|So, today I got to thinking about our beloved little 4 legged friends and how unique each pup really is. My two are siblings from the same litter, and it's amazing how different in personality they are! Each of them have funny little behavioral quirks that I've noticed in them that I haven't seen in any other dog's I've ever owned before.
For example, Oogie is a total little devious manipulator. She KNOWS that Kip gets crazy mad jealous if I pay attention to any dog other than him, so she's figured out how to use this to her advantage... If Kip is chewing on something that Oogie wants, like a deer antler or a bully stick, she will look at him, come over to wherever I am, and begin being all sweet and junk. Ofcourse, I respond by talking to her and telling her what a cute little princess she is, and then Kip IMMEDIATELY comes bounding into the picture and wedges himself between us, making a fool of himself rolling around and whatnot. THE MINUTE Kip gets there and is distracted by my pettings (and is consequently very proud of himself for stealing my attention from Oogie- you can see the happy smug look on his face), Oogie sneak prances out of the picture and goes and steals whatever Kip was chewing on. She's done this MULTIPLE times. After poor Kip realizes what's happened, he gets very upset and proceeds to go to where Oogie is, flail around on the floor, and make these yodely-whine type noises as a signal of his protest to what just happened. You would think he would notice the pattern, but his oblivious to it each and every time... Note: He is DOUBLE her size, so it's a pretty ridiculous site to see. You would think with his size he would just take it from her! The tiny one though, she's the boss. A little honey badger in disguise.
Kip, on the other hand, I would say is completely composed of quirks and noodles. He's the biggest goofball I've ever encountered. Total cheesecake and attention monger. The funniest thing he does is his reaction to the word "cottage cheese." He literally flips out and acts like he's going to explode- starts "singing" even at the MENTION of the word. I've tried to trick him by just saying cottage or just saying cheese, but it's only when the two are said together that he goes nuts. He REALLY likes cottage cheese. And fetch. And running. And tricks. And just about everything other than baths... though he's a bit OCD about licking the water off of my feet when I get out of the shower.
So what are your pups' funny little behavioral quirks? I'm always interested in hearing about the silly things other people's dogs do!
