when my doxie is on the bed or the couch she always noses her toys onto the floor and starts making yip yip noises for me to get it for her.why does she do this? is she just spoiled or what for she has always done it :banana:

Yeah, I'd like an answer for that, too. Mr. Butters constantly knocks stuff down then waits for me to pick up after him!

Just like a little kid, pushes toys off their high chair or table so they can watch you pick them up. Good game, your well trained. :appl:

Gigi does that too, she brings a toy and sit on my lap and pushes it on the ground. She then looks at the toy and bark (not all the time)... then she jumps off, picks it up and the process start all over again.:confused: :confused:

Looks like We ALL have been Trained by our Doxie's! :rotfl:

We should at least be awarded ribbons!
Which makes you wonder :scratch: Do the dogs train us faster than we train them? Hmmmmmm

Angel is such an impractical dog. She will perch on the arm of the couch and hold a bone over the edge with her paws to chew and then look surprised when it falls. To her credit, she will jump down on her own to pick it up (weird game :confused: ) and not expect me to... but I often do, or I just hold it for her in the first place :rolleyes: since they do enough jumping as it is.

His variation of this game is this.

I put him up on the bed,
I give him his toy, chewie, bone or what ever.
He chews or plays for around two minutes,
He pushes it off,
He stares at it for a bit,
He jumps down to retrieve it,
He than cry's for me to pick him (and the item) back up.

Buddy played a new variation of the game tonight for almost an hour straight...

Get bobo.
Jump up on bed.
Chew on bobo.
Nose bobo onto floor.
Jump off bed.
Get bobo.
Jump up on bed.
Chew on bobo.
Nose bobo onto floor.
Jump off bed.
Get bobo.
Jump up on bed.
Chew on bobo.
Nose bobo onto floor.
Jump off bed.

I think you get the point. And I'm not kidding, this went on for almost a complete hour. Every time Heidi and I would just nod off for our nap, he'd start it all over!!

OMG! I am so happy you posted this! I thought it was just me. Mine do that too. ALL the time. Guess I'm trained as well.
