Lizard or frog?

I've never seen a dog do this, is it a breed thing?  Who knows, all I can say is Casey does the craziest things with her back legs.  She loves to curl her back "toes" up like a baby and she always has her legs spread out like a frog about to leap.

When she was younger, she would naw on her back leg, like a pacifier or something.  She never broke the skin, but man she would chew and chew it.  I'm glad she doesn't do this much anymore, it made me laugh, but it also freaked me out a little. 

This pose however, can last, I just laugh like crazy when I see have to admit, it is cute!

We love our crazy dog!

She is insane, crazy, nutty and down-right OUT THERE!  Do you have a dog like that?  We never know quite what to expect from her.  Once moment she is the sweetest little girl ever and then she does something you just didn't expect.  My husband lovingly calls her NutCase.

One of the things she just loves to do is jump straight up into the air, like a living pogo stick. She actually bounces like she is spring-loaded, which is one of my pet names for her.

Another one of her favorite things is to stick her cold (very cold) wet (very wet) nose everywhere.  Bare  skin is her preference, as well as other places a dogs nose just does not belong!!  Outside, any hole in the ground is a target for that nose.  The other day it came out of some hole sneezing for minutes, one day I'm afraid her nose just won't be on her face anymore.  Our crazy little bundle of fur, we just can't get enough of her.  She keeps us laughing and that in itself is worth all the craziness!

Here comes the airplane.

Casey no longer likes her breakfast. She used to sit next to me,  looking up lovingly while I prepared her morning meal.  Now she hides behind me like a toddler afraid of what might be lurking in the bowl.

Nothing has changed, just one day she decided that she would rather chew a bully stick than have dogfood.  I have created a bully monster...and now I'm paying the price.

It sit on the floor next to her bowl, like the fool I am.  Offering up a bit of kibble or sardine to coax her closer to the dish.  She just burys her nose in my arm.  Maybe she just decided she doesn't like the bit of sardine after-all.  Maybe it's because it was Jake's favorite and she knows that and wants to be her own dog??!!??  Or maybe, just maybe she is spoiled rotten and knows she has complete control.

The dog in the yard goes round and round.....

Does your dog have what we call spaz attacks?  Casey has these moments where she just goes round and round in a big circle in the yard.  She goes so fast that she is almost parallel to the ground.  I think she just needs to burn off her energy, but sometimes when she slows down she looks at you like you are bait.

Being a mixed breed pound dog we really don't know what she is, other than lab.  She looks like she has greyhound, she is crazy like a chihuahua and at times has the glare of a mad pit bull.  I suppose we could get a DNA test, but that won't change the fact that she is just plain nuts and does the craziest things.

She has another nutzie thing she does after my husband & I finish dinner.  I put a handful of kibble in her dish and let her out of her crate.  She makes a mad dash for the bowl, grabs a few bits of food and then runs to the door to the backyard.  Sometimes I think she actually huffs and stomps her paws when I don't let her out quickly enough.  She thens runs to each corner of the yard barking like crazy, as if she is telling everyone something terribly important.  Once she has gotten all the dogs in the neighborhood barking along, she runs back to the house and finishes her food.  Mission accomplished!!
