What odd or quirky behavior do your pets have?

Squeezie, one of our adopted greyhounds has an eye disease called Pannus. (Left untreated, her eyes would get kind of a foggy web-like film on them.) We have since then, FINALLY found a medicine that she isn't allergic to. Until then, we had to turn the lights on in the stairway (even in the daytime) so she could see the dark hardwood floor stairs.
Once she fell, (even with the lights on) so our other adopted greyhound Cleo, decided she would be Squeezie's seeing eye dog.
If Cleo followed us down the stairs and Squeezie was still at the top (crying) we would say, "Go help Sissy" and Cleo (without any training) would run back up the stairs, circle around Squeezie, then Squeezie would follow Cleo down the stairs, leaning on her if she had to.

Hey, HalfaMinute,

I've heard of dogs doing this for each other before! I never cease to be amazed however, everytime I hear of this act of love--not to mention AMAZING intelligence!

I love reading everyone's posts!

I have a 5 yr old Blue Heeler. An Australian Cattle dog named Sheila.
She's completely OCD, and even was treated for it when she was 8 months old with puppy Prozac. Really! I took her off the meds, and worked on behavior modifications instead. She's 1/2 way adjusted to pet-life.

She does this circular tail chasing- with tasmanian devil growling sound when she gets too excited. It's her way of "processing" the event! It scares the dickens out of people that dont know her, though!

my 11 month cocker/golden Tessie loves to play with flys - she bats them around like a cat and nudges them forward with her nose til they pretty much can't move anymore.
She also talks to me - all i have to do is talk sweet talk to her and she talks back!
I don't worry much about not being able to have any more kids cuz i have her!!!!!!!!!!! hehe

Cool!.....you should get Yager on video doing that.

I used to have a greyhound that would stand on the carpet in the living room, then stretch her front paws out to the stone tile flooring of the entryway and bang them really fast (like she was playing bongo drums.) The sound of her nails hitting the tile and watching her wag her tail and shake her behind at the same time was really funny. (My dh called it "the mommy dance" because she would do it every morning when I got home from work...but never do it for him.)
Sadly.....we never captured her performance on video and she has since crossed the rainbow bridge.

I rescued a small kitten a year ago. She has the bad habit of "stealing" my chapsticks and hiding them under my son's bed! She leaves everyone else's stuff alone, just feels the need to "steal" my chapsticks!

|We have an Irish Wolfhound named |Reggie. Before our Boston |Terrier, |Winston, crossed the rainbow bridge, Reggie was his seeing eye dog also.
Reggie also loves to sit on a dining room chair and just look around--no I do not let her eat at the table
Reggie also has a habit of taking her stuffed toys outside with her. Imagine a 110# dog with a stuffed winnie-the -pooh in her mouth walking around!!

My one year old jack russell maggie will start out gently pawing at your arm if you quit petting her before she is ready,and if you still ignor her she will start digging with both paws as fast as she can on your arm and look at you as if to say "I SAID YOU WERENT DONE YET!" it was funny when she was 3 months old but can get very irritating now!She will also talk back if you tell her no.I think that she is a bratty 2 or 3 year old throwing a tantrum!

Stasha, aka Goofball, has this habit of burrowing head first into our cat condo so that her butt sticks out the top; then she reaches back up on top with her paw and whacks at her tail. She also lies on top of the cat tree and chases her tail around and around the post. We also have a picture of her looking through her legs at the camera, as if she's standing on her head. Our little weirdo!
