Food Guarding Royalty

Its a good thing that her majesty didnt really have a bunch of hungry peasants to feed, because Im afraid it would be very ugly. If you are reading this because you are researching doxies, KNOW THIS: They are food possessive. Luckily, our kids were told this from day one, so they dont mess with her bowl of chow. I, however, as you will see in the video below, do. Only because its mildly amusing to me how she will lay near a full bowl of food and seem completely uninterested, UNTIL someone else goes near it. She has ripped cat fur out of the cat over a few nuggets of kibbel. She is serious about her food folks. If you have a child who will not stay away from the dog bowl, such as an infant who doesnt know any better, or a child who just doesnt listen, then either feed the doxie somewhere away from everyone and monitor the situation or...choose another breed. Do not be fooled by the seemingly disinterested dog laying near the food dish. It is a trap.

A wiener blog! Yay! ~follow~

You know, *I* don't really like it when people go near my food either. I'd really rather they didn't! LOL

Yeah, you are getting some serious stink eye from the princess. LOL!

I think it's hilarious that food is actually IN the bowl. Both the bulldogs eat like they have never see food before - they chow down and eat everything all at one time. I guess they realize since they are going to be in their crates while I am at work, they better enjoy it!

I found your blog through alwayswanted4.

I am a dachshund devotee too and live with my black and rust doxie, Liesel. My first one was Fritz and he was the traditional red brown. He lived to be 14 1/2 and was a doxie with his quirts. Right after he died, I found Streusel and she came to live with me. She was 6 and also a red brown color. She never looked her age, only had a few telltale gray chin hairs and was very fit and looked 2 and not 14 1/2. I dropped her off at the vet's to have her yearly teeth cleaning and she never came home. I still miss her and it's been a year and a half. She has had her quirts too. My Liesel came to me at 9 weeks and she's now a year and a half. She is a sweet, loving dog but has her quirks too. Do I sense a pattern? Yes, doxies have quirks but I love the breed.
