    What's the funniest habit or personality trait that your dog has?

      He is quite cute when he's out on the chaise lounge by the pool.
      He sits in the sun and observes the back yard, keeping a close watch for the squirrels that run along the back fence or scampering in the trees.. sometimes I'll look out and notice he is keeping a watchful eye on the door.

    Boo is currently experimenting with cause and effect. She's discovered that doors swing both ways.

    As of the last few days she's started approaching the door (suspiciously) and nosing it gently to. She watches it swing, ears all perky.

    She then slips through the gap and does it from the other side. Then she switches to nosing it a couple of times until it's shut - then has a think about how to open it again.

    I have to say it's incredibly amusing watching her think it through. She even wags her tail when she figures out how to open it again. And yes - once she's comfortable with it I shall exploit her new found talent.

    I once had a dog that ate Root Beer Floats - sat right at the table and ate it out of a bowl! lol

    Another dog I had attacked shadows on the wall & moving bicycle tires.

      Watching a dog attack shadows never gets old.

    My dog is not quite as clever as Boo. The only really bizarre thing that she does is that as soon as I start singing "Eensy Weensy Spider" to my grandkids, she immediately goes belly up and wags her tail. No response to "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" or any of the Yo Gabba Gabba songs (their favs) -- just Eensy Weensy. I can't even begin to imagine what that's about. smile

    My Neighbor is certainly as clever as Boo... But of course one would expect that from a person.
    But what you don't expect is how she greets her guests... Other than a very short person on the lower step of an escalator... I have Never Seen a person greeting their friends by sniffing their bums! yikes
    So Gross.... But you can tell she enjoys it...
    Her tail wags vigorously big_smile

    With all the deep snow around where I live, all three of my dogs are hilarious.  It's the first winter for my two English mastiffs, so they don't know what to do with the snow.  They bark at the snowflakes as they fall from the sky. 

    My long coated German shephard is older and knows what snow is.  He loves to catch snow balls but the best is when he sticks his nose into the snow, then his head proceeds to into the snow and he finally stops burrowing when he's up to his shoulders into the snow.  The whole time, his tail is wagging.  When he finally pulls his head out, he has a powder coating of snow all over his face, head and shoulders.  He looks very much like a bear!  smile

    You should see my Danes react to the word "cookie." We use the c-word to refer to any treat. The boys can be sound asleep in the back of the house, and I can tiptoe into the kitchen and just whisper the word, and they almost kill themselves getting to the kitchen!

      I really think they understand more than we give them credit for.  So cute! :0

    The funniest moment for me in an edless string of them - we had three Old English Sheepdogs, Bobtails.  Snoopy was really big and when he wasn't being really stupid he was sreally bright. Lady was smaller, older and just a Lady really.  Snoopy learned to open door handles which was good because he would let them all out in the morning which saved me getting up sometimes.  Lady did not appear to be so clever until one day she clearly wanted to go out for a pee, looked at the closed door for a moment then went off (ignoring me) and came back with Snoopy - who opened the door for her before going back to bed !

        WEll . . . . When they came into the house they would all sit patiently in the 'lobby' until we came and washed their feet on rainy days. Necessary as their feet were like mops bigger than a big mans hand, and 3 * 4 would be  12 of them spreading mud through the house.

    The funniest habit my dog has is howling at sirens.  He sticks his nose up in the air and mimics the siren, quite well, I might add.  It's hysterical.

    One more thing...  We tell him he should be a doggy movie star quite often.  We're not sure what that sounds like to him, but it gets him all excited when we say those three words.  Hollywood here he comes.
