Day 114 - Goofy Dog!

Our Dog, Mocha, is Weird.

It seems that, on hard wood floors, she can only turn right, if she walks backwards.

It's really quite strange.

We are not sure why she does this.  But my husband and I do have a few thoughts.

Mocha (10 year old chocolate lab) is starting to show her age.  Sometimes, when she is staring, randomly, off into space, I wonder if she is "losing it" a bit.  And, maybe backward right turning is a result of her being a wee-bit wackado. Another theory is that her previous two ACL surgeries are causing her a bit of pain.  And, for some reason, a leg hurts less when she turns right backwards.

Regardless of the reason, it's really odd to see a big chocolate lab backing into a room.  Especially because she walks down the hall forward, stops, and then backs herself around the corner.

Soon she might even start beeping when she puts herself in reverse!

What goofy quirks do your pets have?

  1. THAT... is a great menatal image! What a great dog to have the insight to entertain the family after 10yrs with you.

    Our dog likes to try and give you a "hug" with her front paws/legs as if they were arms and she is greeting you!
