    DefaultWhy? When they know it is wrong.

    Yesterday was the most vivid example.

    Hershey is loose downstairs, the trust level is increasing everyday. I am upstairs in my 'office' working. I hear her run up the steps, down the hall to the door to the office. She sits there all proud, ears perked, with one of my DWs sneakers in her mouth. I tell her drop it and she runs out of sight. I get up and she is sitting at the top of the stairs, same pose. I say, 'Drop it'. She runs down the stairs and sits there, same pose. I say, 'Drop it' and she is off. Down I go, I see her, same pose, 'Drop it'. She drops it and is off to the family room. I go into the family room, she is under a table, laying down, head on the floor, ears flopped. newspaper pulled out of the recycling is shredded on th floor.

    I swear she knew she had done wrong, and was teasing me with the sneaker to get me to come see.

    When you said "ears perked up" I got the picture. I call them evil ears. Sometimes when they get in that "grab it and run" mode, the ears are on top of their head, sometimes almost touching. Whenever you see the evil ears, they have something forbidden and will not give it up. Not sure what it's all about, but you were working, and HK probably wanted your attention. It's hard to be angry with them when they are so cute about it.

    I am sure that is is play, Dweck. But not sure that it is boredom.

    We had a pretty active day yesterday. I was feeling guilty about her dental work the day before and stayed home. Morning walk, feed, off to the dog park for some running and retrieving at the river, home, walk, one hour left alone, of to a local dog park, run for an hour or so, and back home. I was upstairs for about 15 minutes when this happened. Normally, she would have been alone after the morning walk/feed for another hour after this happened.

    Chuy does this all the time, and has been doing it more frequently lately.

    He'll parade right by me(repeatedly if necessary) to make sure i see him. He's walked by my office desk trailing the blanket off the couch behind him ;D, and lately he's REALLY taken to the remote control.

    he doesn't chew on it, but will bring it, and sit in plain view holding it in his mouth for up to 10-15 minutes waiting for me to get off the computer and come retrieve it.

    and i no longer chase him, i make him 'drop it' but he's still doing this. :
