Dogs! Their personalities are so different, just like people, right? Their antics can be so crazy!

That little shih tzu sounds like quite the character. I'll bet he totally runs the house where he lives with his doggie parents!

And yup they do make plastic topper or lids for canned dog/cat food. I use 'em all the time with my cats food. And when I am using canned dog food for thunder training or applying meds to sensitive leery suspicious Gracie I can make a can of that wonderful yucky stinky stuff last for days. I put the lid on and stick it back in fridge for the next day's training session.

I let her lick the wet food from the bottom of a tupperware to either distract her from what we are doing and/or counter condition her to scary stuff like thunder. Works great.

The lids are super cheap. Like a couple of bucks for a three pack. You can find them at Walmart or in the grocery stores, usually on a clip strip in the pet food aisle. The specialty pet stores have them too, but usually a bit pricier.

I'm glad I made you laugh! I try to see the humor in situations so I don't get too mad or stressed.
He got back from two hours at the dog park and field next door and ate all of his "bad" breakfast, really dinner from the night before. Then kept following me around and getting underfoot while I washed his bowl so I gave him a new dinner which he also inhaled in seconds.
I was worried that he'd get sick from eating too much at once but apart from a burp or two he was fine. Then I took him out with me and my dog last night and he got to wait briefly in the car instead of running rampant and destroying my apartment again. It was ten minutes and in the 40s out so not too cold. He had his blanket on.
He didn't want his cold refrigerated breakfast this morning. Oh well, he's starting to learn that he eats what he gets or he doesn't eat.
He's also learning to actually sit when i tell him to and to come back when I call him, eventually.
He follows me around everywhere, but is learning to stay out of the kitchen and that chasing the cats or eating my dog's food quickly gets him banished to the bathroom and bad things happen like me yelling at him. Not that he cares but he seems to hate being banished.

He definitely likes running the show. At the dog park he runs over to everyone and jumps on them. Everyone else starts saying how cute he is and cooing and picks him up and petting him and he just loves it. He tries to follow everyone to the gate to go home with them lol. I tell him off no jumping, so he barks at me. I say quiet bad no barking lol. When I go to the gate he won't go to me unless I start to leave. Well sometimes he will, like when he's freezing lol.

Then he sees me cuddling with my dog and cats and he's not even allowed on the bed. He's probably in culture shock that I'm immune to his charms.

I can't let him on the bed my poor little cat will never leave the kitchen. If he behaved with the cat it would be fine.
I do pet and praise him for doing good things.
I feel mean typing all this but he finally has started to behave better this week so we've had more bonding moments. Can't let down my guard though. The minute I'm nice to him he pushes the limit and thinks he's in charge and goes after the cat or goes to my dog's food bowl. No, he still has to follow basic rules whether I'm nice or not.
My dog just never does things once he knows he's not supposed to. And other things he does no matter what even though he knows I don't want him to lol.
