Funny Habits

Post by Katlin » Sun Mar 17, 2013 9:21 pm

I thought it would be interesting for everyone to post one funny thing their tamaskan does that you think is unusual and funny. Here is Wylie's:

He'll be walking towards me and will walk so he's right between my legs with his head facing my back and will stop. He'll wag his tail so I wil scratch his butt (or upper thighs), he'll then turn his head and curve around my leg like a cat so he can chew on the back of my leg. "You scratch my back, I'll scratch yours". It's super funny, I'm trying to get a video of it.

Ulric will do this as well, except for the chewing on the back of my leg part.
Zelda on the other hand, when I scratch her belly in the right place will nibble in my arm, or if she can't real each my arm then she will nibble her own.

Not sure how unusual this is.... But Roma sleeps next to my bed, and on occasion she will have to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. Her way of waking me up is to gently paw the side of my mattress or my shoulder. Then I wake up to her staring in my face and breathing on me. That's her saying "I gotta go". She will also walk behind me and push me with her nose towards the door.

Sølve has done that through the leg thing a lot too..
I usually petted and hugged her then :)

It's been a while since last now though :(

That's weird.

Cindy also does the through the leg thing like a cat too. She doesn't do it to everyone but it's her way of showing affection. If you ask her for a cuddle that's what she does. I had to explain to my father-in-law why she was seemingly trying to knock him over by batting her head between his knees.

Huh, Kumho does the same thing. Never knew it was that common.

Sam has many funny habits...

The one that comes to mind first is, when i say "sit" and he is close enough to the sofa he will shuffle back and sit his bum on the sofa with his back feet hanging and his front feet on the floor... It was the weirdest thing the first time he did it, i had to double check with my bf to see if he saw the same thing i did...

There’s a battle between two wolves inside us all.
One is Evil. It’s anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.
The other is Good. It’s joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness and truth.

The wolf that wins? The one you feed!

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity... I'm not sure about the former.

Victor tends to also "half-sit" on things. He'll scoot his butt back and sit it, but not his front legs.

His funniest habit is definitely his "wake me up" routine. He'll always nose my face, and if I put my hand over it and roll over he'll gently pull my hand away or roll me back over with his paws and then stare at me smiling until I say I'm up.
