Fell asleep Mumsnetting and dog has finished off the pizza! What naughty things has your dog done?(29 Posts)
Long, long parents' evening, so pizza for supper. Thought I'dd have a bit of a Mumsnet while everyone was asleep but greedy dog has guzzled the pizza remains!
My dog will drink your cup of tea if left in reach unatended for even a nano second.
He's drank mine more than once when I've nodded off with the cup in my hand.
We left our Ddog (who was a puppy at the time) alone in the living room whilst we were doing the deed in the bedroom. When we returned, he had eaten all the letter keys off my laptop!
When we first left our puppy alone for an hour uncrated, she managed to get a Warburton's toastie loaf off the worktop, God knows how. She'd polished off most of it by the time we got home
Our then 4 month old pup ate a full Thorntons White Chocolate Easter Egg. Could have had an awful outcome but luckily he lived to tell the tale!! My 11 yr DD says she still thinks about the easter egg!!! I think this year she will keep them all stored high up out of his way.....
Eggs, we cant even dtd without a fully prepared distraction strategy in place. She tried to help once. It was horrifying. We lock the door now..
Oh dear Arty, haha!
My dogs are incredibly well behaved (result of previous owner). So you can put plates on the floor etc., and they only give a curious glance. But, once I made some banana bread and it turns out that is the thing that is too tempting for them. I put a huge chunk on the plate on the coffee table and turned my back and two seconds later when I turned around it was gone. No sound was made, it must have been inhaled and kind of choked down the way seagulls eat.
This isn't naughty but it made me laugh - I have a stuffed robin thing left out from christmas and today my other dog discovered it. Stared at it for ages and then tried to sneak up on it. This thing in no way at all resembles a real bird. It was funny as hell.
Pizza is the only thing our eldest dog will actually steal off a worktop (you could leave a joint of meat out overnight and she wouldn't touch it, although the cats would!). She has also done the Easter egg one too, breaking into my DSS's room and eating four in one go. Thankfully she was fine. Her worst one was when we first got hens. She got into their feed in and ate a load of whole corn. The corn reacted with her warm, damp stomach and behaved like popcorn. She did expanding poops every ten minutes for the next 24hrs. It was gross! And yes, she is, of course, a Labrador!
An extra pet as they knew we had them as pets not just working dogs. Usually the trained one seemed to 'tell on his brother? if he was naughty and chewed my toys or knocked me over to pinch my biscuit! But one day a freshly made banana loaf completely disappeared. And he remained completely "innocent". I'm telling you, banana bread turns the best of 'em....
Oh, now the first part has disappeared! Two brothers, flat coat retrievers, one super clever trained gun dog for my dad and we got persuaded to take the not so very smart runt as a pet. Hope that makes sense!
The late and legendary DDog1 one managed to open the drawer of my bedside table (too clever for his own bloody good) and ate two brand new bars of this stuff. Thankfully his incredibly strong constitution meant the only after affect was slightly sparkly poo for a few days. He was eleven years old at the time
In his younger days he once jumped up on a kitchen worktop and ate the contents of the sugar bowl. Again, no ill effects whatsoever.
On one particularly memorable walk when DDog2 was a puppy she joyfully led a group of hitherto impeccably behaved dogs on a charge across a golf course
Considering they're dreadful thieves the whippets have actually caused far less mayhem than DDogs 1& 2
DDog swiped three raw homemade beef burgers off the grill pan today as I was just about to put them under but turned round to deal with DCat. Little bigger. It was like they had been magicked away, not a trace left, I thought I was going mad. Luckily I had made extra for the freezer but still...
Little "bugger". Not bigger. FFs autocorrect!!
Stanley Dog is not terribly food orientated but has been known to:
1) Steal and demolish an entire family sized malt loaf from the shopping bag in the back of the car, leaving behind only bits of wrapper and an untouched packet of ham.
2) Acquire and eat 3 advent calendars from the middle of the table.
3) Sneak all the sausages from a lit bbq.
4) Unwrap and eat easter eggs.
5) Raid my bag for dog treats, giving my phone a good old chew in the process.
6) Drag down a wall mounted coat rack to get at the bits of manky sausage in a bag in a coat pocket.
This is the dog that leaves half his dog food uneaten because he gets bored of being in the kitchen.
Last night our dog ate most of a large tub of lurpak, then decided throw up everywhere, hes fine today. hes also ripped our leather settee, ate some earphones, and chewed up my new slippers that i had at christmas. he now sleeps in the kitchen which whenever he goes in at night he looks at me with sorrowful eyes, farts then gets into his bed
I open the dog to the postman and after an hour an ambulance driver knock at the door to ask if we had a Yorkie. I said yes. The he said, "Could you please get him out of the ambulance? We need to head off"
I put DHs bacon baps on the table, but of bacon poking out if the sides. BoyDog managed to curl his lips back, get his teeth onto just the bacon, was pulling back slowly and the nudged the chair so it scraped on the floor. He stopped dead still, teeth still on bacon, eyes on DH who was gobsmacked, then decided to kick it as quick as he could and run off. You could almost see the thought process in his face - well, I'm in the shit anyway cos they've caught me, he'll only throw it away, fuck it I want the bacon.
YoungGirl is a bugger for nicking food. We have a bar upstairs in our house. The stairs are always barriered off so that the dogs can't get up there without us being there (oldgirl would be fine, young girl nicks stuff). One day, YoungGirl kinda sauntered slowly over to the bottom of the stairs, very slowly so no clicky nails on the floor and jumped over the barrier and went straight up the stairs. She went straight behind the bar and grabbed a big tub of peanuts, ripped the lid off and started snaffling the lot. It must have been so well planned as we were straight up the stairs after her and she still managed to get the lid off - she must have known exactly where they were
OldGirl ate her fatboy dogbed. We went downstairs in the morning and there were beans everywhere, and a poor little dog with a very full belly feeling very sorry for herself. Didn't stop her trying to eat her breakfast though, which she vomited up immediately, then ate again. The vets loved her - she was in overnight making sure she didn't get blocked (apparently as its a fatboy one the beans aren't toxic to dogs and won't swell in their system, so we were lucky), and the next day when j collected her the nurses were laughing - she kept farting bean bag beans as she walked.
We do feed our dogs by the way. It may not seem like it though.
Christmas evening just gone, left elderly FIL in charge of the dogs whilst DH and I put a poorly DS to bed. FIL fell asleep with a box of dark chocolates on his lap. One of the dogs ate the whole box plus a tube of Fruit Pastilles.
My Christmas night was spent at the emergency vet hospital where they were thankfully able to treat our poorly pup.
Naughty dog (and naughty FIL who should have known better, but I'm not allowed to say that IRL) but lucky dog.
Our puppy, 4 months old, has just chewed the wall, wallpaper and plaster!
<sigh> I have come downstairs to find one of DS's school shoes has been chewed up. Taking into account they are only two weeks old and cost just shy of £50 it's safe to say I'm not best pleased.
All three dogs are arranged on their sofa with guilt ridden expressions on their faces (and have been for the past hour. Clearly my wrath is still palpable) and DS is cockahoop about being allowed to wear trainers to school
My dog has eaten (amongst many, many other non-food things):
2 X pairs of prescription glasses
The leg off a coffee table
An entire 250g block of butter.
Mine won't even so much as look at food in the kitchen when we are home. However, leave the house and it's fair game. I think the most impressive was the honey dew melon, all bar the outer skin was eaten. We've also had a block of butter demolished, 5 bananas (and the skins), and most recently half a pack of digestive biscuits. Miraculously for a gsd he has guts of steel !
Our late (and very missed) JRT once ate an entire box of ferrero rocher. She got them from the side board whilst we were out. No idea how she got the box open and unwrapped them all, the wrappers were scattered across the living room and she was on her bed looking mildly guilty. She wasn't even sick and lived for a long time after that.
CandleDog is singularly uninterested in food most of the time, thankfully, but does love ice cream and custard! He did once eat the end of a bar of chocolate that had carelessly been left out (not by me!) but was absolutely fine.
DB had a dog when I was a kid (he's older than me) a lovely collie/German Shepherd cross. I don't think she had two brain cells to bump together, but was a really nice dog. She regularly ate boxes of paper tissues, box and all and was never any the worse for it.
