Cute thread

When Mac gets praise he jumps up and runs in a quick circle. Reminds me of a football player after making a touchdown.

When 'bruiser' gets a case of the zoomies he will start chasing his tail in the middle of it and then continue running around the room and jumping on furniture. Thank goodness it only last for a couple minutes

I can't pick just one thing. Kaiser makes me laugh constantly (when he isn't being naughty). One of the bests is how he looks at me when he sneaks butt rubs (gets me to pet him and the walks out so I am scratching his toosh) and just looks back at me like "that's the spot". He also flings himself back on me if I'm sitting, laying or standing for that matter!

The other one is the little dance he does EVERY time I feed them. He does a little hop and spin as he escorts me to Raven's spot and hen runs and sits in his crate to wait for his bowl.

When they are naughty that's when its cute cause they just have that face that says, I did not do it mommy, I promise. Or the guilty wag of the tail. O so smart they are!

Ridley tries to carry as many toys as possible in his mouth. He can easily carry 2 good sized toys and often tries for 3 small ones. He pushes all of them around in a little group until he either succeeds or gives up. There are a few combinations of toys that he knows he can carry together and he is very deliberate in the order he must use to get them all in his mouth at the same time. It's quite entertaining to watch him think it through. One night he tried to put 2 balls onto a frisbee and then pick up the frisbee. I was trying to video tape it but was laughing too much and he got distracted.

I would love to see that, if you ever get it on video, you have to post it!

Bianca doesn't have any of the quirks mentioned in the poll or many others for that matter.

One thing she does like to do is roll around on her back a lot.
When she goes out in the yard she'll often flip on her back in the grass (or snow if it's winter) and then wiggle around. She also likes to pick up a toy, roll over on her back and stay laying on her back with her head upside-down as she chews on the toy.
She also likes to roll over for tummy rubs. Last time I took her in to donate blood she was being so goofy, she just kept trying to roll over on her back so the techs could rub her tummy, while they were trying to get the needle in!

Another funny thing she used to do was when she was playing with her friend Calvin the Husky/Lab mix, she would run so Calvin would chase her and then in the middle of running she would do a sudden quick spin in the middle of running, or suddenly go into a roll while running full speed and flip over! A few times when she did this, Calvin had to jump over her because he was running right behind her when she suddenly did a roll... Sometimes she'd also roll over on her back and use her legs to kick Calvin (in play, they liked to play rough.)
Unfortunately Calvin moved away so she doesn't get to play with him anymore.

Here are some videos of them playing:
