What cute habits does your dog have?

    This is sad, I know...but I'm dog crazy.

    We have two back home; lhasa Apsos. Beautiful wee boys so they are. They are brothers from the same litter.

    The habbits they have are just so cute...They both have little smiles that they use when they want food. They're like Elvis smiles. Also, one of them has a taste for Buckfast and likes the skateboard, the other tries to bury his treats in the beanbag we have in our living room...Hilarious!

    Anyone else?

      Dogs are great, but let's not forget the cats.

      I have a beauty, a shaded silver Persian cat that has been a constant companion for many years.  Her cute thing to do is this:  When she is sitting in my lap and I want to get up, if she doesn't want me to, she throws out her paw and tries to hold me down by putting pressure on my leg. She is one smart kitty! smile

      when i was a kid, we had a crazy weiner dog. seriously, this dog was wacky. but very cute. she had a habit of running around in circles. she would always start in a corner and make several complete circles around the room, then the circle would get smaller and smaller until she ended up in the middle of the room, spent. smile

      anyway it sounded like a mini herd of buffalo...

    I have a pure breed Border Collie, 1 year old, loyal, great guard dog, when I feed him he puts his nose against mine and that for me is the best moment of the day....except for when my girlfriend does it also......

    I have a boston terrier that loves beer and coffee, I had a boxer previously and she was the same way. Funniest thing is both liked different beer and coffee, my boxer only would go after my beer if it was bud light, wouldn't touch coors light, she also only liked starbucks carmel machiatto and wouldn't drink regular coffee, my boston terrier will only try to get my beer if I am drinking coors light and he only likes plain coffee.  STRANGE

    I miss my german shepherd. He was such an awesome dog. One thing he'd do that was cute was when we'd give him a bone, he'd go around the house whining, trying various spots to bury his bone. But if we went near it, he felt compelled to find a new spot. He'd spend hours a day, trying to find the perfect place for his bone, whether the closet, under the sofa cushions, and even in kitchen cupboards.

    My German Shepard starts nudging me seconds before the alarm goes off.  Every morning I wake up to a cold nose.

    Griffin the Alaskan malamute and his TV watching - I even did a hub on it - too hilarious! Of course at 7-1/2 months, he is quite impressionable.  He does not like anything but nature shows it seems and the other night while watching a special on Yellowstone, he spied the wolves mating and he began howling and then barking.  I did not realize that I was exposing my poor puppy to 'wolf porn'! He of note was also quite stimulated into barking by the elk and the bears...I guess as they say...'stay tuned'.

    Many years ago I had an Alaskan malamute named Lobo. I was given a doghouse to use and it was divided into 2 compartments. About an hour after I moved him into it, I heard a creaking, snapping sound and I looked out to see Lobo come out of the doghouse with a board in his mouth. He went in and got another and repeated the process until he had removed the partition and could stretch out his 120 lbs. with no barriers.

    Hank is a beast of a Lab...I can't say there is anything "cute" that he does...however he makes me laugh hysterically when he comes up, sits by my feet and starts talking...I seriously can have a conversation and we seem to understand each other...funny boy.

    I don't have pets but my sister's little Maggie is so hyper. She barks at every leaf that falls from the trees. Makes for a noisy autumn.

    My old Redbone cross (died at 15 years of age earlier this year, featured in my profile pic) used to stand with his nose no more than 1/2" away from my face while I was sleeping or laying on the couch and he had to go out. If his meaningful stare failed to wake me, he'd start wiggling his entire body, and then added whining if that failed until I finally woke up. He also always had to be touching me whenever I sat down anywhere, even if it was just a paw on my foot.

    My mini schnauzer cross that joined the family in October is a complete riot and will do anything for attention. She has a toy lizard that she will bring whenever she wants to play, and if we don't play with her she'll keep scooting it up our knees, place it in our hands, or if all else fails she'll hop right on up and place it on someone's chest and sit there with her ears perked up. Alternatively, she will run around the room and throw the lizard up in the air, then look at us with her ears perked up as if to say, "See, this is how we play fetch, okay? Now you try."

    When my husband gets home from work every day, the schnauzer will try her very best to get attention...and then as soon as he sits down she'll run up his legs into his lap, place her forepaws on his chest, nip the end of his nose and then stare at him until he reacts...and then proceed to lick his eyes and nose until he tells her that's enough.
