What Does Your Dog Do When Home Alone?
Home Alone: What’s Your Dog Doing?
Your dog may be such a good doggie – doesn’t bark much, doesn’t make a mess, keeps to himself – only offering up his soft little head occasionally for a friendly pat. Good doggie … good, good doggie. And the calmer and more stable the dog, the happier he will be to simply curl up and go to sleep while you’re gone. Right?
If you are an average pet owner, you must have wondered what goes on to keep your dog amused while you are away. And why does he look so guilty when you get home? Here are some things you might notice that make you wonder just what went on during the day:
- There are empty pizza boxes shoved under the couch.
- There’s hair suspiciously the same color as your dog’s in your hairbrush – and on your good dress.
- There are cocktail olives in the toilet bowl.
- Your bedroom furniture has been rearranged to put the bed by the window.
- You’re starting to receive email messages from someone called Feline Fantasy.
- There are traces of kitty litter on the remote control.
- Leftover roast beef is missing from the fridge again.
- There’s yet another empty milk carton in the fridge. (Hey, somebody puts them there.)
- There are several calls to psychic hotlines listed on your phone bill.
If you suspect your dog s a bit more active than you thought, try placing a hidden video camera to find out for sure. Or pop in unexpectedly on occasion. Meanwhile, check out these photos to see what you might learn.
