head tilt

Does your dog do the Nipper head tilt? Every time I put a question voice on, Gryff will cock his head. It cracks me up. I can do it all day long and giggle every time.

yeah it is endearing. It is thought that dogs do it to hear better. Something has captured their interest and they tilt their heads to hear more. Dogs with pendulous ears tend to do it more than dogs with pricked ears. I love it. Just whispering will cause Molly to do it.

Kodi does all the time, but Shelby doesn't. It's so cute
when they do it.

I love it too! And - do you also get the unblinking benevolent stare when you are eating something. No rudeness - jumping, yipping that sort of thing. Just those pleading eyes that wear you down quickly!

Oh I love the head tilt but I am surely not a good enough photographer to capture it!

Gryff is so funny with it. He will keep tilting until his head is about to fall off, then he will tilt in the other direction. I love the picture of Comet! They just crack me up.
