Need help with the roommate's dog.

    OK, here's the deal. Moved in with my roommate April 1. It's an awesome setup, because she's rarely home when I am, and when she is, it's just her and her boyfriend eating dinner or watching a game. And I get my own bathroom. Plenty of privacy.

    The problem is her dog. It's a labrapoodle. Every time I walk into the house, walk out of my room (whether I've kept the door open or closed), etc., when the dog is here, it goes nuts. I have tried playing with it, feeding it, calling it over, opening my door for it to come in (it won't) ... basically nothing works. The only way the dog shuts up is if they hold it by the collar close to one of them.

    A couple times, she has left me alone with the dog -- usually she takes the dog to her mom's house when she's working, at the boyfriend's place, etc. -- including today. Now the dog isn't yelping, but she is cowering in the corner, as if I'm conspiring to have her dragged off to the local pound. I've tried petting her, playing with her, and it still isn't working.

    I love living here, but having a dog be a tool, even if it's only three or four times each week, is annoying. And I'm a dog guy.

    Try taking some Skippy Crunchy and applying it down there Gold Bond-style.

    May I recommend some "Homeward Bound"? No dog could possibly turn down that flick.

    SportsJournalists.com never disappoints me. Now, someone help me find some answers.
  9. Be happy it sits in the corner and ignores you. I once had a girlfriend who's dog would try sniffing my butt the gf and I were going at it ... kinda spoils the moment.
