funny things that they do

So when I got home from work yesterday (Perry was home with my hubby and the housekeeper) and went into the bedroom to change, Perry kept running into his crate then backing out and looking at me - and when I didn't do anything, he'd do it again. I looked inside and didn't see anything (I thought maybe one of his toys was in there). So, I walked into the bathroom and when I walked out there was a piece of poop sitting on the floor in front of the bathroom and he was staring at me. When I picked it up, it was solid - definitely not fresh. Best I can figure is that sometime between when I put him in for breakfast and when my husband let him out an hour or so later he couldn't hold it and pooped a little (which is weird because he goes right before I leave for work) OR he had a piece sticking to his fur when we came inside that I didn't notice that he carried into his crate.

In any event, he definitely decided that he did NOT want it in his crate and when he tried to get me to find it in the actual crate and I was too dim (couldn't see anything in the crate and couldn't figure out what he wanted me to see), he decided he had to remove it himself for Mommy to get rid of (it definitely was not on the floor when he left it before I went into the bathroom). At least it tells me once and for all that I don't have a poop eater - he's willing to touch it to remove it from his space, but only far enough so that someone else takes care of it!

He definitely is a funny about his potty habits. I've mentioned before if he pees on an area rug (or the doormat) because I think he thinks it's a pad, he'll try to cover up the spot with the rest of the rug. He will do the same thing when he decides that the grass is too long and will pee on the rock walkway in front of the house - there are rocks and grass in between them and if he hits the grass all is fine, but if he hits the rock then he will stand there and nose at the grass trying to push it over the rock to cover up the pee on the rock!

He is definitely odd Afterwards I could go back and imagine what he was thinking every time he raced into the crate then backed out and look at me before doing it again 'Come on Mom, you've GOT to see it, it's icky, get it out. Jeez, what's wrong with you, it's right in front of your face, get it out! Ok fine, I got it, here it is, now can you PLEASE flush it!'

I also forgot to mention that occasionally he'll pee on his back foot because as soon as he starts to pee he has to twist around (which usually leaves him leaning on one leg more) so that he can see? his pee leaving his body (and then smells it on the ground when he's done - but that's fairly normal). And when he poops he will drop the first 1-2 pieces then will flip around to smell them while he drops the last bit so it's always 2 little piles every single time.

All from my oddball who has never given any kisses, but has to jump on your lap and smell your breath when you get home before he calms down (if he's really comfortable with you - so so far he only does it to me, my Mom and did it once to my Aunt) or at random times during the day if you're around all day. He's done faster if you deliberately blow your breath in his face when he does this .

Melissa, I love your comments! Willow also turns to smell her pee but has yet to pee on her foot! She does the same thing with the poop. Flips around to smell and then drops the final piece. I have to be careful to watch where it drops as she'll try and find it and if she does she'll eat it. Yuck. She doesn't smell my breath though!

Kodi does the head-turn thing too. My girls seem to be able to figure out that they are peeing without needing to look. LOL!

That has ALWAYS been out "tell" that Kodi was peeing. He has never squatted, nor does he lift his leg unless he is truly "marking" as opposed to just needing to pee. But if he's really peeing, he ALWAYS has to look and see what's going on back there! LOL!

Whats’ worse is that Bingo always has to stick his nose in the way when Mitzi is peeing ... he will literally get it in the face if I am not vigilant. I won’t mention the time that a #2 hit him square on the head ... he is definitely not the brightest dog in my pack, lol!

Cheers,

Mine always checks to see if you are watching. First he looks to make sure the pee is working, then he turns to make sure you’re paying attention, and then he proudly looks straight ahead to pose while he finishes his business.

I had a really hard time recognizing marking (which was my fear and totally came true) because my dog doesn’t lift his leg at all. He didn’t do it really frequently so it went on for a little while before I figured out what was going on and I’m so glad it didn’t turn out worse!
