I don’t know how many times I have spoken with married couples with dogs – it doesn’t have to be Chihuahuas – and the men in the family always seem to be the ones that feed them from the couch, or right from their plate! Why is that? My husband has ALWAYS fed the dogs from the couch, fighting sneaky puppies that steal nibbles off the plate.
Yes, Smoochie quickly figured out the pattern and joined in the pack for couch begging. Thing is, if I happen to be eating something on the couch, they know better than to beg from me. They get food in a bowl from me! THEIR bowl – not my plate!
