propping himself up in a corner...

Toby has started a new, kind if quirky little behaviour. He likes to sit upright with his bum squished into a corner - as if he is getting some help holding himself up. He is perfectly agile and strong in all other ways (a 3 month old lab/rott mix with tons of energy!). He'll do it when we're hanging out in the kitchen, or even right now in my office, as he works a chew toy in his mouth.

I'm not concerned, I just find it somewhat bizarre. Has anyone else seen this?

hmmm...I wonder if he has found a way to stop slipping on the floors? :crazy:

Awww, I love when puppies do that! I also like when they sit and their two back legs are sticking out front with the front paws in between. They just look so relaxed n comfy.

Sam dows the same in my livingroom

except he gets bored after awhile and slinks down and goes to sleep, he seems to prefer hanging out in corners when hes not interacting with the family

he does that too (sitting with his back legs stuck out forwards)!

So I guess this is normal puppy stuff - not as odd as I thought!

I know! I am going to have to wear the camera around myneck 24/7 to catch him! Everytime I go for the camera he follows me and loses the pose. I'll post one when I catch one! ;)
