MrSnappy Posted July 6, 2007 Report Share Posted July 6, 2007 So Red Dog is on steroids, for his autoimmune issues, and unfortunately cannot be tapered down or he can't walk. The steroids have side effects; he has a pot belly now, and has started sometimes peeing in his sleep. Which, though gross, is also kind of funny because he wakes up in the morning and gives me this look like "dude, someone pissed in this dog bed!" Okay, whatever. They also make him ravenously hungry, so we have some food issues with the other dogs popping up, but those are manageable. The latest thing was busting into the garbage can while I was out and eating whatever he could get his mouth on. He hasn't broken into a garbage can since he was a puppy! No big deal, the garbage can lives on top of the deep freeze now. Fine. So tonight I came home from dinner with a friend, after feeding them their own dinner AND giving them beef bones to chew on .... and found garbage strewn all over the apartment. Huh - must've forgotten to put the can up before I left ... except the can is still up there, lid still on. And I didn't eat the feta cheese that Red dog Fan brought over the other day, yet the empty container is on the floor. So my eyes wander over the room, since my apartment is essentially one big room, and come to rest on the open refrigerator. Yes. Red Dog has learned to open the fridge and go to town. Not ONLY did he learn to open the fridge in the few hours I was gone, he also figured out how to slide open the vegetable bin, which does not contain vegetables but rather dog meat. Specifically, two breakfasts worth of dog meat, dinner, and recreational bones. He also ate most of my strawberries and MY dinner which was thawing for tomorrow. And it looks like he tried to open a can of Pellegrino, but the pull tab thwarted his no-thumbedness. At this exact moment he is as big as two Red Dogs and is burping up a distinctly Greek smell. I am so not impressed. I mean, I am kind of impressed because he can open the fridge, but I am really.not.impressed. So besides duct tape, how do I keep the fridge shut??
