Odd behaviour

So my puppie's new favourite thing is to push herself between my legs, particuarly whilst walking along the street!

She's also enjoying shoving her backside in my face when she wants to play...

So, what weird behaviour does your puppy have?!

Gosh, had a girl that did both behaviors also. She also would bite your feet as you walked, which was really awkward when she was between your legs. When she was feeling really goofy, she would walk up behind people and goose them with her nose. Boy that got some notice.
Currently none of our goldens have unique behaviors, I miss the old girl with spunk.

Bentley's favorite thing to do is get on my lap and act like he's going to nuzzle my neck but then he shoves his tongue in my ear I hate it and we're working on him but so far he does it every chance he gets.

I think I held my puppy too much when she was little. If I have my computer on my lap, she will slide in between my arms and interrupt me. I am always putting stuff down so she can snuggle. I try hard to discourage it but it is so nice to be snuggled by a golden!!
Of course she has to have some stinky wet toy in her mouth at all times too!

Oh my what doesn't Chester do that's odd

1) when he takes a nap outside of his crate and something wakes him up he will get up and his tail will start wagging as if he hasn't seen me for a long time and then give me loads of kisses and go right back to sleep. This repeats again in another 15-20 minutes or if he hears something he's a very light sleeper.

2) he has to constantly be on top of me. If I'm playing a game on the x box or sitting on the floor he has to be ontop of me. Sometimes with a bully stick in his mouth mouth I hate it lol. I'm trying to correct him but I don't think he's getting it.

3) this isn't too odd but Ive never seen a dog who actually has to sleep on his owners feet. Chester has to do this to my feet in order to sleep.

Ah yes the sleeping on the feet. Isla's done this a few times but she likes her own space to sleep. He obviously doesn't like the idea of you getting up and going somewhere without him knowng!

Shadow does this - has to sleep on my boyfriend's feet.

He also head butts the trashcan to show his impatience while we're preparing his food.

Love these descriptions of the quirky behaviours Asia will present her rear end when she wants a scratch and when I am standing she will sometimes push between my legs from the front and then stand there in between waiting for a good butt rub which of course she gets. I think it's cute despite knowing I shouldn't give in to her demands haha.
