Those are all great pictures - must just be in the breed to do this - we have had to resort to putting Shaye on the porch when we eat, she won't stay away, tries to get up on us - if we're eating on the couch, she will jump up and try to take food right off the plate or out of our mouths. And yes, we are trying all sorts of things to keep her off, but nothing works.
Otis is the same way. I just ran to pick up the phone, and I left my pineapple and blueberries on the kitchen table…it took Otis a second and a half to stand up on his back legs and steal all of it...d__n dog. Oh well, at least it was healthy, right?
Mine will counter surf if given the opportunity.
But…I can sit on the couch and eat pizza (or anything for that matter), right in the middle of all 3 of them, and none of them even attempt to try to come near my food:D:D...they'll just stay lying down where they are. Good kids. They won't beg from me (they won't ever get anything that way)...but they beg from my brother (because they've had success with him) :rolleyes:.
Great pictures folks I think the phrase 'Chow Hounds' really applies.
In the month with us Leo has learned that he gets no food while we are eating. So he lays on the rug under the table making sure we don't drop anything. If there is food on the table with no-one around that is fair game, my Naan the other night was a target.
He will 'surf' the counters as in this first week picture, but now if we see him he knows OFF is coming so he pretends that he stretching with a 'What!, Who Me?' look.
