I have a pit mix who is a mess.
If I’m on the computer and he wants to go play/for a walk, he walks behind the chair and pushes the plug out of the socket and places a paw on my foot.
If I am laying on the couch watching TV and he wants a spot on the couch, he goes to the window, starts barking and freaking out. While I am looking for whatever he’s barking at, he sneaks away and sprawls out on the couch, leaving me no room at all…
Anyone else have sneaky furbabies?

That’s hilarious, what a smart pup you have! Anytime Darling Husband gets up from his spot on the couch our lab mix will curl up in his spot (she’ll even run in from another room when she hears him move!).
It’s not sneaky, but when she wants me to open the sliding porch door to lay on the balcony she’ll stick her nose between the vertical blinds and knock them around to make as much noise as possible, then come sit in front of me and stare.

My dog learned that we (used to) usually let him out and then feed him. Now, he acts like he HAS. TO. GO. NOOOOOOW! We let him out and he turns around and walks right back in and to his bowl.
The other day he didn’t even get his back legs out the door….

Oh that reminds me so much of my black lab that passed last year!! I have 3 other dogs now but they aren’t nearly as manipulative and thoughful as that dog ever was.
She absolutely knew she was not allowed to sleep in the bed with me but she knew if she could smell alcohol on me, it was on. She would wait until i fell asleep and then get in bed knowing i was too tired/drunk to wake up and kick her out.
She also loved to stand by close to the dinner table. Of course as soon as i yelled at her, she’d run over to the dog door and stick her head out of it. She’d fake like she was going to go outside and just stand there. Eventually she’d work her way back over to the table in hopes of catching a scrap or two…

Our old cat Smee used to know how to open doors. I didn’t pee alone for 10 years. He also used to like to snuggle on your lap when you were doing something, but if you didn’t want him on you and fended him off he would slooooooooooooooooooooowly creep his way in like maybe you wouldn’t notice. It was hilarious.
Glory grabs acorns off our back deck and brings the little ones inside in her mouth so you can’t see them until she spits them out on the floor and bats them around the house. I swear we have a forest of them under our furniture…
Darling Husband usually feeds them in the morning since he gets up so much earlier than me. When I get up he’s usually gone, and the cats try to trick me into giving them second breakfast. Sigh. I think they’re actually hobbits….
