Patch will use his muzzle and push down on his food and then try to scoop water on to his food as well... He does this alot.. It gets very irritating because he makes a huge mess if we do not stop him.
Wow..nope thats a new one for me..maybe he's wanting softer food..and already figured out how to get it (SMART dog!!)...then agin....maybe he's lazy butt like Ashley, and wants his food and water all at once to get done more quickly so he can play (ie: get into trouble..lol )
it could be that he wants softer food.... I would suggest getting a plastic tray from petco or wherever anc place it under the food/water dish and that way it makes a mess in the tray and not over the floor.
Gaby will sometimes take a mouthfull of food from her bowl and drop it all over the floor and then start playing and throwing individual pieces in the air and pouncing on them :roll: ...I just try and ignor her when she does this, and then she gets board and clean it all up, and finishes what's left in her bowl.
new one for me too. Tyson gets organic ground beef (browned to perfection in a sauce pan with a little water) with his organic kibble. so his food is already a little moist. spoiled huh? oh yeah, bottled spring water to wash it down with.
WOW YOUR TYSON EATS BETTER THAN I DO!! HAHA! HOW SPOILED OUR BABIES ARE! REMINDS ME OF OUR 1ST BOXER ACTUALLY PULLED OFF THE STOVE A HUGE PAN OF 5LBS OF REGULAR GROUND BEEF OFF THE STOVE WHILE IT WAS COOKING!! I WAS UPSET AT THE TIME CAUSE I NEVER FIGURED A DOG TO TIP THE PAN OFF THE STOVE.
Sam does the same exact thing but not all the time - you are right, it is irritating because kibble spills out over the bowl and it is a mess. Then Lucy is jolly on the spot, trying to get every last dropped kibble. See, just one more reason to get another one, then you don't have to clean up! :lol:
Lola makes a huge mess when she eats. Gets on the floor and the wall! :roll: I went out and bought a boot tray (I think someone on here suggested it) works wonders! Now all I have to do is clean the tray......and the wall occasionally!
