Sure makes my life easier but I got to say it: my dog is a chump, especially when it comes to the stuff I do to her. She lets me get away with just about anything.
At the moment, she has skin allergies and she can't keep from scratching herself until she bleeds......That's why she's wearing this doofy collar for the next couple of days
She still can't manage going up stairs with the damn collar, and when she eats or drinks, it's just painful to watch---so I take it off of her on occasion.
And then I put it back on.
The putting back on part--that's what boggles me. She just sits there, looking sad, as I slide the hated object on, mangling her poor ears in the process.
Sure she backs away a bit, and twists her head, but that's it. She lets me do it. No growling, no "WTF are you doing this for?" Just a sigh and, when I'm done, a head-shake--clunk rattle rattle
No way she understands its for her own good. She must think (if she thinks at all) I have some sadistic idea of what constitutes a good time. But she doesn't complain and she still comes when I call her. Usually. Even when she sees I'm holding the thing.
It's interesting that we've managed to develop dogs until they're so obedient, they'll put up with discomfort or silliness just because we tell them to. I wonder if Scientists could work on some kind of doggie brain pill we can feed our own young at least until we don't have to live with the offspring any more.
Here's some entertainment based on DCS (Doggie Chump Syndrome). I don't know who the biscuit pooch is, but it's providing us with yet another example of dogs Putting Up With Anything.
