Social network for pugs and their people.
I have often wondered if we just let Pugsley AKA Tubby keep eating if at some point he would actually stop on his own? We found out last night........Ok, so our roommate made a pizza and left 1/2 of it on the kitchen table, we left to go bowling. We got home after stopping for a late night breakfast. We gave all 3 dogs some leftover "doggie bags" Pugsley was unusually picky and didn't really want to eat anything, well, a tiny bit. So we went to bed, he sleeps with us.
Dave (the husband), fell right to sleep. Tubby and I were watching TV. Tubby was breathing funny and kept walking around the bed and then flopping down for a few seconds and doing it all over again. He did this for about an hour and just couldn't get comfy enough to fall asleep. I thought he was hot so I brought some water in the room and he drank a few times and then did his walking and flopping routine again. I started to get worried, but he finally fell into a fitful sleep.
When we woke up this morning and were drinking coffee with our roommate he told us a story.....
Last night he woke up and went into the kitchen and was getting a drink, as he was drinking he was standing in front of the table staring at it in a half asleep daze, suddenly he realized that Tubby was sprawled out on the table with his head down looking up at him with huge eyes and his tongue hanging out panting looking very guilty. Then he noticed that he was laying next to what WAS 1/2 a pizza and only a part of 1 piece was left, he had left it out in case we wanted some when we got home. Apparently Tubby had other ideas!!! Our roommate said you could tell he had been laying there for a while.
So, I guess EVENTUALLY he will stop eating on his own, but not till he is about to burst!! I wonder if he was waiting to feel a little better and was gonna finish off that last piece?????!!!!!!!
