Midnight has been doing something really strange lately. It started a week or so ago.
She’ll come over to me and say I’m lying on the couch with one or both feet over the edge she’ll lift her front leg so that her body is over my foot/feet. Obviously she wants her belly rubbed.
Then, after a minute or two of having her belly rubbed by my foot, if I’m obliging that is, she’ll move forward and lift one of her back legs and then sink down so that she’s sitting on my foot. Now this is a dog that weighs at least 60 lb so it’s not all that comfortable for me! She does this with my husband too but not as often as she does it to me.
Once I pull my foot out from under her she’ll back up so that I can scratch her bum with my foot, then she’ll start the whole process of getting my foot underneath her again – over and over until I get tired of having my foot abused and sat on and pull it back onto the couch.
Anyone else have a dog with weird habits like trying to sit on one foot that happens to be sticking out?
Oh yeah did I tell you that on Saturday she chewed on my refinished staircase? The one that took me three weeks to scrape paint off of, sand, stain and coat with varnish? She’s lucky she’s still living here!
