Mercurial Monday


Sam here. Mom has been working on a couple new, regular ideas for the blog and the first one she said I could contribute on the first go-round. She wanted me to highlight what she refers to as the ‘quirky’ things I do that make her snort coffee through her nose tickle her heart. Personally, I think she’s being sarcastic but hey…if she’s gonna give me the laptop, I’m pawing out my side of the story, the way I see it!


Mom says it cracks her up whenever I face rub my eye snort face against her thigh or on the comforter. Again, I think she’s being smart-alecky but she does giggle…but oddly only after there is loud shrieking and ‘ew’s,’  especially when I rub against Dad’s side of the bed. Heh, heh.

cd3f0a554c608e0b19b7b8724a5a659eDoes your dog exhibit any quirky behavior that gives you pause ‘paws’? Be sure to share them in the comments, I need to show mom us 4-legged critters are the normal ones…’kay?

Live, love, bark! <3

  1. Ottie emits a long, deep pitched sound to alert me to the fact he is in need of a cookie. Portia will get on the couch and lift my arm with her nose to indicate I have to hug her!

  2. Arty latest funny habit is jumping in the bed in the morning (when liberated from his den) and burrowing into either my husband or I!!

  3. Good job keeping your face clean, S. Mom thinks it’s funny when I finish eating my dinner and I sneeze and then burp and then come to her for a treat like I did something brilliant. Is that quirky? To me, it’s just part of my routine.

    Love and licks,

  4. I don’t have quirks. Mom, stop laughing! OK, she said that when I stay home with Dad, which isn’t often anymore, we have our GTM (Go To the Mailbox). We walk (I run) to the end of the driveway, I walk along the bottom of the yard while Dad gets the mail, I do my bizness, and finally get a treat when we get back to the front door. Oh, and Sam, you look like a poodle with your new “do.” 🙂

  5. Quirky huh? Well when mom rubs the side of my pot belly, I fall down. Mom calls it pig tipping. I call it embarrassing. Snorts and oinks! XOXO – Bacon

      1. I know – shakes my head – I just can’t help it. Her touch and BOOM I’m out like Mike Tyson in a fight. Snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

  6. oh, where do I start? Just one, Cole’s very schedule oriented. I came down early this morning and saw he and dh have rituals I am not a part of. DH has cereal and yogurt, then Cole licks the bowl. Every. Day. Cole couldn’t stop to say good morning until he made sure no other dog (apparently including me in this) got that bowl. Then the (gall bladder pill) butter treat. In that order. Shrug… maybe I should continue to sleep in and let them do their thing. LeeAnna

  7. Easy is full of quirky behavior… I sometimes wonder that he exactly knows how to tease me when I did something he disliked… today Mark was the victim, as revenge for the ear cleaning Easy shredded his espandrillas :o)

Feel free to bark your thoughts...but no growling please.
