@figgnewton:  Is that your daughter? Too cute.

Where do I begin with my furbaby’s neurotic behaviour? I will limit it to three:

1. He spins in circles compulsively before he will sit, lay down, or do pretty much anything

2. He weighs 65 pounds by firmly believes he is a lap dog. He will not rest until he is sitting on someone’s lap (anyone will do, but he loves mama best)

3. When we play fetch, he has to run right past us (every time) and then promptly turn around, spin, sit, and drop the ball

My puppy Koda learned how to smile recently. It kinda creeps me out to be honest. 😛

Allie (my pitt bull) is in LOVE with our puggle, Maggie.  Maggie could care less.  So, Allie spends the evenings trying to chase Maggie down so that she can groom her.  How does she groom her? she nibbles at her sides like she is eating corn on the cob.  It is hilairous.

@Leasli:  My dog will make that face by accident but we can’t tell him to. I wish!

@figgnewton:  my dog collects socks. She just really loves socks. We find them in piles everywhere. She will go through the laundry basket looking for socks. And she doesn’t discriminate, cleandirtyblackwhitecolored as long as it’s a sock.  She also has a thing for hair ties. She likes to chase them around and pop them like a fool. She has hit herself in the nose more than once and I just laugh at her cuz it doesn’t make her stop, like a moth to a flame….

may I present… ms. matilda rose.

Tippi, our dog, is extremely afraid of ceiling fans and loves to eat grass and cherry pits (found in the courtyard of our apartment building) when she is excited. And she doesn’t feel any pain, like at all. Granted, she is a pitbull and they are known for a high pain threshold, but it still weirds me out because I’ve never heard her yelp from pain, even after running into a door or two.

Ophelia, our cat, loses control of her tail sometimes and will get mad at it. She will hiss, meow and swat at her tail as it thumps uncontrollably. She is such a spaz. She also really enjoys spinach.

My cat, Angus, is cross eyed, which makes him extra awesome. And he likes to run hot laps around the house. He’s only 6 lb right now, due to be around 20, and he already sounds like he’s ripping the carpet up when he sprints! Oh, and he likes to chase his tail. Hes a catdog for real!

Jack sits like people, licks plastic bags till he starts coughing, and will climb in anyones lap (including the comcast guy he’s never met before).

If we’re eating something really delicious for dinner like a steak, our dog will find a toy and drop it at our feet.  It’s her way of proposing a trade for the steak.  It never works.

She also has a specific section in the kitchen called the “food spot”.  At every meal, she will sit in this spot patiently while we measure out her kibble and put it in the dish.  Eventually, we’ll tell her to go ahead and she’ll run to her dish.  I forget exactly how this started – I think one night as a puppy, she was being really annoying and we told her to stay in that spot while we made her dinner.  But now, she can’t eat a meal without going to the food spot first.

@figgnewton:  Was it easy to introduce the baby to your dog? I assume you had the dog first, but I could be wrong. We are a bit concerned about that, but we plan to enlist our trainer’s support.
