The things dogs do


Kitsap

Recommended Posts

The New Roommate and Life's Good threads reminded me of some odd things my dogs have done in the past.

 

My wifes dog did not like snow. One day we let her out to do her business and she walked on her two front legs to a bare grassy spot. When done she walked back to the house again only using her two front legs. My dog once ate an unused tampon. I had to stand on the end of string as he slowly inched himself across the yard.

My large dog, a Border Collie Shepard, loves water and swims poetically graceful.

 

My smaller dog, a Schiferkee, will only go in to just before the water touches her belly, if she does go chase a stick and ends up having to swim for it, her hind end sinks down and she pounds the surface of the water with her front legs, sort of like a brick trying to float!

 

Also they are extremely jeolous of each other, if we are talking to only one of them and more importantly petting that one the other will get in the way and seek attention.

 

Nice visual on the tampon - too funny

Every night or early morning as Im getting ready for bed, my dog jumps in my bed and puts his big head on the pillows. Then Its to much of a struggle to get him out because he is big. So I just jump in bed and after about 20 minutes he gets up and goes to his bed.

I bought him 2 temprapedic pillows and a small 6X4 futon.

He seems happy now.

Gracie, a Westie who and owned my parents, would wake me with a nose-to-nose state when she thought it was time to go out.

 

George, another Westie - can't have a George w/o a Gracie, would use his nose to open a door wider so he could get outside. Gracie, would judge the opening, and if it wasn't large enough she would bark until you opened it.

 

My mom would feed both dogs while she cooked, to the point that they expected it. Gracie would yap until she got something to ear - even lettuce, onions, mushroomr :eek:

 

Lastly, people would ask me how I told them apart - my reply was - "Well, George has a penius!

Sometimes we will enjoy lunch or dinner in the den while watching TV...my 80lb bulldog Ruthie will "assume the position" which is forcing that big lug of a body under the short coffee table in "hopes" of catching some of our losses....After eating I rap my fingernails on the coffee table which is Ruthie's cue that dinner is finished and it is so funny to watch that 80 lb. dog shoot out from under that short table like she was shot out of a cannon...Looking for leftovers....

Sidd only has one eye-and he doesn't see really well out of it. So, the squirrels have free run of our yard. He doesn't even notice when they come up to the house, push the screen to the porch open and come in to eat his food.

 

When he runs around the yard, they run up the trees and throw stuff at them. He peers around as far as he can (about 2-3 yards out, as near as we can tell) and then goes on, assuming that the leaves and stuff that hit him are junk from heaven.

 

Of course, for as dim and senile as he may be, he is about 2 brain cells smarter than one of our next-door dogs, Riley. Riley is a yappy doxie. Riley runs along the fence, barking like crazy, whenever Sidd is out. Sidd will run up to the fence and stand there, making Riley just go nuts. Riley's mom will finally yell at him to get in the house and hush. Riley then reluctantly starts trotting to his front door, at which point Sidd will finally give out one or two barks. Riley then comes running back to the fence, yapping his fool head off, and gets yelled at again. I swear Sidd likes to hear Riley get yelled at. You can just see the gleam in his beady little eye.

Oh man, better not get me started on this.

 

The tiniest Miniature Schnauzer we've ever had could steal a basketball off the dribble better than any player I ever coached. She'd pounce and bat the ball away by the second bounce. I think only Tim Hardaway or Allen Iverson would have gotten past her.

Another Nap picture. This was our old bulldog who the kids named "Sissy". To this dog, there was nothing better than our kids. We miss her so much sometimes...

Many years ago I when arrived home from work and opened the front door, my dog Dusty was in the living room wagging his tail very happy to see me. Unfortunately, he was supposed to be outdoors during the day. Nothing was disturbed in the house and we never did determine why he wanted in so desperately.

Did you check the liquor cabinet? That is one very intent animal.
