    Cool FT dogs don't make good house dogs...GDG

    I thought I would share what my FT dogs look like inside the house...I tell you they are holy terrors!!

    Bullet is 9 years old and is the one next to me snuggling. (Yes he has a pillow on the ground, but why would he lay there??)
    Tango is 2 years old and is on the right pillow.
    Riot is 6 months old and is on the left pillow.

    All three are FT breedings, all three are pretty good house dogs, my only complaint is they do not have any water bowl manners and they slosh water all over my floors. They also have to play musical dog beds before they settle down and that includes who is gonna try and kick Bullet out of his spot, it's a PITA when I'm trying to watch TV!! Absolutely no manners!

    Priceless! So glad that they actually allow you to have a comfortable spot. Thanks for sharing!
    When it stops being fun, I will find something else to do with my time and money.

    Totally out of control, too much dog for your house. I bet they are terrible to hunt with.

    People that spoil their dogs and then complail about it! I know that I would not do that. Dee Dee has a dog bed behind one of the recliners in the den so that she is not in the way when I must get out of bed during the night. I guess that she misses me so much that she must sleep on the floor on the side of the bed that I get out on and I have to step over her. She is good though about getting out of the way when I say "move" at 3 o'clock in the morning and will not come back to "her spot" until I have returned to bed. I guess that our dogs really are what we make them. Bill

    I think the whole not good in the house is due to an owner that does not work his dog. gotta love a Lab. I wish i could sleep like one.

    I like how they put their heads on the pillow portion of the dog bed.
    All success belongs to the dog, all failure to the trainer.

    Pam...I use to only have the green one with the sides (it's 10+ years old). It was Flash's but all the dogs would jocky to try and lay on that pillow, so for Christmas I splurged and got two more with "sides" - they just love them. worth the little extra $$ in my opinion.
