye off him.
Will give him his due today though, he's been a very good boy. Came back in from our walk about 8.30 and he went straight under the stairs to his crate to wait for a biscuit and fell asleep half in half out the door.
I've hoovered, dusted, washed the laminate and manged a couple of coffees while working at the dining table and he's only just came through looking for me all bleary eyed and surprised to see me.
Love him to bits, best lockdown buddy ever.

My dog follows me everywhere

All cute and adorable but so bloody annoying! When .I am wondering about the kitchen tidying he still follows me. He could sit and watch me from his bed but noooo, he has to be underfoot. Sometimes he does that annoying "follow from in front" thing where he walks really slowly and keeps turning round to check he's going the same way as me.

SurreyHillsGirl Tue 30-Jun-20 12:22:29

I feel you, OP. My dogs follow me everywhere, they sometimes follow DH but they have decided I am their person. Last night I took myself off to the spare room as I couldn't sleep as said dogs were hogging the bed. They followed me hmm

JesusInTheCabbageVan Tue 30-Jun-20 12:46:14

Same! I've told DH I'm going to buy myself a Darth Vader costume and dress her up as a Stormtrooper to make it a bit more entertaining.

Spidey66 Tue 30-Jun-20 13:14:01

My dog does that. Even if she's having a nap, she'll wake up the second I stand up and follow me. I think it's quite cute, her total and utter devotion to us.

Brigante9 Tue 30-Jun-20 13:30:06

I am unable to have a bath without both dogs ‘guarding ‘ me from next to the bath, nor can I go to the loo without at least one if not both trying to sit on my feet.

AlphaDalpha Tue 30-Jun-20 13:34:37

The dogs following me I LOVE. The two children, not so much so 😂

Zaphodsotherhead Tue 30-Jun-20 14:20:18

It's like having a tiny black and white toddler, who's completely silent. I turn round - and there she is, right where my feet go. I've trodden on her twice today already, whereupon she went and lay under the table, looking all forlorn and sad. Until I went into the living room, when she had to run ahead of me to lie on the sofa and look sad instead.

I am now typing with my elbows.

Dead legs, full bladder, work mounting up, and overdue a cuppa here. Oh, I understand.
