My 1 year and 3 month old King Sheperd/Doberman cross talks when I put his harness on. He grumble's and groans the entire time until I open the door. Also my Husky/Lab cross will talk back when you give her heck and she will fight to have the last word. And lastly, my Beagle/Shelty with roll over....but only on grass or a soft surface.
One of my Bostons, has a thing about hands. She will lay down and if you take your hands and place them in front of her and open and close your fingers as you move them towards her, she will go crazy...it's hilarious!
Doesn't seem to bother the other 4 thou...go figure!
Don't worry about tomorrow; it has never happened before.
My Mastiff, Stella, will nibble my nose with her front teeth, ever so gently. She will do it for anyone she likes, that will let her. I love it To me, it is a great sign of affection! I am upset by how many people don't like her drool!! It is mostly just water, am I right? She is like a hamster, and stores stuff in her jowls! I have found bits of sticks, bits of food she is saving for later, torn up paper and an ear plug in there!! She sits, stays, downs, rolls over and gives her paw too. But best of all, her nose nibbles!

Oh boy. Let's see. There's a yorkie that smiles, dances, taps people on the shoulder when he wants something and PETS other dogs (that he likes). He seriously pets them like he's a person but they’re the dog. The brindle and white and the brindle (who is older now than in the pic) girls both give 5 up high AND down low. Li, the pied likes to ‘slap’ everyone but me (in the face) when she believes she is not the focus of attention as she should be. Daddy thinks it’s cute and allows it, I do not. She also is fascinated by anything with other dogs on t.v., but ONLY other dogs. Raven (the brindle) is an expert at excavation as proved by several holes in her bedroom wall. I finally was able to outsmart her by 'painting' the bottom of the walls in her room with dish soap. And Bo, he's the fawn, he knows the difference between his toys(which must be replaced almost weekly), he has tried to bribe us with those same toys AND they magically appear near us if we have 'owies' so we figure that's supposed to make us feel better, he boxes (if you ball your fists and ask if he wants to box he stands up on his hind legs and starts swinging), and he will ‘help’ throw things away by bringing them to the trash can and 'handing' them to me (no way I'm about to teach him to put things in on his own, LOL, as it can easily end up reversed). He ‘imitates’ his daddy during play time (if daddy smacks him he smacks daddy, if daddy “bites” him he bites daddy in the exact same way except maybe rougher). There are times I know he'd make a good 'frisbee' dog as I've seen him do a flip or two while catching something, but that's NOT good for his back so we try to avoid that. On occasion he plays out some scenes from Turner and Hooch VERY well (drool). And the whole bulldog brigade can imitate bulldozers very well. And they seem to have magic pockets somewhere that enable then to carry more toys around than seems possible, so they’re magicians. They also all use one toy (tire) to stabilize others for better chewing enjoyment (they wedge it in there so there are fewer interruptions apparently). They also excel at clearing a room on occasion (gas). Those are a few of the more interesting things. Life with Frenchie’s can certainly keep you on your toes ……………….
