As I’ve mentioned before, I am the (usually) proud owner of a French poodle named Suki.
I recently moved into a new house, and I have noticed some new, odd behavior from Sukita.
First of all, since she has been walking, she has always lifted up her right leg to pee. I thought just boy dogs did this! Am I wrong?
She also does what all dogs do… something my Suegro calls “El Baile del Popo”, in which she sniffs around in about 15 circles which gradually get smaller and smaller before squatting to make number 2.
Lately, some unforeseen turn of events has led her to continue sticking her leg up a good 20 seconds after she finishes peeing.
Basically, she pees for 10 seconds, then just holds the position for another 20 seconds. This just started happening last week. WHY??? Plus, she recently began insisting on waking me up at 5 am every morning to go out. I don’t think she pees at 5 am, though, since when I walk her at 8 am she has to pee in the front yard. Can anyone explain this to me? Hope she’s ok…
