    Ty's are just the run of the mill: wallowing in mud or stinky water whilst we are out and about (which he is an expert in locating!) yet refuses to set so much as a toe outside if it is even spitting :rolleyes:
    He also eats fox poo and sampled a snail shell the other day too

    Lottie seems to have a footwear fettish and goes around the house collecting as many stray socks, shoes or slippers as she can find and puts them all in a pile behind the armchair like a magpie-she doesnt do anything with them really, an occassional nibble but thats as far as it goes.
    She has also taken to emptying the wash basket and stashing the treasures she collects from there. I spent 2 days looking for my favorite trousers and nagging at the wife for them only to then spot the little monkey taking a sock under the bed and there were my trousers!!!!! (along with several other household items!)
    She isnt bored I dont think-they have so many kongs, buster cubes and stuff we could open a pet shop with all the toys they have and they get rotated too.

    Am I the only one with weird dogs :eek:ut: surely not!

    Candy loves poo and stinky water.

    Sky hasn't really developed any, but when we're playing she doesn't growl she makes a sort of whine noise to tell you she's getting peed off - then she starts boxing you, and she likes to hide her face with her paws.

    Oh so many, where do i start!

    Mine have OCD - they lick everything, thin air, carpet, floors we call them lizard tongue

    They lick my feet obsessively, they love to get right between the toes. No point trying to stop them, one on each foot is only fair!!!

    They eat grass like cows, they will go and graze - does them no harm except it can cause dangly poos (if you know what i mean!)

    They have to put chews and biscuits onto a foot to eat....use it like a table!

    :eek:ut:

    Bailey will wak round a puddle so he doesn't get his feet wet and yet plays in the sea everyday.

    If he's done something naughty, like lifted something he shouldn't have, he comes to you to show you he's got it! LOL!

    He's a licker as well, loves to lick my feet, poor soul! :D

    Buster loves plastic bags especially black ones and no he doesn't play with them suffocation risk and everything we don't let him. Silas hates grass he won't walk on it without a lot of persuasion and lying on it is beyond cruel in his mind. Sophie will listen to children even over us and is always looking for them to play with.

    My Weim absolutely loves feet he will lick them for ages but oddly he is not particularly a licky kind of dog he prefers to sniff you real close then sneeze delightfully snotty droplets at you.

    My Dobe is another story she really relishes in stuffing as much of her bedding into her mouth as she can fit then kinda just sucks it like a giant dummy and falls asleep. She also falls asleep standing up in front of the fire which is quite amusing, even after toppling over a couple of times she still wont lie down in case a bit of heat misses her!

    Mouthing the cats legs so it cant walk, biting their beds, the Vizslas.
    The French bulldog makes a big deal out of having a drink, has to lean right over to the other side and takes about 5 mins to drink.
