One of the weirdest things he does is sneeze. And no, sneezing isn't exactly a weird behavior, but it is the way that Gibson does it. I blogged about this a lonnnng time ago, saying it was a weird quirk of his. Sure, he sneezes when he needs to sneeze (something gets up his nose, allergies, etc.), but he also sneezes when he a. is frustrated and b. wants attention. You could catch him doing it a few times in the Gibson Talking video if you wanted to see him in action. If he wants something really bad... say, a treat.. and I'm making him do tricks in order to get it, he sneezes. Whenever he whines about something, he also sneezes. It's weird. I asked my vet about it, and apparently lots of dogs do it..which is also weird.. haha
Which brings me to today...
So, every morning after I get ready I go down and make myself a latte to take to work (powdered, I'm not that fancy). During this time, Gibson gets really antsy for me to get his kong filled w/frozen banana out of the freezer. This morning, he was being a real jerk about it and grumbling and growling at me to get it. So, I decided to be a jerk back to him and repeat all the sounds he was making. He'd grumble, I'd grumble. He'd growl, I'd growl. He'd woof, I'd woof. Then, he sneezed. So, I sneezed. So, he sneezed again... and I sneezed again... and so on for about 6 times in a row until I couldn't take it anymore w/o laughing! It was the most hilarious thing and just proves that he can make himself sneeze on command.
What a weirdo :)
