Should you keep dogs that you love even if they do all these things?
I love our two bichons. But they bug me. I don’t know if I’m not cut out to be a dog owner or if most people would be annoyed. What they do is not what I consider dog love. They remind me of whining toddlers. I thought if you have two dogs they’ll play together a lot and take naps. Mine race into the kitchen when I go in there like they’re starved. If I go on the patio they’re right behind me. Then when I sit down out there they sit and stare at me wanting to go back inside. They have a doggie door so they can do that but now they’re afraid to use it since the carpenters were using that particular door to go to the restroom. When I sit at my desk they want me to play fetch. After that they start whining and staring at me for something-I dont know what. It’s a relief when they go to bed at 7pm. I can breathe again. No; I will not take them for a walk in 103 degrees. Besides; they’d hate it. They or one of them is going #1 on the Persian rug before sunup in the exact same place. I can smell it each morning when I get up.
Is it me? Or is this normal bichon behavior? I just now told them to back off and they went into the dark, chilly bathroom to nap.
