Does your Golden have a "Quirk"

1. Nygel likes to tear paper up in tiny, tiny, tiny pieces
2. Razz jumps on the screen patio door & I CANNOT cure him
3. May ALWAYS throws her tennis ball into my bath - not once but continually.

What are your golden(s) quirk(s)?

(You can vote more than once for those of us who have more than one golden. Mine all have quirks so I just used one vote!)

He loves to go for walks through the bush carrying logs and swimming, please. We'll miss you, Sweet Ollie - forever in our memories.

Brady will take a toy or stuffed animal in his mouth, stretch out fully frog legged on the ground, and just suck on it, eyes closed. Almost like meditating. He will do this for about 20 minutes straight. Not sure if he is calming his nerves or what, but it seems to relax him.

When Bailey greets you at the door she is extremely vocal and has a lot to say. It's awesome! I love my talking doggie.

Bailey will also eat/tear up paper. I have to make sure I keep the kids homework in a SAFE place! She's already eaten one of my 6 year old's homework sheets. The kitchen table is not a safe place.

Jester does this too. He also has "nursed" his bed since he was a pup. He actually massages the bed with his front paws (like cats "makin' biscuits" ) and then sucks on his bed until it's wet and gross! He almost goes into a trance and seems to find it very comforting...definitely a quirky guy!

I suspect it's so the victim can't identify the perpetrator?

It's a pretty big assortment, actually, different brands. There's the slight possibility that I pick the ones with these eyeballs to further her addiction....lol
