Not a real one, my dog is a dalmation who looks like a baby cow because hes so massive!
Anyway, I need a way to entertain my cow, he's misbehaving. Whenever my parents go away he destroys the house, barks, cries, throws up (then eats it again!) Runs around like a headless chicken, and is currently chewing up my slippers! Ways to entertain a cow?

The best way to make him stop from doing this things is throw something at him when he does not see you. A dog soon will think whenever he barks or shew on things, he get punished but does not know where it comes from.
He misses your parents so he is asking for attention. When you punish him when he sees it, he somehow get his attention he's asking for. A dog does not mind if he gets negative attention, just as long as he gets what he wants.
So you must punish him when he does not see you. Try to throw something from behind a door or a wall.
after he is quite, you go to him and give him a treat. So that way he associates being quite with something pleasant.
This may not work from day one. You must try to hold on. It will work soon, you'll see.

:lol:
a good thing to throw is an empty shampoo bottle or something simular.
Of course you need to practice a bit so you can hit him for sure.
So, Kerri, let us know how things went.

Avoiding the problem is not the solution. If you or your parents don't deal with this, this will continue for the rest of your dogs life.
Do you have a bench inside the house?
Put him in there everytime your parents are away and give him something he can play with.
If he starts to bark in there, it is easy to throw something at the bench. It will make a terrible noise as well.
You really should deal with the problem.
