I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Who's your daddy?

Stumpy's might have been some sort of primate


That's what I thought when I looked over and saw her sitting like this.

Tucker said...

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

That is surely a new and difFURent look!

The Heartbeats said...

HILARIOUS!! Lucy sits like that! I prefer the "lounge".

Wyatt said...

Good one Stumpy! Hey, I like that car seat thing you have there. Is that a comfort or safety car seat or both? We have never seen one....

Wyatt and Stanzie

Phyllis said...

Oh that's so funny. I had a dog whose back legs pointed inward when he sat like that.

Stumpy is just so cute :)

Elyse said...

Too funny! She looks like a kangaroo!

Elyse and Riley

Kristine said...

That is so funny! How is that even posssible?

My dog's super flexibility creeps me out all the time. Her hips just should not bend that way...

Jan said...

A transgenically modified dog. We love it.

Barbara said...

Oh my, that is quite the position! Looks like a cramp may be happening soon!

Nubbin' Tails said...

Oh that's funny. I bet it keeps you from falling over when mom turns the corner though!

Wags!

Mr. Nubbin'

Far out, Stumpy!

OMD, that is just hysterical. Don't think we have ever seen a pup do that before. Great photo catch.

Mayzie, I tried REALLY hard not to laugh at her. "Tried" being the operative word.

Brenda, go ahead, you can say it. I won't tell her...

Tucker, her legs aren't crossed?

Khyra, different for sure!

Heartbeats, maybe Lucy and Stumpy share the same primate father? Lounging HAS to be more comfortable!

Wyatt, You think she did it just to make me laugh? She's good at that!

Phyllis, I need a visual!

Elyse...Well, she is Australian, a kangaroo makes more sense!

Krisitne, If I hadn't taken the picture I don't know if I wouldhave believed it, later!

Jan, That could be it! maybe she's bionic, too!

Barbara, I'm thinking cramps might have made her sit like that!

Boomer? What is it, exactlly, that you're trying to say about my driving skillz?

Stella, Far out describes it perfectly!

OP Pack, Hopefully we'll never see it again!

Wizz, I had to google "platyrrhine" And I agree!

Heehee! strange.....

Roo said...

BOL! That's quite the pose :)

Waggin at ya,

K9friend said...

Love it! She looks almost Zen-like as she chants her mantra: "I will fit in this spot...I will fit in this spot...I will fit in this spot."

PS Thanks for the Berner update. It's great to see him living so happily in his new home!

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

K9K, very strange, isn't it?

Roo, she just rocks it doesn't she?

K9friend, I didn't think Zen when I noticed her pose, but now that you mention it. I'm thrilled with the Berner update, too!

bbes tribe said...

WOW! Stumpy is very flexible - has she been practicing Yoga moves? Good catch on the pic!

Deborah said...

Next we need a picture of Stumpy doing "downward dog" because surely she has been doing doggy yoga!

Hi, we agree with Elyse, she looks like a kangaroo!! She looks deep with meditation, probably wondering how she going to get out of this position!!

oh, by the way, Nice to meet you.

Mango said...

Well, this is quite a mystery. I never saw a dog sit like that before. Who knows, maybe she will start grooming you. That would be a bonus, right?

Slobbers,
Mango

Can you hear us laughing here in Georgia?

Hey Stumpy
Don't let your momma call you an ape. Oh wait I am totally bananas over you.

dogsmom said...

I have to agree- she is showing her Aussie side, but not the shepherd type of Aussie

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Stumpy come on over we are sure Callie will share her pre-wash job..

The Thundering Herd said...

Stumpy = we thought some of The Herd sat creatively, but that is totally new.

Terrorzinhos said...

That's really strange!
But it's cute too!

Mango said...

Lump of coal? No way? Not the wee little Stumper. You are a perfect angel, totally. I will vouch for you.

Slobbers,
Mango

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Callie does do drive byes on Dad when he is trying to sleep late on the weekends. She thinks if she is up everyone else should be too..
