Restless dog syndrome

Although I spend the day walking, wrestling and playing with daddy, when mummy comes home from work I wake up, fully charged. After a quick cuddle she wants to sit down and chill. I, on the other hand, want her to give me her full attention. But once we head into the garden to play, I can’t decide what I want to do. Should I chase my ball? Play tug of war? Take a dip in the paddling pool? Or chew some rawhide until she gets close and then get her to chase me?

There’s too much choice. Sometimes I try to multitask by doing a bit of everything. On days like these mummy and daddy say I have ‘restless dog syndrome’. And the only cure is a double-team belly rub session!

Do you ever suffer from restless dog/cat/pig syndrome?

Ps apologies if you received my Wordless Wednesday post today. WordPress decided to send it out a day early. I’ll repost it tomorrow.

  4. Haha Misaki…SHE tells me all the time that I have RDS…but now I learned the cure from you: Double-Team Belly Rib Session. I must try that when SHE and Grandma are close by…thanks my friend!

  5. Lilly doesn’t seem to have it but Bunk for sure got it as well… Sometimes it is like he lost the plot… but it does go away if he can find something to occupy him for more than 5 min

  7. I have Restless Cat Syndrome once in a while…..but only when I’m desperate to go outside and have a munch of grass. I can be quite a pest on those occasions, otherwise I’m a perfect little gentleman (hahahahaha).

    Hugs, Sammy

  8. You are a busy girl! I get restless whenever Mom tells me to sit still. If she makes me stay in one place for too long, I start to shiver and then she takes mercy on me. Can’t she hear my toys calling me???

    Love and licks,

  9. My RDS manifests itself with me running round the garden killing plastic flower pots. Peeps finds it funny. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  13. LOL…It can be very hard to focus.

  14. Jessica says:

    Oh, boy…Taylor certainly shows symptoms of “restless dog syndrome”! And it’s always with her toys: whenever she gets a new one, she wants to play with it, then grab her trusty baseball for a game of fetch, then back to her new toy, then back to her baseball….Whew!! This is when I say “MAKE UP YOUR MIND, WOMAN!!” 😉

  21. Well my dog’s like to have there crazy hour about 3 times a day!!! Which is why they get a lot of exercise and need both physical and mental stimulation to keep them out of trouble! (I must admit, they get bored easily and this means TROUBLE).

    When Brooke is quiet, everyone should be worried…

    Lots of love,
    Jessica, Charlie Boy, Roman and Brooke xxxx

  23. The OP Pack says:

    Mom thinks Lightning might have that same problem, Misaki – he is one bundle of nonstop energy and wants to do everything at one time. We think we got a peek at your next post, but we will come back tomorrow so we can leave a comment.
