If your a regular...then you know that I have two JRT's (Jack Russell Terrors ermm...Terriers). And that they dominate my world. I admit that fully and without reservation. Take Clarice in the above photo. You don't have to be lucky to get shots like this of her, she ALWAYS looks this alert and adorable. Well except for the unfortunate garbage incident.
They do have some odd behavior though. Clarice has an obsession with textures that are not supposed to be were she finds them. Example. When I was sick I opened up a sleeping bag and added it to the blankets on the bed when I had the chills. Clarice bustled her little butt down in the covers, licked her paw a couple times, then licked the blanket, noticed the zipper track and licked it....her little brain apparently registered that the track was not supposed to be on the blanket so she started to chew on it. I said 'leave it'. Passed back out. Woke up an hour later and the bed was covered in little black plastic nubs that used to be zipper tracks.
Brassiere hooks....same thing. Not that I leave my unmentionables scattered around. But sometimes if I'm in a hurry one might end up draped over the chair in the bedroom. Well my little Clarice-a-mo doesn't waste anytime, she takes the hooks off. And we all know that a bra without hooks is about as worthless as 'tits on a boar hog'.
Her own toys are not immune to this treatment either. Take her squeaky mouse for example. When she initially got it she ran around joyfully squeaking it for about a minute and a half (which is a VERY long time is JRT speak, by the way). Then she settles down to business...notices that there is a little cloth tag on it, off it comes. A tail...it must go too. Ears, eyes, feet, whiskers, nose. Gone, gone, gone! She's left with just a body, holes wear the eyes and nose were and all extremities chewed/pulled off.
Do your dogs (pets in general) have any weird behaviour?
