    Rider. Oh my god. The licking is insane. He is CONSTANTLY licking his junk. Like, oh my gerd all the time. Or my sheets. I don't understand it.

    He steals socks. And boxers.

    And he must be touched all. the. time. No one can get attention unless it is him. It's getting better, but still annoying. Oh, and he climbs the crate.

    I should stop... It sounds like I hate him. Haha. Can I blame it on the BC? When he acts ACD he's perfect. ;)

    Harlow is perfect. Every once in a while, she will whine if she is bored and that gets old fast. Or when she steals ALL of my leg room in the bed. And she will pace if she wants something and and wants it RIGHT NOW.

    It's not my dog ... But my parents mix has the most irritating temperament ever (I'm glad she isn't mine :/ because we just don't mesh) she doesn't want to play but she doesn't want the other dogs to play either & tries to rush out of nowhere & nip them aggressively as they run by, when I moved back home I realized how bad this problem was (my folks, bless their hearts know nothing about dog body lingo or behavior thought she was playing & it was getting to the point wher she was hurting bear when he would try. To play fetch & she was constantly following him round & pestering him. So I started getting btw them & making her to somewhere & lie down during play. If she he up she gets fussed at. Now when we play she automatically goes to her place, if she goes to get up all I have to do is snap my fingers & she lies back down.

    I hate to say this, because I really do love dogs ... But that particular dog just annoys the crisp outta me :/

    Solo is a cranky old jerk of a dog. He lulls me into thinking he's changed his ways by being good for months/years, then proves me wrong. Today he attacked Pan because she went near him as Nathan was cooking bacon. Luckily she's fast and got away with only a scraped muzzle.

    It's super annoying living with an unpredictable jerk.

    Backup got his ass thrown into a wall, by Sloan, today for trying to hump her. She's not in heat, she's not even coming into heat.

    Yesterday he threw up on my computer and chest out of excitement.

    I really want nothing to do with him right now.

    Oh gosh, the licking, it's a lick-fest around here and it drives me batty. Holly's loud, sounds like she's covered in Peanut butter and determined to clean every speck off. Rig licks his.... well, he's a boy and I swear he takes it to an art form. At least he looks darned proud that I noticed when I look at him and say, "Oh for Pete's sake, not in PUBLIC! Go to your room if you need a little *Private Time*!" He doesn't, but always looks a little put out that I don't throw money or something.

    There's a couple more little funny/annoying idiosyncrasies, but I'll have to do another post or I'll be late for work. :)

    Gambit's staring. It's creepy and stalker-like, and he does it to me all the time. Do you know what it's like to wake up, open your eyes, and find a pointed face about 5 inches from yours?

    He's a few steps off of propping my body in a rocking chair and wearing my clothes. "Mother! What have you done!"

    Storee barks. I know, the irony. Bark bark bark bark. You would think she's a sheltie at times, but I get the play by play of every moment of her day. We have an xpen setup with the dog door so she doesn't drag everything that isn't nailed down outside (she's tried to pull a huge dog bed, a broom, eaten shoes....). So she'll push the xpen out enough to see into the kitchen and the second there's an unattended toast crust, if I don't have it to her fast enough, bark bark bark!

    Ticket has to herd the cat, which I'm used to, but if the cat gets up in the middle of the night he's frantic to go find her so he can sleep. I thought the kids were bad with stuffed animals.

    Kilt is cute and almost perfect, but when we're outside for a walk she's made my ears bleed a few times with a shrill high pitched barking screaming noise. Like a sheltie. I'm seeing a pattern but no, they are not shelties!

    "Dry mouth licking" (that's the best way I can describe the sound, u know when they move their tongue around in their mouth & make a smacking sound, then swallow VERY LOUDLY REPEATEDLY) I can see a few times to "whet the whistle" but five or so minutes of it & I tell them to stop ... I hate it, & they seem to do it more then they are anxious or whatever, I hate the noise & can't sleep unless they stop :/

    Eve is not a licker, but she is a fur chewer and in the middle of the night I will hear her incisors clank together while she itches her fur. Gah. Not a fan.

    Dusk is a licker. I hate that. He actually violently fornicates with his mouth while he's cleaning himself, which makes it that much more disgusting to me.
