Anyone got dogs with full on obsessions?
Pippi seems ot have "phasal" (I dont even know if that is a word but I meant sh egoes through phases) obsessions.
At the moment her obsession, is this one particular patch of grass growing up between some pavers and also a certain spot of the neighbours fence.
What happens is, th eminute she is outside (unelss its to wait for dinner) she runs over the neighbours fence and sits in exactly the same spot. All because, ONE time, their dog was out there whinging at like midnight. ONCE. And now she is obsessed with sitting there.
She will come away when told but if she thnks you arent paying attention she goes right back.
If she cant get to the fence, then it is this one piece of grass. She has to chew on it everytime she gets near it.
The fence particularly, will be to the detriment of going to the toilet (the reason she is out there). I have to call her away to go toilet.
She will run round and do other things, but she always ends up back at that same spot.
It's not really a problem because apart from that once, th eother dog is never there, I just find it kinda funny.
Other obsessions she has had, or still sometimes has are, reflections in shop windows (not th emirror though - weird as). If you walk her past a window and she sees herself in it, she goes apeshit. I initially thought it was because she though it was another dog so I would let her go and sniff her reflection, but no, I think she just likes going apeshit in shop windows. And, you only have to walk past it once and it is etched in her memory forever and the next time you go past (even months later) she will know when that window is coming up and pull to get there (she does this for houses with dogs in to after walking past once).
She is obsessed with mice, despite having never ever caught one. We had a mous einfestation for a while at our last house and she saw one and went for it but it went behind soemthing. After that all you had to say was "wheres the mousey" and she owuld go to that spot for like 20 minutes trying to get it. Even now, if we say wheres th emousey, she goes immediately to the same piece of furniture LOL
She chases flies to the point of obsession rather than just snapping at them like other dogs. She fully throws herself round th ehouse after them and will do it until the fly is actually gone. She never stops of her own accord.
She is an obsessive little freak, just seems to move from obsession to obsession and sometimes phasing through each of them....but man shes cute LOL
Anyone else got any obsessors?
