No matter where he is in the house, asleep or awake, the minute I sit on the pot, he comes right to the bathroom door, nudges it open and gets right up in my junk just to observe or whatever.
Flames and Freaks, Editor. NOW.
My cat does the same damned thing. He also loves to take a dump while I'm in the tub-his litter box is in the bathroom close by. If I want to soak, to get rid of the stink, I have to get out, clean out the litter box and get back in.
dogs communicate through smell, like many mammals. You sitting and taking a crap to him is like us standing up and yelling, "HEY, GUYS! LOOK AT THIS!!!"
Why not just close and lock the door? Unless you like your dog's cold nose on your balls.
Your dog's been trained to alert its owner during a methane gas leak.
