Swap you for a bed hopping, night time toy stealing 11 mo old lucher pup who will deposit his chain link lead on your head at 3am if he decides he has had not had sufficient exercise that day (insufficient exercise is anything that lasts less than 2 hours and is away from large bodies of water)

Swap for one cat. To goes out at least three times a night and then comes in so pleased at 1am, 3:30am and 5am to tell you all about it, very loudly. She also likes to remind you if six am in the week is breakfast then Saturday nd Sundays are no exception smile

Ii'm sure this Yorkie could do far worse things than that when she was that age... There is hope woman, keep the pup.

Athendof Sat 20-Oct-12 11:33:55

Is thd cat going to talk to the neighbours too?

Swap for a bed eating JRT

D0oinMeCleanin Sat 20-Oct-12 11:36:29

It's my own fault. I knew he had not been walked long enough yesterday. I should have arranged for him to be picked up to go with my Dad's dogs. I was waiting for roofing people to come at his usual am walk time, so he only got his short pm walk.

He is currently bouncing around the house like a kangaroo on acid and has brought me my walking boots since bringing me his lead last night did not work <sigh>

Oh yes, we cracked the bed eating problem many years ago, she now has a metal crate. But I understand your problem, she munches on anything she can get to when unsupervised, you can't imagine what the vet has removed from her tummy... And the cost!

ratbagcatbag my cat does this too, combined with the attacking feet under the duvet.

At weekends, if you are not up (remember said cat has been fed at 6.30) by 7.30 he'll leap on the bed and start a full frontal attack.

Also embarrasses us by leaping onto visitors laps and settling down to loudly suck his nipple.

Athendof Sat 20-Oct-12 11:43:29

That's the paradox of the problem, this yorkie hates walks. She normally refuses to move with the determination of a stubborn camel just after two blocks, fortunately, unlike a camel, i can carry ger back home

I like my cat, he only bothers the neighbour at daft o clock because he knows only the neighbour is stoopid enough to keep getting up to let him in and out and to feed him at that time too.

Neighbour can't understand why my cat keeps coming to his house, he never has proper cat food because he doesn't have a cat, he has to feed him cooked ham or chicken or tinned fish instead hmm

Athendof Sat 20-Oct-12 11:45:34

Oh god, the nipple sucking is something she has't done yet, thankfully.

(she will start doing it tomorrow, never fails)

Athendof Sat 20-Oct-12 11:49:33

Yes, but is easy to lock a cat out and the cat will find something nice to do or another open cat flap to keep him busy until the morning. I left this one out, and the whole neighbourhood is awake within 10 minutes.

Please some one take her off my hands, i give up!

Athendof Sat 20-Oct-12 11:51:14

If I were a cat I would be going to your neighbour house too! Nice food!

D0oinMeCleanin Sat 20-Oct-12 11:57:31

In my neighbour's mind cats like cat food, cooked chicken bits are a second rate substitution. I have explained that if he stops feeding him, the cat will stop visiting him at stupid o clock, but apparently he always "looks hungry" this is the same cat who is on a prescription diet for portly cats confused

Athendof Sat 20-Oct-12 12:03:32

I am totally convinced that most of my neighbours would be more inclined to poison the little barker than save her from starvation...

Mrsjay Sat 20-Oct-12 22:20:00

swap you for a xcollie who hates the dark and takes about 4 hours to calm down after and he thinks he can just eat and bite whatever I HAVE HAD A STRESSFUL night

Athendof Sat 20-Oct-12 22:36:02

I am at the end of my tether... it has been going on for almost a year now.

... and is getting worse. Last night she was barking for 5 hrs. I am so worried about the neighbours. I have been going down to shut her up, but as soon as I get in bed she starts again..

What is it that your dog hates about the dark? mine used to get into barking mode with the lights of cars outside or the neighbour cat teasing them from the window. It was sorted by covering the crate with a blanket... just like a bird cage.

Now, after several years, she is barking at things in her imagination...

Let her sleep upstairs?

Athendof Sat 20-Oct-12 22:51:57

You know that movie The Gremlins? and what happened with the lovely things if you feed them after midnight? well... if my dog sleep supstairs or even worse in my bed, it turns into a very very very nasty little dog.

We worked out this years ago. With the help of her third trainer. You let her sleep upstairs a night and hell turn loose for weeks afterwards.

Mrsjay Sat 20-Oct-12 22:54:59

Take the crate upstairs with you see if it settles her downa bit, for all this little shits dogs quirks he is really good at sleeping in his crate don't let her out though,

Irishmammybread Sat 20-Oct-12 23:02:37

There's a product called Adaptil you could try, it comes as a plug in diffuser which emits a synthetic canine pheromone and can have a soothing/calming effect in a variety of behavioural problems. You can buy it online or probably from your vet.

Athendof Sat 20-Oct-12 23:02:53

She loves her crate, she will bark her head off if she didn't have it around her. I need a man to bring the crate upstairs, it's as heavy as a supermarket trolley. No man around though. :-(

We rehome her when she was 6 months old and immediately noticed why the previous owner couldn't deal with her. It has been a constant battle for almost 13 years now, as soon as you sort something out, a new quirk appears.

Unfortunately, my circumstances have changed and I cannot giver her as much attention as she needs, I have been thinking of rehoming her for 3 years now, I really feel awful as I really think a dog is for life, but it is coming to a point that is even more cruel to keep her.

Athendof Sat 20-Oct-12 23:03:44

oh, and I know she is too old for rehoming but I think she still has another 3-5 years on her, she is as bouncy as a puppy (but hates walks)
