Get Off My Feet!!
« on: March 14, 2006, 03:39:58 pm »
OK, so our girl saint Darcy is always stepping on our feet!  At 130 pounds, it is not fun!!  Has anyone else had this problem?  If so, how did you train them out of it?  Our other male saint used to do it when he was young, but he finally got the picture after a few corrections.
 
Thanks!

If you do find a cure, let me know. My clumsy trio ALWAYS manage to trample my toes!

All I can say is wear shoes and watch you feet.  I get tons of bruises and scratches from my two monsters stomping and pushing off my feet.
Thanks,

If you do find a way patent it and you could make a fortune.  My feet are always scratched and bruised...betw een a clumsy newf, spastic aussie, and the two horses I'm lucky I still have feet.

Steel-toed boots are all the rage this year for big paw lovers!!   Flip-flops are NOT!!! ::) ::) ::)

Cowboy is very aware of his feet so we don't have to worry about him, but Chester is another story.  AGHHH!

Bear has clawed me many times on accident with his toe nails and has actually put my feet to sleep by refusing to move after sitting on them. I guess since I love his warm body, booty, feet to keep me warm in the winter time I kinda owe him   when he does it by accident.  ;)

Zoey steps on my feet ALL the time - she just has no idea where her feet are. It hurts! She is so heavy, I swear she's going to break my foot one of these days

I get stepped on a lot.  Mostly it's Grace doing it, but she learns not to step on me by getting stepped on right back...acciden tally of course.
