For Ranger it's the tail chase and biting his front leg when you scratch juuuust right!

I do have a very quirky gsd lol

Gypsy is a notorious night scavenger in the middle of the night... She will raid all the bathroom garbage pails and remove tp roles, she will raid the laundry room, steal socks, she will paper plates off night stands, toys etc. from both floors and places them in the family room in a nice pile in the middle of the room.. nothing is ever chewed or destroyed, just placed in a pile.. LOL .. In the morning when i find her collection she just looks at me .. like she has no idea...

her other quirk is she likes to be saved...

when she feels ignored.. she will go into a bathroom... and will close the door with a slam with her paw (literally). Soon after I will hear a single whisper like "ruff " in approx 30 second intervals until someone "saves" her LOL..

It was so funny to finally see her in action.. the one bathroom she does this in has two entries.. I was able to sneak up watch her little antic.. after she closes the door she stands there watching the door waiting ... it is hilarious. She is so happy when saved..

She has done these for years.. But... must make sure all bathroom doors are closed at bedtime.. there has been some 2:00 am save me's (not so cute at those times)

I chose "other." Cooper takes his bones and hides them in the furniture or in the laundry. :-)

I chose the bites himself when I find his 'spot' and other, because Berlins most quirkiest trait is that he is a serial kiss giver He gives me SOOOOO many kisses!

When Huter and I are somewhere fun and enjoying ourselves, when its time to go home, Huter will go completely limp and refuse to leave. As in, total floppy dead weight. its ridiculous. If I try to pick any part of his body up, he's just total dead weight.

Also, he hoards his toys like no other. He'll run around and collect ALL his toys on his bed and then lay on top them, wrap his front legs around and lay his head down. Like he's saying "MY TOYS!" I'm talking, like, 15 toys....

Finn will burp in your face if you rub under his chin. He sounds just like a human! He also is a huge talker and he'll have a full conversation with you. His last quirk; he'll "dig" in a spot just before he lays down. Nothing major, just scraping his paw across the floor a few times, then he lays down.

RIP Sebastian, Baby, Cheyenne, Baxter. Gone but never forgotten.

My dog will find rocks in the back yard and throw them high in the air, run around... find the rock... repeat. He is a nut case. I mean he TOSSES them with his entire body.

He also loves to stare at you and let out a loud, drawn out burp. I tell him good boy and he immediately gets up and wags his tale like he did something amazing.

Walter has always made a mess when drinking water. He sticks his whole snout in and swooshes from side to side, spilling most of the water. In this video he's almost 5 months. He's 18 mos now and still does this outside when drinking. Thankfully we've corrected this indoors!
