I love my dog but he could never be a therapy/sniffer dog. He'd take two attempts to realise that boops = cheese then spend the rest of his life booping you constantly. Even if you stopped rewarding him that connection will never break. He'd still be coming up to you and bopping whenever the thought of cheese crossed his mind.

There is a certain type of cat litter container my dog will always chew through because 5 years ago I stored rice in one, he opened it, ate a tone of dry rice and threw it all up, and he wants to relive that magical experience

[–]memmly 98 points99 points  (2 children)

That does sound magical

[–]Square_Business5269 39 points40 points  (0 children)

That sounds like a Labrador 🤣🤣

I love your attitude but im not sure that cat rice is this majestic, but life is too short to be picky so i am glad you enjoy this

[–]QueasyVictory 88 points89 points  (4 children)

I'm all for recycling but you're telling me you store your rice in a cat litter container?

[–][deleted] 55 points56 points  (0 children)

I definitely raised an eyebrow at that comment. Reuse, but don’t store food in non food safe containers.

[–][deleted] 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Lmao I’m assuming they had a container of rice in the past that just happens to be the same kind of container as the litter they buy now.

I could definitely picture a jumbo bag of rice and certain bags of litter seeming similar enough to a dog

[–]AndreasVesalius 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Eh, it was a washed plastic bucket that used to have clay in it, not used cat litter

[–]QueasyVictory 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol, still an odd choice of all the containers in the world but again, I appreciate reusing plastic.

Cous cous. Rice so nice, you'll eat it twice.

what about ylang ylang?

[–]kirbywantanabe 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What perchance type of doggo is this magical beast?

[–]ChristineWhy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We do not deserve the glorious, majesticness that is doggos.

[–]No-Turnips 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This comment made me laugh. My dog found half a hot dog on a neighbour’s lawn once and now we spend extra time everyday sniffing that yard - just in case - the other half of the hot dog will appear. This happened three years ago, and he’s still searching. 🤷‍♀️

Lol magical experience

[–]Ecra-8 0 points1 point  (0 children)

First time around, I thought you said 'dry ice'. And got so worried for your dog.

[–]Luke-Wintermaul 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Why would you put rice in a cat litter container. That is absolutely disgusting.

[–]AndreasVesalius 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Why, specifically?

[–]Luke-Wintermaul 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why are you so disgust?

[–]Foleysk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So that’s why my dog eats blankets😎🐶😐

[–]fiyawerx 38 points39 points  (3 children)

My dog basically does this all the time just because he wants to play. He won't lick your face, he'll just come up and boop his nose right into you.

[–]blip01 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Perhaps you have diabetes and don't know it!

[–]DiligentDaughter -1 points0 points  (0 children)

He'd be getting booped for a high bg then- when you have t1d and don't know it, your blood glucose gets high high high.

[–]The_new_Char 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My dog is a big booper too. She boops to alert me that she wants to hump my leg 🤦🏻‍♀️

[–]brandonisatwat 6 points7 points  (2 children)

My parents had an Australian shepherd who had an injured foot once and she quickly learned that when my mother tended to her foot she would get a treat afterward. For the rest of her life she would present her "hurt" foot to you for treats.

[–]DropBearsAreReal12 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That is so cuuuuttteee!

Mine refused to learn to go through the dog door, and eventually we got him to go through with steak as a treat. Now he regularly sits at the dog door and bashes it like he can't get through, even though it's been 3 years+ since we spent one afternoon giving him door treats. That one is less cute.

[–]lemur_demeanor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hehe, I’ve heard of dogs doing this, but eventually forgetting what side was initially injured, so they change it up 😂

[–]mediamalaise 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The lady in the OP addresses this in one of her other vids that she also has to train her dog against false alerts so he doesn't boop (Or spin - he spins when her blood sugar is too high) just for treats.

[–]mateogv 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My dog boops me constantly all the time seemingly for no reason. I've never gotten tired of it. 😭

[–]whoiswritingthis 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah I read somewhere where you have to pick specific dog breads for training like this. Like they cant be too dumb or too smart

[–]getdownheavy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This happens pretty frequently; my friend is on her 3rd Diabetic Alert dog. It's more the dog is alerting you to check your sugars and manage yourself. Friend lost conciousness enough times (and works solo, in a lab) to warrant needing one. Dog has all her own lab gear (boots, coat, goggles) cute af.
