DL Pet Owners: What is the most embarrassing thing your pet has done?

The worst would be my dog, unbeknownst to me, one night deciding, for some crazy reason to pull the living room drapes EXTRA wide open to sit and peek out the window while I was washing dishes completely bare-assed in nothing but my nightshirt. To this day, realizing that an undisclosed number of strangers got a "free show" for God-knows how long because he just had to see what the hell was going on outside at that very moment is absolutely [italic]mortifying[/italic].

And the only thing that has actually really embarrassed me is that my big guy, who you know has severe issues and is half siberian husky, SCREAMS when he sees any other dog. And he doesn't stop until a few minutes after the dog is out of sight. You genuinely worry that he's being stuck with lit cigarettes or something. And it's so loud that no one can hear me if try to explain. SCREAMS.

My dad took our dog to obedience school, but was unavailable for “graduation” night, and asked me to take him. The dog never particularly liked me, and after I had taken him through the whole routine and was talking to the judge in center circle, the dog raised his leg and pissed on me in front of about 30 other owners, all of whom were laughing uproariously.

My Bull Mastiff loved everyone. I would walk him to get a to-go pizza at California Pizza Kitchen. One time, a little two-year-old boy and his parents passed by on their way out and asked if the little boy could pet him. The kid started petting him. My dog then laid on the ground on his back and spread-eagled thinking he was going to get belly rubs.

The kid looked mortified and yelled, "the babies are going to come out now!"

I lost it, and the parents were reassuring him that no babies were coming out.

My golden ran away from home and teamed up with another stray or runaway in the neighbor.

They apparently created quite a reign of terror on the small island resort community where I lived, including going swimming in the indoor pool of an upscale hotel and generally creating havoc when the hotel management tried to remove them.

He was eventually taken in my a family who owned a very-expensive gated home on the north end of the island, who recognized him on the posters and called me. When I went to pick him up, he pretended he didn't know me, and I practically had to carry him to the car. The family who had taken him in, looked at me very skeptically, as if they suspected he was really not my dog.

Mine isn't so bad. I was a first time dog owner at 55 with a -- wait for it -- Border Collie. My pup has 1/8th Rhodesian Ridgeback heritage and doesn't have BC neuroticism or oddities -- he doesn't chase random turning wheels or nip at kids, and I fortunately have a huge yard in a dog-friendly community so he has territory to guard and loves friendly walks. If I let him, he'll wear himself out

Except, he was such a fraidy cat when young. He regularly hid during our seven week puppy training class. He had to be enticed out of an alcove where folding chairs were stored, if he wasn't trying to run out the door. He's big and towered over the Labradoodles and Golden doodles, but was submissive to a tiny Javanese and a Dauchshaund. But sweet beyond belief.

I took it a bit personally, thinking I was probably inadequate and felt inferior as a dog owner. But, he's grown into his own -- still back-flopping at his vet visits -- but totally running the property.

When I was a kid we only had nice dogs who didn't bite or anything. Small to medium sized.

My mom adopted a used dog when I was in my 20's. Cute little (small to medium, again) hairy thing. I lived with them for a while, and the dog liked me. Sometimes I'd take her for walks. I didn't know she bit. One time she snapped at (or bit?) some teen boys walking home from school. I guess they were too masculine to say anything. Another time we were at a local flea market and she did the same thing to a kid. Amazingly, the dad didn't say he was going to sue or anything. He yelled at the kid for trying to pet a strange dog. I stopped taking the dog places, because I was done pushing my luck.

The third week he turned his back to the class and watched traffic go by for two hours. The next week was supposed to be the class picnic, but the day before I received an envelope in the mail with a diploma and a letter saying 'here's a diploma congratulations you don't need to back'.

We were set to travel, and planned to board our cats at our veterinary clinic. Mistakenly thought they’d be happier in a larger pod, together. They weren’t. They were freaked out, and fighting each other, viciously. The vet called, said we had to come get them, because they couldn’t remain together in the pod, there were no other available pods, and most shamefully, THEY WERE UPSETTING THE OTHER CATS.

We now have a sitter on speed-text, because our cats don’t know how to act.

We found one of our "fixed" male cats humping a stuffed animal that belonged to my kids. Repeatedly. The stuffed toy is a black cat that is basically the size of a real cat. It was too pervy, so we hid the toy. Eventually the kids found it or we felt guilty and gave it back, and I did tell them that Ninja had assaulted it. Not sure where the toy is now.

It happened to me, R37. I can laugh about it 25 years later because everything turned out okay, but it could have been disaster.

While I was taking a shower, my dog pushed the bathroom door open & plucked a used tampon (wrapped in toilet paper) out of the wastebasket. I discovered this as I exited the bathroom. He was laying in the middle of the living room, and it almost looked like he was eating a tamale or something? He'd torn & peeled back the toilet paper (holding it down with both paws) and was happily chewing on the "treat" inside. 🤢

I yelled "Noooooooo!" and shot into the living room. He was a great dog, but he could be little food/treat aggressive...and he was really diggin' that thing! He snarled & snapped at me as I reached down, and then, WHOOSH!! It was gone. He had inhaled it, swallowed it whole!

I stood there stunned for a few seconds, trying to wrap my mind around what had just happened. So gross....and OH SHIT!! I threw on some clothes & raced off to the vet, where they induced vomiting, and he was fine. I was really embarrassed, on top of being freaked-out. (I had visions of surgery on the way there). My vet said she gets a few tampon-eaters every year, so no reason to be embarrassed -- but get a wastebasket with a lid!

This would be embarrassing only if someone saw it, but it does violate some cat-human boundaries:

We adopted two kittens, brothers, years ago. After they became acclimated, they felt comfortable wandering into the bathroom whenever my husband or I were in there. They were fascinated by us peeing… we were always afraid they might bat at the stream. But if we were sitting on the toilet they would make themselves at home in our pants that were down around our ankles. They would actually race to be the first one to sit in our pants.

Years later, the only interest one of them still has is making sure the toilet is flushed. He will walk into the bathroom, quite matter-of-factly, and look into the bowl.

On the flight home from Thanksgiving, my dog had explosive diarehea in the under seat carrier. I rushed her to the bathroom to get her and the bag cleaned up and I came out only when the FA banged on the door. I strapped myself in just as the plane was landing.

This was when the soft sided pet carriers were new and recently accepted on the airplane and weren't easily recognizable as pet carriers. The entire plane smelled like shit but everyone was glaring at the infant in the row in front of me. The parents were looking at each other confused, while smelling the baby. It's funny now.

I called my mother to tell her what happened and she said "I was worried about that when I saw how much turkey she ate". I'm a vegetarian this was the first time my dog ate real meat, ham bacon turkey and of course couldn't get enough of it. Thanks for telling me NOW mom.

My one dog used to scare herself any time she farted. She would take off running in terror. We had some strange mushrooms growing in our backyard and apparently she got into them and ate a few. They seemingly upset her stomach because out of nowhere she started zipping from room to room with explosive diarrhea spraying out of her ass. We had to chase her around the house for several minutes to get her to calm down and stop - it was a total mess.

My other dog, a terrier mix, was with me when I was at the McDonald's drive thru one time, and she started barking up a storm at the top of her lungs right into the speaker as I was trying to order. The employee ended up walking outside into the drive thru lane with her head set on and gave me a dirty look, then walked back inside. I had to pull over and go inside to place my order at the counter.

This is still embarrassing even though it’s been many years since it last happened. I was single and every time I was horny and rubbed one out, my cat (RIP) would appear from wherever he was lounging in the house and interrupt me if I forgot to close the door to my bedroom. He would sit there and try to watch, as if he were a voyeur.

Of course I would stop because I felt totally awkward about continuing. I had no problem getting dressed or exiting the shower with him nearby, but this seemed weird. I assumed a neutered cat would have less curiosity about this sort of thing.

No, R83. The only time my cat comes into my small bathroom when I'm in it is when I'm in the tub. He frequently meows and meows like he wants me to get out. Then he goes to the kitchen and starts opening the lower cabinets where there's nothing edible. This is the ONLY "bad" thing he does in my apt (when I'm home).

R85/R86: He was a very affectionate soul. I've raised 3 cats and he was the best. Plus, he never hissed or growled at me, never tried to scratch me. I miss him terribly. I always gave him lots of attention. He loved being held and coddled. He liked to lie on my lap when I was eating a meal. He took naps on my chest. He slept nestled against me every night. Luckily, I don't toss and turn while I sleep.

When he wanted to be alone, which wasn't infrequent, he would go off to another room and chill. He was fine by himself; he wasn't clingy.

In other words, there were plenty of times I was alone because he didn't need to be around me constantly. If I started jacking off (no matter how quietly), he would appear within minutes. Nothing else I did by myself would generate this immediate interest and he was the only cat who behaved like this. So, I had to close the door if I wanted to finish. It all seems silly now, but I thought it was strange at the time.

Sprayed diarrhea all over the place. One of my dogs had a weird quirk where she would startle herself whenever she got a bit gassy and farted. She would take off running. This one particular day, she must have got into something in our back yard that upset her stomach. I think it was these weird mushrooms that were growing at the edge of our yard. She started bolting from room to room spraying diarrhea everywhere, from the living room to the kitchen to the family room, dining room, everywhere. My mom and I had to chase her around the house and tackle her down to get her to calm down.
