Is your DOG trying to kill you?

My dog is constantly lying in the middle of the hallway, doorway, kitchen floor, you name it. If she's not doing that, then she's following me around, usually VERY close to my legs and ahead of me. She also likes to lie at the foot of my bed. I'm constantly tripping over her. Grrr!!! I have to be so careful as to where I step. It's cute and yet SOOO annoying at times. I always tell her she's trying to kill me! LOL!! Does your dog do the same as well?

I have a boxer and he is huge, yet he finds the middle of the kitchen floor to lay. I know exactly what you mean, and you trip over a huge dog, most of the time you wind up on the floor =)

Sure, my Golden Retriever looks cute and innocent but, in her haste to go out for a walk (or so she leads me to believe, she's tried to push me down the steps a couple of times. And then there are the constant booby-traps of bones, balls and chew toys placed on those same steps or in the dark hall between my bedroom and the bathroom. Gotta go...I think she knows I'm writing this...If I turn up missing, you know who did it.... :D

There for a sec I thought you were talking about my dog, well dogs. I have a German Shephard, a Rottweiler, and a hound with legs like a deer. They like to stay just out of my periphrial, so that when I turn around, BAM- there they are. When I go from one room to another- they come with me. When I go into the bathroom and shut the door, they come in my bedroom and lay by the door. If I'm home, they want to be wherever I am. If I'm in my room and the gate is up, they lay at the gate. When I go out, they wait at the fence for me to come back, so they can come in and be by me. They are sweet babies, but I live in a short double-wide and I have 3 kids and a boyfriend as well. Talk about a full house.

We don't have dogs in our house but when I read your story I felt like I want one. Even if it is annoyong I think that it is really cute! Maybe, your dogs really love you that they don't want you out of their sight. Real Cute!

perhaps i can say that my dog is even much worse. as i am walking around the house sometimes without much care, feeling alone, the dog will suddenly appear at my feet playfully. boy, you can just imagine how many times i have tripped because of this. yes, our dogs can kill us if we have second floors and we do not secure a good hold on the railings whenever we manage it climbing up or down. you can just think as to how many cups and glasses got broken because of this thing happening time and again. even if i try to be ready for its occurrence, there are still times when i get out of balance.

Sounds like my little daughter except that she's stand in the middle of everything an following me around. Sometimes she even hanging on my legs...hehehe..... Seriously, my friends dogs done that quite alot. I always tripping over them but my friends wouldn't let me get in their way instead of the dogs get in my way. So most of the time...I'll just give them some dog toys for them to chew or some special dogs ball that can playing interactive with them. Problem solved for now....phew....

Oh yes. I know exactly what you are going through. It sounds cruel but I had to squash my dog against the wall as he tried to overtake me on the stairs a few times and nearly killed me. He learned. Now he times it better so that I reach the bottom before he starts. Or sometimes, when he sits right in the way at the top of the stairs, I poke start him so that he can go first. It really confuses him when I just walk across the landing to another room and he makes a 'false start'. He almost killed me on our walk today by insisting on stopping directly in my path at short notice so that I tripped over him. Several times. He doesn't usually get right under my feet as I just tread on him. My husband is always cursing him though as he gets tripped.

my dog to do it also, I think we need to be careful because we would hurt our dog or we would fall down.
