Garbage Dog

Aj has been so good about staying out of the trash I didn't even think about the leftovers from dinner two nights ago when I got out of the truck. I had the trash bag between the driver seat and the door. Yesterday, I left AJ in the truck to take care of some business inside our terminal. I was gone about 45 minutes.

Well, when I opened the door…you guessed it...food boxes all over the driver side floor and not a scrap of leftovers left over. Even the bag was licked clean.:eek: AJ, knowing he had gotten into something he shouldn't have, ran back into the sleeper berth area, jumped on the bed and made himself as small as he could, crying the whole time.

I couldn't get him in serious trouble because it was partly my fault for leaving the very tempting garbage. He already felt bad about it anyway. Still, I can't just let him get away with it. I ended up scolding him and leaving it at that.

He slept so well with that very full tummy that he snored so loud I had to push him a couple times to quiet him. Since he ate all that food, he has had to poop five times. I would, too...that was a lot of food even for me.

Today, he has a case of the toots from all the green beans he ate yesterday. Each time he lets one, he looks behind himself to see where the noise came from.:rolleyes: Hopefully, he gets over this soon. He might have to sleep on the catwalk tonight!

Trash will henceforth be removed as soon as I am near receptacle.

Cheers!

Wow - I'm still laughing! Never trust your basenji 😃

The 'good' smell was to much for poor AJ. What else could he do? :rolleyes:

Perfect! With all the consequences… 🆒 Would like to see a pic of your face when you found it out (and of the bugged expression at night, because of the snoring and pooping :p )

Did he get any pumpkin pie for dessert? That would at least make all that garbage come out firm.

No pumpkin pie…but there was cheese on that spaghetti. I think that's what kept him from having the runs. He sure has had a lot to get rid of today, though! 😃

How funny..mainly because it wasn't my dog for once…haha. Of course also because I can imagine the toot smell in that cabin..so confined, nowhere to go to get away..

It's winter but the windows will have to come down a bit after each toot. And I don't mean toot of the truck horn either. 😃

Mine would have been in that garbage 2 minutes after you let go of it! I laughed at the image of that stuffed little dog snoring away, haha!

I'm still LMAO- I can definitely picture it-especially after Shadow ate 4 pizza buns one time!

Funny,

Awww! He's just trying to get attention;) I have the same issue with the snoring. Never had it with the last B boy. Arleigh is easier too stop than my last boyfriend!!!!:D

I just laughed my head off with the mind bubble this gave me. 😃

This was hilarious! Mine is crazy about butter. One time he at 1/2 of a stick in one swallow! YUCK. Anyone else have this issue.
