Fetch does not work this way

Riggs if you bring me a stuffed animal and I throw it and then you go get it you need to bring it back to me and let go so I can toss it again.  Riggs understands the concept of fetch just not the concept of letting go of it when he brings it back.  Instead he turns a game of fetch into a game of tug of war.  Playing tug of war with stuffed animals will not make them last very long but then again maybe you are wanting to play tug of war with them on purpose so you can try to get to the stuffing inside of them.

So passive for the first 15 seconds

Anytime Riggs meets a new dog for the first time, he ducks his head down in a very passive stance.  After about 15 seconds and he knows he is not going to be eaten by the other doggie then his tail will start wagging and he will zig zag back and forth wanting the dog to chase him.

He has been doing this at the park as well.  He is always trying to instigate another dog to chase him.  Of course if one of the other dogs does start chasing him he will run to Mama sitting on the park bench and jump up into her lap.  So Riggs you want the dog to chase you but then when he/she does you go running for cover by Mama?   That is not how it works bud.

Phantom peeing

Riggs has a little friend in the neighborhood named Tucker.  Tucker is a male yorkie.  Riggs must have paid attention to how Tucker stands to pee and now is trying to copy him.  “Hey Mama & Dada check me out.  I pee like a big boy now.”  Obviously if you have been following this blog for awhile now then you know that Riggs does not do anything normal and this new peeing stance is no different.

Riggs now goes up to every pole, bush, plant, palm tree, whatever is around lifts his leg and pees......nothing.  That is right folks.  He does the position but does not actually pee.  He just goes through the neighborhood and does fake drive by pee stances on everything.  When he is actually ready to pee then he goes back into his normal weird squat with one leg sticking up and the other balancing all his weight.

Congratulations on making yourself even more odd than you already are silly.
