Default Spoos in Charge Here?

Hi Everyone,

Do you have any stories to share about your poodles getting what they want?

Yesterday, Louie our standard poodle stood near the center of the living room and stared down my husband. That didn't work so Louie laid down right in front of my husband's chair, while he was reading the newspaper. That didn't work so Louie rolled over on his back and stared and stared. That didn't work so Louie got up, came to the armrest of the chair, and gave his very best stare-down look for several minutes.

Out of the blue, my husband said, "Spoos in charge here?????"

Right away, they both went to the back door, and my husband put on his shoes and coat and hat---and out the door they both went for a long walk!

I guess we all know that the Spoos in charge around our house!

I have never had a begging dog before...they learn early than if I'm eating, they might as well go and lay down somewhere. Either it's Lola's polite begging, or my old age, but I have been wrapped around he paw. She loves things like bananas, apples, salad greens, green beans, etc etc ....and today she even at a manderin orange section...the only thing she hasn't likedso I keep telling myself that at least it's healthy human food.

My husband can't believe I'm being such a wimp...LOL...but she always sits 3 feet away and watches me...so polite about it.

There is no doubt in my house that the spoo is in charge lol. He rules the roost. I have to laugh at him sometimes... Like when it is cold and he doesn't want to get out from under the blanket, he will pull it over his head, like it is a do not disturb sign.

How fun is it to own/be owned by such a smart breed

Famous last words here too. 15-yrs ago when I got married and my wife wanted a dog, my requirements for an inside dog were:

1) No shedding or Drooling
2) No begging at the table
3) No sleeping in our bed
4) No treating them like they are human

Oh well, got 1 out of 4 ....
and went out and got a second one to boot !

Molly always lets me know who's in charge here.....This morning when I gave her a 'cookie' she took it into the bedroom, buried it under her pillow then came back to the kitchen, stood in front of the 'doggie cabinet' & barked. I opened the cabinet door & she got what she wanted, (I keep an open plastic box of chewies here) a bully stick! She was now happy, End Of Story!

MollyMuiMa, look on the bright side, at least it was her pillow she hid her cookie under. I have found some of the most unpleasant things buried under MY pillow. I will never get over getting poked in the rib by a raw beef rib in my bed! That was creepy. Bug likes to carry his knuckle bones onto my bed and 'hide' them by me when I'm asleep (I quess so the cat won't get them?). Nothing like feeling something on the bed with you and reaching over to pet the poodle and finding a big old bone tucked there instead. :/

BK-I wish it was only her pillow! I too find 'surprises' in my bed! I usually check before bedtime but sometimes I miss one and I have to follow my nose ........LOL!

Bonz does this..she LOVES playing fetch with my boyfriend. Her version of fetch means dropping a tennis ball on the floor and kicking it purposefully under a piece of furniture. She loves watching daddy huff and sigh and move the couch, fridge, or bed, kneel laboriously down, and use a shop vac to retrieve a ball from the shadows.

Ha, the real question is, does your poodle -- toy, mini, moyen, or standard -- ever not get what he or she wants?
