severedtoe: My dog knows that she's not supposed to into the garbage, but if we're not watching she'll do it every chace she gets.  What's funny is that she will act guilty before we even find out she broke the rules.

My dog has a conscience, just no self control.


So she's Catholic?

Next thing you know they'll find evidence that the dogs are better behaved when they think you have food for them.

My wife doesn't try to get away with anything when I'm around. She will wait until I'm done cooking dinner and we're in the living room before she jumps up on the counter to see if I left anything she can eat. She won't do that if we're in there watching. She usually keeps in mind that she lives and dies by my favor. It's all about asserting dominance.

Denver certainly prefers to sneak cat treats when his owner's not home.

My dog knows perfectly well when we're not looking.  She freakin' WAITS for us to turn our backs or get distracted and she'll slink off into the laundry room to eat the cats' food or start gnawing on a shoe one of us left downstairs.

She knows she's being bad and will instantly crouch and do the "guilty belly-crawl" as soon as she's discovered.

In this past week, she's torn apart a sneaker, one of my purses, and the handles of the Calphalon kitchen shears.

//We've only had her for 2 months.  Housebreaking and stopping her from jumping on people were the priorities.

Mine's the same way. We get home and he's crouched as low to the ground as he can possibly get, belly dragging across the carpet, making the biggest puppy dog eyes he can muster, as he slowly hauls himself over to greet us. We call it "the guilty crawl" and start surveying the apartment for the latest round of damage

MaudlinMutantMollusk: And cats just don't give a f*ck if a human is watching or not


Not always. My cat waits until I'm done cooking dinner and we're in the living room before she jumps up on the counter to see if I left anything she can eat. She won't do that if we're in there watching. We just got a video baby monitor for the upcoming baby, and I set it up in the kitchen. Sure enough, she hops up on the counter and I yell out her name. She stopped dead in her tracks, looked around like, "WTF?" Then jumped down and ran into her bedroom.

jehovahs witness protection: My dog is ALWAYS surprised by "experiments"


I'd be pretty surprised if my dog was running experiments as well.  I mean, how do you hold the beakers with paws and such?
