Oh my lord!!! Midnight is being so funny this morning! He's been trying in vain to catch his shadow! We're selling a house which has shiny wood floors and he can see his shadow (or reflection) in the floor. He looks at the floor then pounces on his shadow!

I've tried explaining that he's already caught it as it won't go anywhere without him, but I don't think he believes me. So cute!!!

I'd attach a pic but he seems to know when I'm trying to take his picture and he gets all up on the camera so I can't get him in the shot...

Work to distract him from doing this - give him a toy, or start some obedience, this is similar to a laser pointer and GSDs (and a terrier breed) do not do well with this.

I know it's (REALLY) cute, but because of the breed, I would give him something else to do.
