I bought her a new bowl and she has taken it and hid it somewhere. She dumped the food and took off with it. Do your dogs ever do this to you?

Hehe, that's actually pretty cute. My dog has never taken his food bowl and hidden it (he's probably scared that I'll stop feeding him if he does that...hehe). However, he does enjoy taking his bones outside with him and burying them in random spots (he'll look at me out of the corner of his eye to see if I'm watching). There has also been an occasion where he dumped his water out of his bowl and chewed the heck out of the side of the bowl, he was telling me that he's bored I think.

I hate it when my dogs dumps the water bowl. I usually step in it barefooted or in my socks before I see it...Its not to pleasant. They do get bored , I know mine do. Thanks for sharing :)

Last week I thought someone stole my lab's dog toys because three of those are missing. And three days ago, I just followed her secretly and to my surprise, all the toys that are missing are under the old fridge!

We have a small Min-Pin named Sammy and he is the most high strung dog I've ever had. What a contrast with my late male Boxer. He was so laid back he would lay down in the middle of a trail after 5 min. of walking. Anyway, Sammy was 11 months old when we first got him from a woman who raises Min-Pins. She had purchased him for breeding purposes only; he was not a pet. He never was inside of a house. He only saw outside in her huge running grounds and his kennel area. After I brought him home into our house, it seemed as if he was in shock. He kept looking at the ceilings (LOL) for minutes at the time. It took him about 24 hours to realize that this was his new living quarters. When he finally realized this is where is new home was going to be, he went into some kind of happy fever fit by running all over the house, jumping in the bed and on the sofa (He is quite the jumper). In the process, he broke an antique vase of mine and spilled a couple of plants, but he calmed down after a bit. It probably was just too much to take in at one time for him. It was just really wierd!! Anyway, my dog didn't dump his food out of his bowl before taking off with it, he is far to greedy for that, but he did have the habit of gobbling up his food and running away with his bowl to play with it. I got tired of this and purchased a cat bowl (the ones where the rim of the bowl comes down to the floor). The dog couldn't pick it up and his bowl now stays in place. He also has the funny habbit of stealing our socks; nothing else but socks. It's a game and I let him. He never ruins them, he just likes to run away with them and pile them on the couch. LOL. He's quite the funny character. He could be a comedian dog. Animals sure put a laugh in our day. What would we do without them?

My dog has never hidden his food bowl but he's hidden other things... like my bra!

lol....I hope my dog doesn't think of that. She already gets every sock she can find. She then makes sure we see her with it, and then she runs like crazy to hide it.

That is why I don't buy dog bowls any more. lol! I bought 2 pretty green dogs food bowls and would later find them outside with teeth marks all over them. They were plastic and I think they enjoy chewing on plastic things. One time I put some food in a pie tin and the dog picked up the tin and all the food fell out but he seemed not to notice. He carried the tin to where he wanted to eat and placed it on the floor - and couldn't figure out where the food was. Of course he looked at me like it was all my fault while I'm laughing uncontrollably. Now they all eat from old cookware - an old frying pan that I got for 25 cents at a yard sale, for example. They don't carry the metal pans off and hide them.

I had a dog that didn't do that but if you gave him a plate with scraps on it once he was full and there was still food on it he'd push the plate under the couch. I think he was trying to save it for later but I'm not sure. He was funny to watch as he pushed it that way. I'd never had a dog do that before. Of course before him, he was a shih-tzu, I'd only had big dogs and they ate everything you gave them. Good luck in find the dish.

If she gets food on a paper plate she tries to take it to bed to eat. Or she will clean it and bring it to me , place it at my feet and look up at me wanting more. She is a shitzu/pom mix. I still haven't found that bowl lol .
