My dog has some funny quirks. It seems that she gets more and more of them each week!
Her latest thing is that she doesn’t like her crate door closed … this is when she’s not in it. We’ll let her out in the morning and she’ll do things with us or play with her toys, chew her bone and so on, but when she notices that we’ve closed her crate door (because it’s easier for us to get by if it’s closed) she’ll walk up and nose it open, wide open. If I close it the next time I walk by she’ll get up and open it again.
The other night I sat beside her near her crate and while the door was open I pulled it towards me by a few inches as if I was closing it and she’d shove her nose between the crate door and my hand and nose it further open. She did this several times until I started laughing at her.
She also loves to blow bubbles in her water with her nose. She’s done this from day one in our home.
Plus when we give her a real beef bone, you know one of those huge ones that you can get in the pet store, she gnaws off one end so that it’s hollow and then she loves sticking her nose in the bone for several minutes at a time. She’ll just sit there with her nose in the bone, then she’ll take her nose out and snuffle against the bone and repeat the steps.
I caught her in the act on Saturday evening when we were enjoying some time in the backyard:
As you can see she’s got three or four inches of her nose firmly stuck into the hollow end of the bone. She sat like that for at least two minutes before taking her nose out.
Weird I tell ‘ya.
