An Online Intervention!

We have a big problem here at the Rumpydog household.

Last night he tipped over the trash again, to get at ONE empty can.

Dude, you got a problem!

Who? Me? I can quit anytime I want to- I just don't want to.

Anybody got some advice for helping Rumpy overcome his addiction?

  1. First you have to admit you have a problem and that your life has become unmanageable. You must get Rumpy to the 12-Step rooms so he can at least see there is a better way and that recovery is possible and must get a sponsor.

  2. When I was taking care of my neighbors dog and cat I noticed Petie, the dog ate whatever MaMa didn’t finish. When I caught him, he looked at me as if saying, “I’m allowed!”

    BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!

  3. With due respect to the Cat community…i think you got it all wrong…Rumpy is a sweet sweet Dog and the only reason he is even looking or tasting Cat food is to show solidarity with the cats inthe house plus as he says he can quit any time he wants But Ladies and Gentlemen and Cats ..RUMPY IS NO QUITTER .

  4. Guess it is better to eat the Cat stuffs… BEFORE it goes into “THE PAN”. RIGHT?

  5. I understand you, Rumpy! I love fish and wet cat food smells really yum! 🙂
    Besides, I love their bonito stick….*drools* so what’s wrong with us having cat food? *pretending innocent face*

  6. Dear Rumpy,
    I’m sure we can find a nice group you can join that will help you curb your addictions. I mean I’m sure the cats are addicted to weirder things.

  7. You have taken the biggest step Rumpy you have bought your problem out in the open. Personally as long as the cat aren’t going hungry I can’t see that it is such a be problem. Am more concerned about you and possible weight gain? Can you still fit in your collar or has hit had to be loosened a notch. Don’ despair we all love you xxx’s

  8. LOL! If I could stop Rumpy from being addicted to cat food, I would have stopped Pierson from being addicted to Maya’s poop a long time ago. Just when I think the issue is solved, he comes inside with poop breath!!!

  9. Oh Rumpy. You be careful with that addiction, addiction makes pups do some crazy things. And the cats might have to take their intervention to another level!

  10. I don’t think you have a problem at all, Rumpy! There’s nothing wrong with eating a little cat food now and then – it’s much tastier than dog food.

  11. Dude, you let those cats “help” with your “addiction” and you’re whupped. Be strong! You da man!

  12. Dogs love cat food because of the high protein content (higher than dog food) but it is bad for them. I suggest rinsing out the can of cat food before putting in the trash.

  13. You are not alone, Rumpy. Our dog, Jet, much prefers to eat his five cat brothers’ food over his own! I’ve tried to break his habit but so far nothing has worked! Just a small warning, though, I do think Jet has started to act more like a cat since he’s been eating cat food! Food for thought Rumpster! Love your blog B T W!!! Dani xxx

  14. Wow! That happens here too! Me has steps so me can gets to my food easily and my hairy slobbery sister Cinnamon has tried to climb them to eats our foods!
