This Golden Retriever has the Funniest Habit Ever
All dogs have their own funny ways to do things that make us love them even more. Some put their paws on their owners to get attention, and others only sleep with a blanket. But this Golden Retriever has a peculiar habit no other dog has. You'll be surprised to discover what he does to go out to pee and why. Want to know more about this odd but adorable dog? Keep reading!
The Goofiest Dogs
We all know that Golden Retrievers are the goofiest breed of all. They are very smart, but they do everything in a very different way, often funny. And it's very hard to convince them to do otherwise. That was the case of the young dog of a Tumblr member. He developed a peculiar habit...
Training the Dog
Like many dogs, this Golden was trained to ask to go outside when he needs to pee. The couple wanted the little dog to go to the door and simply sit in front of it. That way, they would know that it was time to let him outside. However, the dog decided to do it, but with a little twist.
Some dogs just go to the door and put a paw in the owner's lap or bark non-stop for attention until de owner comes, but this dog developed a different system. The puppy decided the best way for him to let its owner know was to lick the door. What did the owners think of his weird choice of habit?
Well, they were happy enough. The dog was able to learn something, and they just accept his system. According to them, if the dog wanted to pee, he would lick the door. If he was only in front of it, no licking involved, he was just chilling. Everything worked very well until something happened.
The family decided it was time to move. They thought the dog would do the same thing once they moved into the new house since he already knew the system for years. Lick the door, go outside. But this house was very confusing to him. What was wrong?
The Invisible Front Door
The problem was that the dog didn't get used so quickly to the new home. He wasn't able to recognize the entry door, even though there was only one in the entire house. The Golden Retriever went through the entry multiple times, but nothing helped him recognize it. So he decided to develop a new system...
The New System
His new system to get out was even worst than the first one. According to the owners, "when he needs to go out, he stands in front of any door and starts licking it!". Now, It doesn't matter which door it is. He just licks it in the hope his owners will understand. And everything got even more confusing.
Liking All the Doors
Now, he licks the first door he finds. It doesn't matter how far or how different the door is from an entry door. The adorable golden just thinks it a magic door that will take him directly to the world of the dog toilets. It got so bad he even started licking wardrobe, bathroom, and even cabinet doors. His owners began trying to figure out what was wrong with him.
The owners didn't know if he was too smart or just the opposite of it. Because he clearly understood very well the concept of doors, since he was able to recognize and lick, every kind of them. But he wasn't able to identify the most important of them: the entry door. They started to wonder...
"I don't know if he thinks my closet or the kitchen cabinets lead to outside, or if he's just hoping to find doggy Narnia, or if he's just hopelessly given up on ever being able to find the door by himself and is just doing the best he can," said the Tumblr user. But can they stop him?
He Can't Be Stopped
Apparently, the funny Golden Retriever can't be stopped. One way or the other, every time he needs to pee, the dog starts licking a random door. It doesn't matter where he is or the material of the door. Glass, wooden, new, old, he will just lick whatever he finds first. So it was time for the owners to develop a system.
Searching for the Licker
Every time the dog disappears for a while, the owners start to look for him in every room in the house until they find him. And he will probably be with his tongue pressed up against a random door because he thinks that is the only way outside. And it's worse if they don't look for him.
Beware the Mess
If the family doesn't find the dog only a few moments after he licks possibly any door in the home, the pet thinks that it is okay to pretend he is outside and just make a huge mess inside. After all, he did request a way out by licking a door, right? And his owner doesn't eve get mad anymore!
Perfect Silly Dog
"He is the dumbest dog I have ever seen in my life, and yet I could not love him more. It is absolutely perfect." says one of the family members on the Tumblr post. But most people don't really agree the dog is not smart. Some people even think he found a "magic" way to go outside.
When this post got to Imgur, some users even think that the dog was a secret genius because he realized he could lick every door, not only the entry. So maybe the owners are the silly ones since they always let him go outside. Other users tried to find a way to solve the problem.
"Obviously, you need to go back, get the old door, and install it in the new house," said one of the Imgur users in an attempt to help to stop this compulsive licker. Maybe he should've said that before the dog licked every possible door in the house...
Even being possibly the silliest dog ever, this animal is undeniably adorable and probably one of the funniest of all Golden Retrievers. Do you know any dog that does things as hilarious as this? Or someone with a dog with an equally bizarre habit? Share this article with them!
