Thankfully I don't have to stand by mine. :) The qh keeps her eye on me constantly to see if I'm around (I usually pick poop in shed and around the barn). If she can see me she waits. However if I'm behind the shed (and she thinks I'm not there anymore) she'll try to push the paint away (not surprising though). Lol!
