For the last week or two Gracie has this new eating thing. I feed her in the morning and she eats it right away for the most part. Some times it takes her 30 minutes or so to get her lazy butt off the couch. But at night when I am at work hubby feeds her. As soon as he gives her, her food she goes right to the couch and lays down. But when I walk in the door after work, I let her out to go potty. But as soon as she comes in she heads right for the food dish. She wont eat unless I am home. Is this weird or is it just me thinking this is odd? Also is there any reason why she is doing this? Besides the obviouse she loves her mommy more than her daddy. :D ;)

She gets fed within 15 minutes after she gets in at a certain time. Then she goes back out a little later before hubby heads to bed. Maybe she needs a quick nap before eating? I don't really know what time hubby feeds her when I am not here. When I am home one night during the week I feed her and she digs right in. Maybe she is just more relaxed with me than him. I just realized this all started after I really started working more and more on training her. Maybe she is seeing me as her security blanket kind of thing?

It's funny how pets develop strange habits. Our Pom would also pick the food out of his bowl piece by piece. He'd pick up a piece, carry it to the middle of the room, lay down and eat it, then repeat until he finished it all. We tried putting him up on a counter to eat when he was a puppy but he'd just sit there wanting to get down. Since we got him until the day he passed, he never once ate out of the actual bowl.
Gracie does that to. Except she takes a mouth full of food and goes to the livingroom sits down, eats then gets right back up to do it again. Lol

My husband does feed her, she will eat if we are both home with out a problem. I figured she would view him as the alpha, he is a lot more strict on things than I am. But she's cute she only wants...... You know what I mean? I know that she will not let her self go hungry. Sooner or later she will eat it. I think. Maybe I should try to see if she iwll eat if I don't come home by a certain time. She is a strange dog, I swear.
