Quirks common to other breeds?

GSD: head tilt

Husky: crossed paws. Trust me, I've asked about this quirk on my husky forum and was delighted by the number of pictures and responses.

Do you know any quirks common to other dog breeds?

Our vizsla crossed his paws like that too and held his head high like he was a classy fellow. Which he was. They other thing he always did, and I've seen others do this as well, is make this sound when they play that I can only describe as a vizsla "roo". Absolutely hilarious.

My Dalmatian crosses his paws and so does his littermates. They make grunting/moaning noises that sound very similar to growls and they smile with their teeth so they look like they are angry. They also drool!!!!

Sight hounds' subtle gestures. Instead of barging into you for attention they quietly position/park themselves next to you to "give you the opportunity to pet them".
Borzoi and Collies: blowing in their cheeks when they greet or check you out, it makes me melt.

Rottweiler: Grumbling/Growling when they are happy and content. Leaning into you, sitting on your feet.

The leaning I have seen Dobermans do this. We had a few Dobermans in class. They would lean with what seemed like their whole body weight into their owners. It always made me laugh

Siberian Cat
Many of them like water. They will drop their toys in water. Some even like swimming, & going in the shower with you. There very dog-like. My cat will greet me when I come home, & will watch me leave. The other Siberian cats I know do the same thing.

Danes lean. A couple friend of mine have them and they all do the lean.. whole body weight too

Not sure if it's GSD related specifically but Titan is the only dog I've ever known to grown and grumble, almost talk back, when he doesn't want to do something.
