Akira will not eat out of her bowl.
Each meal is a courtship.
We bring the bowl to her, feed a few nuggets, she will gingerly take it, then look at us like" not this crap again."
After a few hand fed bits, THEN she will eat on her own.
Every-time we eat at the dining room table she will sneak under and lay there until the meal is done.
Every morning when she hears me stir, she comes and licks my neck and armpits until I get up.

|CindyMDBecker||BTW: it sounds way worse than it is ... Her bite is not a true attack. She sounds like a demon but sort of side swipes when connecting. She goes right back to her position on the couch & makes crazy "oof" sounds egging him on. It's more play than anything but she definitely thinks she's the boss.|

|CindyMDBecker||When Garrison tried humping my crossed leg my little female terror, I mean terrier, flew off the couch & bit him. She is instant demon toward him & her bossy attitude escalates in a split second. Well he is a doof & has figured out he can get a reaction EVERY time he paws at my leg, sits against my leg, hooks on my leg as if he's going to hump. All the while turning to stare at her & without fail it provokes her. If she hasn't noticed within a few attempts he will walk UNDER my legs back & forth (very uncomfortable seeing how I don't have the flexibility for high straight leg lifts from a sitting position). THAT catches her eye & wham ... She has moves like Jimmy Superfly Snuka (80's wrestler ... Yikes!). I actually am humored he TRIES to get attacked. (sigh)|

Gunther is a couch licker :P haha he drenched our old futon to the point where the fabric was stained. We switched to leather...he still licks it but at least it doesn't show and I can wipe it clean haha.
He will also lay and whine on the ground when a toy rolls under the couch and will not let it go even when we show him another toy... the one UNDER the couch is much better of course :P

Tilda's special. If I don't keep a close eye on her in the backyard she sneaks and eats her own poop. It's disgusting, and her breathe is horrible for a while.
Her other quirk, is grunting. After she's been asleep for a while or just feels like complaining she'll grunt "ERRRRRGH"! She's so dramatic about it I can't help to smile.

Gunner has two bowls of water. He will lick one dry before starting on the other. I will refill the empty bowl but he won't touch it until he finishes the other one first.
As soon as I grab his leash he will run to the front door and paw at the heating grate next to the door. I have no clue why but he does it every time.
When I ask him to "find his marrow bones" he will run to the freezer and nose at it.
I then oblige and give him one but he will walk the perimeter of the house with the bone in his mouth. Round and round he goes, living room, to dining room, to kitchen, family room then back to the beginning. It's like he's in trance. He'll do this for 10-15 minutes. Then "bury" it in his bed by the powder room and lay a few feet away to "watch it" and make sure nobody steals it.
When my husband sneezes he'll come running to make sure he's okay.
Last night he was doing the marrow bone routine when hubby sneezed. He was in the kitchen and immediately dropped the bone and came running to him. He checked him, my hubby said "I'm okay" and gave him a pat on the head. He was satisfied and went back to his bone.
Know what he does when I sneeze? Nada, nothing, couldn't care less.

Leo has a few quirks:
He loves his butt scratched, that is pretty normal for dogs, but Leo's idea of greeting people (including me when I get home) is to go straight through between the legs so that you are facing his butt. When you stop scratching, he turns around to go through again. This is adorable most of the time, but now that he has grown he tends to be a bit too tall for some people and manages to nearly topple some of my shorter friends and scare some of my male friends who aren't familiar with him. :P
He also has this obsession with birds! He knows where the bird sits in my balcony (I live in an apartment) and will wait by the balcony door to be let out to chase it away. He does this in the park too. Except once he found about 8 huge peacocks! I have never seen that large a bird take flight so fast! I wish I could have taken my camera out faster!

If the boyfriend and and I are having a conversation with Rommel sitting next to us, he sometimes feels excluded and makes a fuss untill we "include" him. Usually his contribution is a request for more ice cubes to be given per day. Sometimes when it gets late and he is ready for bed, he will bark at the bedroom door so he can be let in to put himself in his crate. He also HAS to sleep on a pillow above one of our heads when he is in the bed with us, usually sharing the pillow we have for our head as well.

|sechattin||Oh, for some reason Kaiju has decided that the farther he tilts his head backwards, the more polite he's being. I see this happen most often when he's waiting to be released to take his food. From the moment I tell him to wait, he slowly starts tilting his head straight backwards. If I let it keep going for longer than 20 seconds or so, he starts reaching exorcist extremes of head tilting and I start to wonder if that's uncomfortable? He'll get to the point where his head is back over his shoulders, but his eyes are half whites and half color because he's keeping his focus on me, waiting for that release cue.|
