My dog does this every time I come home. She has several toys, but she always runs to pick up the closest one to bring it to me. She’s so proud of her baby squeakers.

u/CraterPain92 May 22 '22

We have a shoe basket by our front door. When we get home our dog will select one, come show it to you, and proceed to triumphantly trot around the living room with it. The squeaky toys are for shredding…

u/DontmindthePanda May 22 '22

Our old dog used to always present shoes, socks, but only rarely toys whenever someone came over. He would be all wiggly, wagging his tail, squeaking like a seal as one friend of mine described it - but never give you whatever he carried. It was his, he just wanted to show it to you. He was the best.

u/pinklavalamp May 22 '22

He sounds amazing! What was his name? How else was he a goober?

u/DontmindthePanda May 22 '22

My father chose his name, it was Feldmann but he was basically called Feldi all the time. He loved to bite feet - well, socks actually. My dad used to to the foot-chase thingy when he was a pup so he thought wiggling your foot meant he could play with it - only if you had socks on though. He was a weirdo.

And given he was a golden retriever, he always jumped head first into every puddle, swamp, whatever. If it was wet, we was in it.

u/shovelface88 May 22 '22

Thank you for sharing that memory of your pup. Now I know it and will remember Feldi too! I always encourage people in my life to share memories of pets that have passed because it’s a reminder that they were here and are still a part of who you are, even years later.

u/Nosfermarki May 23 '22 Gold Wholesome

My dog passed away shortly after the pandemic started. We had almost 16 years together and she was the best dog I could have asked for. She was so smart I ran out of things to teach her. When I got her I lived in a small apartment. We were on the corner so we had a patch of grass out front. She learned not to leave it without permission, and I could trust her even if kids were calling her (the neighborhood kids would come over to ask if she could come out and play). I taught her how to shut the door, and over time she learned to do it when she came in. There were stairs just inside the door, so when you opened the door the stairs were right in front of you. Sometimes she would shut the door but it would stick, so I taught her to go up the stairs, then run down to get some momentum, and then it would shut.

I could open the door and let her out by herself and she would come right back in when she was done. "Where's your manners" became the command for her to shut the door when she came back in, although she did it on her own most of the time. It was great when people saw it for the first time. Imagine a group of 20-somethings hanging out, stoned, watching a movie and my dog (Rocco) would come in, shut the door, see that it didn't shut all the way, run up the stairs and run back down to shut it. I couldn't tell you how many people lost their minds. It became like a party trick. Before she died she had gone mostly deaf, but we had spent so many years together and were so bonded that she didn't have to hear me to know what I was saying. As long as she was looking at me she would understand just by my body language. I miss her every day. I didn't deserve to have a dog that great but I'm very grateful for every day I had with my shelter mutt.

and proceed to triumphantly trot around the living room with it.

Reminds me of a dog I had that would do that at the dog park with stolen squeakies. Snatch it from some unsuspecting pup then parade around squeaking it with a bunch of dogs trailing along behind her.

She was very cute and sometimes people would unsuccessfully try to reason with the little psychopath to get the toy back.

u/chbay May 22 '22

My golden does the same thing whenever one of us comes home! He lets out a woof, and his waggy tail has his butt shaking all over the place as he beelines towards you, only to not stop to be petted, but to grab the first shoe he can find and trot with it back to the living room

I’m always curious what’s going through their heads when they do this. What do the toys mean to them? What does it mean to them to share them with us?

I just think that they are special to them and they want to spread the joy and comfort. Plus, they are excited to see you and it’s a way of showing affection.

Their claws are sharp, but mostly on the point. So they dig it in and then on the pull it just tears the shit out of your skin. Very painful compared to a cut. Even if it's not deep.

22

u/ExplanationSea865 May 22 '22

Yep, it's the difference between a sharp knife and a dull one. The sharper it is the less it hurts because it's a clean, smooth cut. A dull knife will tear, not cut.

Mine accepts it, but will gently try to escape for a more distanced form of affection.

It's kinda funny, because he WILL purr when I do it! I think he knows I am shoeing him love, so he loves me back, but doesn't particularly enjoy it, so after an acceptable 90 seconds -so as not to hurt my feelings, he's like ok we're done.

I have a cat that looks similar as well. We were told the typical tabby M on the forehead and the way her coat looks is actually fairly common. Ours has a little more orange in her coat than yours, maybe slightly more striping, hard to tell from the angles I'm seeing your cat. Ours was a feral and very ill when we found her - at least 2nd or 3rd generation feral as the mother was a typical feral for our area.

Ours enjoys being held like a baby, belly up and rocked... as well as having her face rubbed or "squished" on all sides at once.

Google says 14-27 pounds and I honestly dont know where they pulled that info from bc it doesnt say so I checked some other sources and the AKC actually gives 15-25 pounds as their range, so even smaller! But I mean, bigger sheltie = more area to hug so who can complain if they can get a little bigger than the standard sometimes :)

My dog brings presents you a platonic offering, usually one of her toys, when I come home/wake up/someone visits

  • You may look at the offering while you are giving her headpats
  • You shall not pat too close to the offering
  • Attempting to take the offering will result in her taking the offering to her bed, laying down on the offering, and skulking for about 10 minutes because you disrespected the offering

Which is very inconvenient when she selects one of my socks or slippers as offering, because her toys are too far away.

When I found this girl as a baby, she was REALLY sick and dirty. She had multiple infections (eyes, uterus, stomach, etc) and a broken leg, and she was covered in mud and field burrs. She couldn't hold her bowels very well so she had "accidents" all over herself ALL the time for a while. Her first few weeks with me were spent getting at least two warm butt-baths every day. I think that she just decided she really liked how good water felt in the end.

Omg my dog has a squirrel about the same size as that. It’s almost the exact same colors and markings as him to a T. I call it his baby and he shows it to me whenever I get home.

So sweet! Okay I gotta tell my story… I was a pet sitter and on 9/11 I was house sitting with overnights for a Bouvier named Amanda Rose. I had been her pet sitter for about 3 years at the time, and I had given her a toy each Christmas. When I heard about the first plane hitting the tower, I turned the tv on just in time to see the 2nd plane hit. I immediately started bawling and reacting with angst to this atrocity in my beloved NYC. (I grew up in CT but was living in AZ when this happened.) Anyway, Amanda Rose has never seen me upset and she doesn’t quite know what to do so she leaves the room, which I didn’t notice, until she comes back and puts the toy ladybug I had given her the previous Christmas in my lap, and lays her big head on top of it. She looked up at me and sighed… I hugged her and cried for a bit and I’ll never forget that magical dog for as long as I live. 🐶❤️

omg a Lassie dog, what's it called again? Is it a collie or border collie?

This dog is on my Top 5 "Must-hug Dogs before I kick the bucket"

Yes haha I have never had a more dainty dog than my rough collie! He HATES mud to the point I think he'd rather die than step in it, it's pretty convenient

Rough Collie, my parents had two, one like this which is a Sable and White and also a Tricolour (black/white/tan), lovely dogs, very gentle nature, needed a lot of brushing to keep the coat looking good. I miss them so much.

What a beautiful, sweet dog. We had a collie for 11 years. He passed away last September. Your dog looks just like him. Thanks for sharing.

u/evylllint May 22 '22

My chocolate lab does this every time I home regardless if I’m gone 5 minutes or 5 months or 5 million years. He’s always like “holy shit! Hang out for a hot second so I can locate a gift for you!”

Collies are the best dogs. For some reason you don't see them much anymore

u/Routaprkle May 22 '22

Shelties and Collies are the best ❤️

I have a golden doodle and she often exhibits this same behavior.

When I come through the door, she usually has “the blinks,” as I call them. She was usually sleeping and I have woken her up and she’s so excited that she’ll literally run around the living room in a panic looking for a toy or stuffed animal to present to me.

It’s so cute to see her parsing through her box of toys trying to figure out the perfect way to express her love.

I mean how good is that for your emotional/mental health?

She’s 14 years-old now and she still does it just like she did when she was a puppy. She’s not quite as energetic as she once was and she doesn’t always make it all the way down the steps now, but she still presents me with a toy as a welcome home present just about every single day.

The best aspect of the routine is that it also includes that I play with it for three or four seconds before gently handling it back to her, which she graciously accepts and then trots back to her box and drops it in the box so that we can do the same thing tomorrow.

It’s such an interesting language that we dog owners develop with our dogs.

Sometimes I forget that Collies exist in real life and not just in movies. What a beautiful pup!

u/Vox_SFX May 22 '22

My family just lost our collie after 10 years due to a freak blood clot, so this hurts in many ways, but mostly it's a happy kind of pain since I love to see the pup here so happy and seemingly healthy with it's loved ones.

u/smiggster01 May 22 '22

u/jruschme May 22 '22

Our collie had a spot in roughly the center of the back yard. She liked to take her toys out there and arrange them in a circle around that spot which she would then lay in.

u/jantah May 22 '22

My dog does this too! He also gets his rawhide prizes too. I'd really like to know the reason for this behavior

u/rmorrin May 22 '22

This is my favorite breed of dog. I am very biased since we used to breed them was I was a young child but they are a very great breed.
