Default My dog is a traitor!

I got Toby a little over two years ago, from a shelter. He was about a year old, and he's the best dog in the world.

Bob retired January 1, and I'm still working part-time. Bob started long daily walks and running errands, and then spring came and he's constantly working in the garden or going out to the cottage, etc. He takes the dog everywhere he goes. I'm the one who trained Toby, and spent more time with him up until then. Usually, we leave the house together (Bob, me and the dog) and go fishing or running errands together.

About a week ago, Bob went to a retirement lunch party, and I noticed that Toby laid by the door (like in mourning) while he was gone. Well, today Bob went fishing with a friend, and couldn't take Toby. Toby is lying by the back door, curled up and waiting for Bob to come back. I "lost" MY dog! I tried explaining to Toby that I am the one who rescued him from the shelter, and he should be MY dog. Toby looked at me, and put his head down to await Bob's arrival home. It goes to show you that a dog will bond more closely to the one who spends the most time with them, I guess!

Love on him anyways. He will come around!

My wife's dog is now mine because I love on her whenever I am home, even though my wife is home more.

Pretty dog you've got there. Or had I guess. There always a bacon to help sway him!

Yeah, had a GF who kept getting pissed because 'her' dog followed me around. Food, snacks, play time: all on me.

Time for another dog or two or three. You'll 'hit' eventually. Worst case, they'll come to you because Bob ran out of hands.

Yeah, my kids can't figure out why Ellie whines when I go outside and will listen to me before she listens to them........

Even with a slab of bacon around my neck, I don't think he'd prefer me.

He loves everybody, but I wish he loved me BEST!

Wow, he fell hard for Bob. My pup would sail me down the river for some bacon.

I know!!!! My dog is crazy about peanut butter. Nutso.

I'm brewing today, so I'm going to make him spent grain treats! I'll bribe him with a glorious combination of spent grains and peanut butter. He'll have to love me now.

He's STILL laying at the back door waiting for Bob. I'm brewing, racking beer and wine, listening to music, and having a great day. He's pouting. I think the treats will cheer him up!

I'm waiting for my new GF to arrive. She's got two hyperactive toy poodles. Will be interesting, but she is bringing their crates just in case the greys think more 'toy' than 'poodle'.
