I can relate. I don’t have a dog, but a needy cat instead. She infuriates me when she licks herself (which is a lot of the time), and I swear sometimes she will follow me into a room and lick herself on purpose even though I have moved away from her to get away from the noise and sight of it.
I also hate the noise she makes when she licks her lips after she eats, because again, she seems to come and find me and then do it right in front of me. I get so annoyed with her, I clap my hands etc but then I feel bad because she obviously doesn’t like it and doesn’t understand why I am angry with her.
It is a really frustrating situation, because the animal is just being friendly and normal, but they are driving us nuts! This leads to anger which leads to guilt- there is no way out. If I try to shut the door to the room I am in, she will meow and scratch the door. I don’t want to get rid of her, but I wish she would just leave me alone sometimes! The anger/guilt cycle is just plain stupid. Misophonia is such a stupid and pointless illness to have.
