Do you have a needy dog?

Do you have a canine shadow? Does your dog follow you into the bathroom? Does he try to get himself invited on car trips and steal food straight from the table?

You might have a needy dog.

We have a pack full of needy dogs. Luke likes to invade the bathroom and insists on pets by bumping your hand with his head until you oblige.

Charlie Machete likes to stick his head in the shower, chew things that aren’t meant to be toys and snuggle-by-force.

Scooby is a food thief and habitual trashcan upturner.

Minnie is… Actually, Minnie isn’t very needy at all. She just requires a lot of grooming. Other than that, she’s perfect.

During my birthday weekend, I missed every one of our needy forever and foster dogs. Big thanks to our friends and family who stepped up and took care of the pack while we were out of town. I know that navigating the neediness of someone else’s dog can be extra funny and extra frustrating.

Do you have a needy dog? How do you deal with it?

About crystalwayward

I live with two formerly wayward dogs. I care deeply about the environment, and I think gardening is a revolutionary act.
