    When I type too fast, and Chloe thinks I'm getting in HER way, she nips at my fingers....and I threaten, but never follow through. I think she has my number.

    The only solution that works for is one of those industrial looking trash bins with the push-in door and we have it in a corner so that it can't be tipped over.

    Ours was in a corner too - yes, it got tipped over. He's just very intuitive. He does it even if there is no trash in there - we left it unlocked one day with a fresh new bag and yep, he had to get into it just to prove he could.

    I'll have to get a picture of the lock. It's pretty cool how Mike attached it and how it works. It's a pain to unlock and lock it all the time but not as much as cleaning up trash all over the house.

    This is how mine is, too. My chow happy lab just knows it's good to hang out in the kitchen. He sits under the table and if anyone drops anything, he's on it! He's very quick.

    That's state law isn't it? Anything that falls on the floor is legally the dog's.

    So true and somehow the dogs are keenly aware of this law. Everytime I set foot in the kitchen, even if it's just to wipe down the counters, I have three helpers who are more than willing to keep the floors clean. It's funny sometimes when they all go after something that's been dropped and I say "For the love of Pete, it's just a piece of paper!"

    Too funny! Even my cat comes in to assist in case the dog needs any help.

    I call our dogs "the Hoovers" because they vaccum up anything that hits the floor. What's really funny is when it's a piece of lettuce and one will get it because they can't have the other 2 getting it first and then they run off with it and then spit it out because it's lettuce. The other two will then come sniff it and leave it. And I have to go pick it up.

    All I have to do is say "oh oh" and the dog will materialize from wherever she is in the house. I have done it without thinking sometimes (when no food is dropped) and have a very sad dog looking at me like I tricked her
