    Default You cant fool me !!

    When i hang out the washing i usually have a Bullmastiff watching me. The hose and tap are just near the clothesline so while he's around the other side of the house snoozing , i get the shampoo and collar ready on the windowsill above the tap.

    I then start hanging out the washing ready to pounce on him the second he walks around the corner but he never shows. I make plenty of noise so he knows i'm there but by the end of load he still hasnt walked into my trap.

    Bugger it !! I'll just walk around and grab him, then carry, drag, pull, fight him to the bathing area. So i'm all jee'd up ready for a fight only to find him buried underneath our 4x4. He knew damn well what i was up to ! But how ??

    I've noticed he's picked up on my 'bath time' vibe before so we dont even mutter the word around him these days but this time i had it sussed and thought for sure i'd outsmarted him.

    He chases the hose when i water the garden but he's onto me there aswell....always staying just out of my reach and he's to fast and strong to tackle when he's running after the water.

    Dead set he's smarter than i think and the look on his face says it all.......You cant fool me Dad !!

    If my dogs hear me get 2 plastic bags out of the cupboard and then start folding them, they immediately go berserk because they know its walkies time. If I dont fold them they dont reac at altl LMAO

    Hahaha very clever boy! They know! I have to be sneaky when I go to brush Cyrus because if he sees me with a comb or spray in my hand he will run as fast as he can and hide under the bed.

    I used to have a shih tzu that used to hide behind the couch when he heard the word "bath" but LOVED his brushes.

    Yep lol.., we made a deal. I load the washer and hang it out, she folds, irons (somtimes) and puts them away. I reckon i come out a winner there as i hate putting anything away, especially clothes. That plus she does about twice the workhours i do so i better do somthing to keep her happy. I'm a good little house husband.

    That's hilarious Sean, they're clever buggers aren't they ?? My little dogs hated bath time, when I started filling the laundry trough they'd run out the dog door and hide, howl when caught then shiver and be so dramatic, but this dog loves baths, doesn't matter if it's under the cold hose, in the bath or the shower, first dog I've had that loves baths ...

    You are a good house husband ... my hubby is good at bringing in the washing, he folds it nicely and sorts it - better than his hanging out skills, he hangs two pairs of his explorer socks on one peg and hangs shirts by the shoulders ... unless I do some serious ironing we look like hunch-backs when we go out

    I have that kind of problem when I'm trying to catch the dog for a walk. She's only just starting to change her mind about the pre-walk game of chase me.

    So I would just tell her I'm shutting the back door, and shut it if she didn't come - for at least five minutes. Sometimes longer. So now she comes in, and I can catch her.

    I reckon Bullmastiff bath time - starts any time you can catch him. Never mind hanging washing out or not. Catch him, then get ready the equipment. Or get ready the equipment every day and don't bath him.

    Note - my dog knows the difference between me going to the fridge and getting milk out for my coffee and getting yogurt out for my breakfast. She can tell this from the far end of the back yard or from sound asleep on the lounge. She's not quite sure the difference between toast for jam or toast for promite. I'm not entirely sure she cares - she'd be happy with either, she's just not likely to get any of the jam toast.

    Yep, it's amazing how well they listen to our routines and work out what we are up to without even seeing us. My Ridgeback was always listening for the sound of car keys. The second he heard it he would start to bark. Kinda like a reminder to "Take me, take me".

    Now when you leave for work at 4.30 am it wares pretty thin with the rest of the household who are trying to sleep so i'd have to slide the keys of the bench very slowly. Even then the slightest jingle of 2 keys touching each other would set him off. This would mean i'd have to bolt for the door, jump in the car and take off and hope he didnt wake the neighbours aswell. He's been gone for nearly 10 months now yet i still find myself sneaking out, stepping over a Bullmastiff who snores so loud that a gun shot wouldnt wake him from his sleep.
