Funny poodle taps on fridge door when hungry

Published December 21, 2018 74 Plays

Rumble / Dogs & PuppiesDo you ever wake up in the middle of the night? It's that gnawing feeling in your stomach that keeps you from restful sleep. Some people have different remedies for getting back to sleep. A warm cup of milk with honey, some melatonin pills or a simple midnight snack. This cute poodle named Dice often wakes up in the middle of the night with a hankering for his favorite dog biscuits. He will fuss and whine till he gets his way. He is very insistent and goes as far as tapping on the fridge door where he knows his snacks are kept. He takes his little white paws and taps on the side of the fridge door until you get the message. It's pretty darn cute so how can you possibly refuse him?

Dice is a Poodle-Maltese mix who was born in North Hollywood in 2006. He is quirky and smart and always full of surprises. He is a senior dog so he is very set in his ways. He has a set routine that he adheres to religiously. He loves to go on his daily walks with his live-in girlfriend Dixie the Chihuahua and they make quite the adorable pair. They can often be seen together going for car rides which they thoroughly enjoy. They do everything together and if you see Dice, Dixie is never far away. She is his shadow and follows him literally everywhere.

It is often said that dogs prefer animals of their own breed but you would never know it with these two. Even though the Chihuahua only joined the family this past March, she acts like she has been with Dice forever. She is like a support animal to Dice. She comforts him when he is stressed and watches out for him all the time. Its very sweet to see. They are similar in size so they are basically a perfect match.

Both Chihuahuas and Poodles become very bonded to their owners and sometimes they fuss over who gets to sit own their owners lap. They can become slightly jealous at times so it's very important to show equal attention to both. This can be said of most pets. They have the mentality of a 4 or 5 year old child so you have to deal with them in that manner. Hopefully, this senior couple will be able to enjoy their companionship for many years to come.

Do you own a small dog that has funny quirks or habits? All animals are different but one thing is for sure. They have set routines and behaviors that they will stick to for most of their lives. Occasionally those behaviors can become an annoyance but not in this dog's case. His owner will always give him his midnight snack whenever he asks for it. It makes him happy and best of all, it allows him to get back to sleep.
