Bisou always sits with one paw in the air. I have seen many pics of Paps with a raised foot. What is the deal?

Hmmm not sure. Daisy doesnt do this. Boston does though but only after he broke his leg. But I was told most dogs with broken legs after they heal will always do this. But I dont think that is what you are talking about so not sure.

My Papillon does this ALL THE TIME. In fact, his main profile pic and his forum icon both show him doing this.

I think it's just a breed trait that hits some Papillons and not others- like Bichons doing the JR thing, where they kind of dance with their front paws, you know? (I have a video of another Papillon doing that, too!)

But yeah, I don't think there's anything wrong with the pup, it's just a quirk. My Kujo does it so much that my friends joke about me having a three-legged dog.

My mom thinks it’s really cute when I do it, and people always comment on it. By the way Sawyer we have the same leash that you have on in your pictures

I don't do it all the time, but sometimes.smile

Sorry Charlie!

Charlie does it all the time. I tell him he doesn't look like a man-dog when he does it. =D

It's all about- meeeee!

I do this too! It's the cutest ever! My mom has FINALLY figured out why I do it though.. surprise! I love my little pappy armpits scratched!

I come over to mom, raise my little paw and she scratches my wittle pitties until my eyes droop and I almost fall into a love coma. BOL!

Darnit I'm cute!

I do this! I never thought that other paps might do it, too!

hahaha... Toby does this too. He even does a weird little march when he wants to play. He raised one paw at a time. I love it!!!!
