Has your Havi ever done this?

For two days now Twizzi has pushed her Bowl around. It's like she want to flip it. She has the same food if your all wondering.
She eats it, but with this pushing thing it's just so weird.
What does this mean? She got a bigger flatter bowl about two weeks ago.So she has been eating from it. She did this over at my In-laws , but they have dogs and I just thought it was because it was not her bowl. I put the food on a plate, but she just left it.
Is there an expert that can tell what's going on with this new quirk?

Bailey has always done this. I've thought, with him that he was still hungry or thirsty and telling me to fill the bowl.

Well her bowl is about half full and she does this while she's eating.
So, does your dog ever knock the bowl over, or just around?

My eldest does this quite often. If I have put her bowl on a towel or cloth pad, she will push things it over the bowl too. She has a really sensitive nose though, so I just assume it has something to do with the food being too smelly, but she does it even with food she really loves too. It doesn't stop her from eating when she's hungry, so I just consider it to be one of her quirks.

Dexter rocked an empty water bowl when he basically told me he was thirsty and told me to fill the water bowl. Haven't seen Dexter or Jack play with the food bowls.

Well I guess I'm glad to know it maybe just a quirk!

Tori has always been what I call a "bowl tipper", any food or water dish is fair game to her, which is why my DH designed and made this for her to use. It's how we keep our hardwood floors from being ruined

Liam does this too. He will use his paw to tip the bowl over. I noticed that he will do this when the bowl is almost empty, probably just to let me know.

Capote does this when he wants more food or water.
