snuffles the whirling dervish

Doesn't Spike do that? I thought maybe all dogs did it?

Snuffle's speaks!
One of my dogs pees standing on its two front feet, hind feet in the air. Greta is very talented.

And is Snuffles curious about your little rituals?

Switchsky said...

Yes,Spiker spins like crazy, before shitting and like a maniac when chasing his tail.
We've taken to calling him Spike-a-delic...

Greta! OOooo!

we had a hermaphrodite pug who peed with one leg lifted and a little squat at the same time. She didn't spin except for before going to sleep. she was a confused pug.

I heard they do that to check for snakes.

Poo poo placement is very important to dogs. It's something akin to where you sit at the conference table in the boardroom.

I wonder if size matters?

Prozacville said...

Strange, author, that even after hearing it from the very mouth OF A DOG, you still insist on surmising.

I think you'll find that if you actually ASK your dog why she does what she does, she'll tell you.

And her/his answer will be pretty fucking close that of Snuffles, currently named: Snuffy The Pampers Slayer.

happiness is a warm dog waste bag

Non-happiness is when the little fucker doesn't realise she's still spinning whilst attempting to take a dump.
