Sheldon too knows when he has done something that is sure to get him a scolding he gets this disappointed in himself look like hanging his head and looking up at me like Mommy I've been naughty let me show you and he takes me to whatever he has torn up or scattered. I just give him muzzies and pick up the mess because he does this so very rarely that its usually stress related. I think its one of the things I love most about this breed. The love they show to us. Y'all are right all they want to do is please us and love us and be with us. For Sheldon a time out is plenty to make him get the idea.
