Default What silly little thing do you absolutely love about your GSD?

Watching Hans eat some treats I just put in his bowl, I realized I love to watch his flews move as he munches

I also love the flat spot on top of his head-- perfect for laying my cheek and getting close.

These (and there are many more) melt my heart every time.

What about you?

The way she tells me what she wants and knows what I"m saying. If she's staring at me and barking at me and I ask her What? she runs over and tags what she wants with her nose or she'll run over and stare at it. When I say "I have to go get your food" she races for the basement door. Tell her it's time for bed, she races for the bedroom.

She is by far the smartest dog I've ever had. I think she understands more than she lets on.

I love the way Hondo looks at me. It is as if we share a secret between the two of us.

Sometimes when other people are in the room, he'll look over at me and wink. It's like he is in my head.

I'm also a big fan of the flat spot. I love how she checks in with me if I'm in a different room, even if it's just peeking her head around the corner to make sure I haven't been swallowed alive by the floor.

I also love our nightly snuggle sessions, when she has her head in my lap and lets out the biggest sigh followed by what I consider an eye roll if I move in a way that she deems unnecessary.

Their personalities continue to amaze me.

His intelligence, between him and Jazzy sometimes I kick myself for getting two super smart breeds at the same time. I don't think I can go back to other breeds, it's great having smart dogs you can talk to with a quick hand movement or even a head tilt and they know exactly what you mean

Also like Lilie says about Hondo, sometimes he'll just sit there and stare at me with his big brown eyes. I've never bonded so quickly with a dog, he'll be a total goofball but then will jump so quickly to just snuggle on the couch so he can get in his cuddle time He likes to give me a kiss just before snuggling, it's like his "I love you mom" kiss. He's the total package

I love Koda's multi-step process for getting attention. It always makes me giggle.
I also love to watch her play with her stuffed animals, because she thinks they're real puppies and she lines them up against her "so they can suckle."
I love her HUGE satellite ears, which seem bigger than most, and the way they crinkle when she gets bored or confused.
I loveee how when I get onto her, she grumbles back at me then looks away when I look at her. She even shakes her head when I ask if she backtalked me
There's just so much I love about her!!!

I love these and can relate to most of them!

I love his pricked ears. In the evening when I walk him and I see our shadows, I love to see his pointy-eared one I also love how his ears are part of his body language. I can tell how he feels at every moment.

I also love the "state-of-the-mama-check" he gives me every morning. He has been doing this since he was a tiny puppy. When I go get him to take him outside, he *must* give me a quick sniff to make sure I am OK before he will let my put on his collar

eta: The one time when I approached him when I was sick with a high fever, he sniffed me and looked so dismayed that I thought I must be seriously ill. Turns out he was right.

Ohhh I love this.

With Kya I love when she comes over and woofs me. She is not a big fan of attention but she will come over and stick her head under my hand and woof. Also when she goes out and barks at nothing then looks at me like "I swear it was there"

Milla does so many things that make me just laugh.

The shower check, even though she is asleep right outside the shower, she still has to poke her head in just in case I left by secret door.

She chews her bones or plays with her toys while laying on her back spread eagle. Makes me laugh every time.

She plops down right in the middle of the kitchen floor every time I cook.

When we walk everyday and there is something she just HAS to stop and sniff, she will sniff, look at me like "please" and then go back to sniffing intently.

I have so many. Love this thread!

I can be reading on my bed for an hour, I go to turn out the light and put my Nook away, and Grizz-who has been laying on the floor beside my bed the whole time, will ALWAYS give a big, huge sigh as soon as I get comfortable,like he's been waiting that whole time for me to go to sleep so he can give in.
Everytime he gives me his Check-me-out sniff, he presses in with his nose rather than just a normal old sniff.
When he licks something, he does it sooo slow. Sometimes he even sort of forgets he's licking it and his tongue hangs out not moving on said object (like his paw usually) lol
Love my GSD ;-)
