My dog is my best friend ever since I got him for my 10th birthday. He has his off days where he can be grouchy but to me he is still the playful puppy he once was. This happens quite frequently and is on going. When my mother isn't around he follows me everywhere, although I love him it can get kind of annoying. He's even here now staring at me... I don't know when this first occurred but I know I'd leave him in kitchen with door closed and heading upstairs, he'd be up there in one of the bedrooms asleep. Now, he can scrape the door to open it but only when its ajar; when the door is shut fully however he is yet able to grow 6ft tall and turn the handle! Note: he's a small shiatsu. A few times it would happen in various parts of the house me closing one door on him and finding him in a total different spot. Once he was put out the back yard with the door bolted shut only to hear whining coming from the bathroom!
I'm not scared by it, just a little creeped out but I once got in trouble with my parents over it. They had gone for a drive and it was just me and the dog. As I said he follows me. I can hear him going up and down the stairs, scratching at doors trying to find me... How cute.
So anyway I was on the computer, door is closed to the right of me, its a small room so can see everything. The dog is lying down on the floor beside chair and I'd often put my hand down to stroke him making sure he's alright. So then a few hours later I heard the front door downstairs opening and my mam came up to me she asked, "Why was the dog outside? You know he can't be outside with all the greyhounds around". I was astounded and dumbfounded and immedietely looked to where he had been and nothing.
I heard paws pounding up the stairs and panting and I suddenly became oddly uncomfortable. I was trying to explain I didn't leave him out he was right here, and why would I just open the door to let him out? Which they didn't believe. The dog came in looking very pleased with himself anyway (groan).
