Looks like the eyes from the Geico commercial. This is to funny. Made me laugh out loud.

My Bobby would circle his LLBean bed with his favorite toy in his mouth many, many times then kind of fluff and scratch until it was just perfect to put his stuffed animal to bed. Then he would lay on the floor next to it. Oh how I miss my Son, he did this routine almost every night and every night we would laugh hysterically........

Lily cleans herself like our cats do...she licks her paws, her back, her chest...wherever her tongue can reach! She also lies on the backs of the couches like the cats. Oh, and she barks at the neighbour's hammock...every day...it hasn't moved in 2 months, but she's still convinced it's coming for us so she MUST bark at it to save us.

Z has plenty:
1. she does not like to be crowded, or cuddled. If you get too near her, she moves away. Only people she adores are allowed to be in her personal space.
2. she freezes when she steps into the apartment from outside. She waits till we have cleaned her 4 paws with wet wipes before she unfreezes and moves on.
3. she does not like tight space, she refuses to walk through narrow passageway, or cluttered space.
4. she does not like things out of place. We have to put all our groceries away quickly when we get home otherwise she will moan and groan listlessly at the bags.
5. she loves clean bedsheets. She will wait and watch as we put the clean sheets onto the bed, and jumps onto the bed the moment we are done.
... and many many more...

Another strange one which Koda has also learned from Z... both dogs must lick a foot (anyone's foot within their reach) right after taking a drink of water... Why??!!

LMFAO... all the posts about the eyeballs are killing me, omg.

When the water thing runs out ...

M2 will knock it down. One will carry the bottom, bowl part and the other will carry the jug part. LOL.

(That's the size we have. We seriously need to get a bigger one... I refill it at LEAST three times a day. It was fine when it was just Mojo, and he was younger...)

lol...

ok lets see

Dusty HAS to help. He brings Bob clothes, washrag ect in the morning and helps me take dirty clothes into laundry room...BUT he has to walk over and show Lightning that he is helping before he will bring it to Bob or the laundry room.

When Jake has something Thunder wants...he comes and pokes me in the side until I tell Jake to share...lol...not that Jake does...but it makes Thunder feel better.

Jake has to lay by my feet....kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, computer....it doesn't matter he is by my feet unless he is outside

When anyone strokes Willow she always puts her head on the ground and her butt in the air before with her tongue hanging out.

When I throw a ball for Diesel she tries to cut him off by running into him.

She yips when she wants her dinner and if I ignore her the yips get quieter until she is laying down making sad little noises as if she will die in the next minute if she doesn't get food!

She follows me into the bathroom in the morning to have her teeth cleaned. Every morning without fail she is sat behind me waiting.
