Scratching at the glass and flicking his doggy door to tell me he wants to come inside *sigh*

I thought my kids were quite needy and I just need some me only time, but the noise he is making is not helping.

I am sitting somewhere he can’t see me, so I’m not sure this is what he does when I actually go out.

I can’t even go to the toilet without him following.

Just that really......

Yep I have 6, we all go to the bathroom together, the kitchen together, anywhere in the house I need to go together... They just like being with their people.

Can't imagine locking them all out away from us though, I think they'd probably be doing the same against the glass.

Sometimes you just want to go to the loo without others....

Would be nice. Though I prefer the dogs following me around than when it was toddlers!

I'm pretty sure my dogs think I'm their personal doorperson. They constantly want me to open the door, and then when one is out, the other will sit by the door waiting to be let out. They can't be outside together or they take off, otherwise I would have put in a dog door. Instead it's a full time job to be their doorperson and make sure they're not both outside together.

My geriatric dog barks at the back door in 4 second intervals if he is left outside for more than 5 minutes. He’s lovely but quite high maintenance in his old age.

Our dogs are 13yrs old. 1 is going blind and sits at the back doorstep and barks a couple of times to let you know she is there and wants something. Sometimes she gets a dog treat and sometimes she gets a little bit of cheese. Both her and her sister love cheese, but it is kept to a tiny bit.

ETA that I am extremely proud of them both. There are new neighbours on one side and they have a staffy. Our girls have not barked or whined or even acknowledged his existence.
