My springer does 'high 5'!

Not sure this is really 'special' but this morning my pointer was staring into the bottom of her water bowl and then stuck her nose in and started blowing bubbles in the water. She stopped and stared again and then did it again 2 more times and then walked off without getting a drink. She is a bit odd though bless her. When I first got her she used to fall asleep standing up and then only wake up when she fell over. She is a real sweetie but not blessed in the brains department. LOL

LOL - my springer also does this, she loves blowing bubbles in her water bowl. She also likes to dunk her tennis ball!!

My old vizsla was always dropping her toys in the water bowl - mainly because she was thirsty and didn't want to put the ball down in case "mum" picked it up so it was easier to try and drink with it still in her mouth! Instead of picking it out again, she would then just stand and bark at the water bowl until "mum" fished it out again. http://www.horseandhound.co.uk/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

Tilly just dunks it then sits on her bed squeezing all the water out again, no idea why but then she doesn't like to lay on her wet bed. Maybe its a ploy so she can get on settee with me!

I love my Finian's huge toothy grin when I 've been out. And Harvey the springers habit of having to drop things into buckets,washing baskets, handbags.....
Never forget the time at work that I reached into my bag for a banana and pulled out a soggy chewed rawhide bone!!!

She knows quite a few tricks (high five; up; shake; rollover; crawl). But the best thing she does is dance, freestyle.

Just give her a rug and she's away http://www.horseandhound.co.uk/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

One of my grans dogs does High 5. We found her abandoned. Another thing I find really speacial is Stella (the dog we found abandoned) always lies at the gate for a day when we leave our grans house. Bless her. She is so attached to us.

Has she been practising? She has some cool new moves I think!

16-03-07, 05:59 PM
Ours can pass wind for over 30 seconds audibly without a break!!!!! Talented or what!!!!
He has special commands for us and can ask to be winded if he needs a burp...he also headbutts you when he's hungry and jumps on my back and wrestles as soon as the music to Emmerdale comes on as when he was a pup this was 'rumble time' and he has never forgotten it despite my hope he would!

My Boxer Lucy, smiles and wiggles her bottom when she greets me and also likes to give a big burp into her feedbowl after her breakfast and tea!! http://www.horseandhound.co.uk/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

My boy used to (died this week) be able to beg and when we made a bang noise lay down and roll over. He also liked to pretend to do aerobics and jump up and down on the spot really high if I was doing it.

He knew the difference between a ball and a "squeaky" and would bring what we asked for. Clever little lad. Sadly missed and loved.

She gets nuttier and more experimental with each passing day. I'm often sat in the lounge and can hear the scrape on the carpet, thuds, and sometimes, if she's really into it, growling http://www.horseandhound.co.uk/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

I didn't mention her penchant for fetch, did I? I swear, no Jack Russell or Lab comes close to my Bostie when it comes to fetch http://www.horseandhound.co.uk/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif If only there was a flyball club nearby http://www.horseandhound.co.uk/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

The 5 of them all sit in a row and each give the paw one at a time for a treat- very sweet!! They then all catch the treat one at a time when you throw it at them. The springer does this mad thing where she rolls on her back and wiggles around and 'talks' to herself in a kind of growly way, hard to describe! She also lies on her back and balances balls and toys between her front legs, and falls asleep flat on her back with her ears splayed out, looks very funny!! Shes quite mad anyway!! The 2 colliex who are brothers and look really similar do great pairs with a stick between them and race around the arena in complete synchronicity, even jump the fences!!

My JR retrieves anything and everything so far this week he has drop a half dead rat and a mouse head at my feet. The worst thing was I was round at my friends having coffee when he walked into the louge and spat the mouse head at my feet. http://www.horseandhound.co.uk/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

Millie can do "Gimme 5" and 10, roll over, beg, twizzle - stands on her back legs and spins round and can walk a few steps on her back legs.

17-03-07, 01:54 PM
Thanks for your replies folks, I think all our dogs are special and have their own little ways.

My oldest Doberman likes to steal things, mobile phones etc and sneak off to her bed with them. She had a speaky toy that lasted years, it went everywhere with her.

My border collie can roll over and also jumps through hoops.

18-03-07, 12:03 AM
Ulla grabs my nose in her mouth in the morning to wake me up... if that doesn't work (and I'm pretending to still be asleep) she jumps on the bed. This is very naughty of her and has the instant required result of me getting out of bed and letting her out of the room! http://www.horseandhound.co.uk/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Troy used to open the back door and then shut it behind him!
Echo climbs trees........

18-03-07, 01:06 PM
The other two don't do many special things but one of our labs (a rescue) really isn't too clever! She carries her rope around everywhere with her. She has:

- Tried to eat with the rope in her mouth then relieases after a few minutes that she has to drop the rope.

- Same as above but with her water bowl

- When she went into Kennels, apparently when anyone went to the door she'd pick up the water bowl and tip it over either her own head or all over everyone else!

The list goes on http://www.horseandhound.co.uk/forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

The YO's collie, if you clap twice at her she jumps up into your arms, mad, you do have to be ready to catch her, she is quite a small collie BTW!
