I’m starting a new series of blog posts titled “My Dog Is Weird” today because it’s my pup Cody’s 2nd birthday! It will be short, and each one will contain one weird thing. I hope you enjoy them (we sure do, after we’re done shaking our heads)!
Most nights, after he’s tucked into his enormous dog bed under a comfy fleece blanket and asleep, I go take a shower (it’s a walk-in). After my shower I slide open the door, which is apparently his signal to get up, trot over to the shower, and proceed to lick the water off the walls and floor.
What? Why? He’s awesomely house-trained, and NEVER poops or pees in the house so he has a bowl of water in the bedroom that he can drink out of all night if he wants. It’s the same water, just comes out of the sink instead of the shower!
We used to fight this behavior and tell him “no!” when he did it thinking this was dirty wash-water. And, to be brutally honest, our shower isn’t NECESSARILY the cleanest in the world, probably. Regardless, after the 14 months we’ve lived together we’ve started to compromise. I give the front corner of the shower a heavy rinse after I’m done and he’s allowed his front paws in but not his back.
So it’s all SLURP SLURP SLURP SLURP SLURP after a shower. What a weirdo.
Do your pets do anything strange like this? In the comments I hope you’ll post something weird your pet (or child) does that keeps you entertained and confused!
As always, thanks for reading, and you’re welcome!
