    Too cute. She reminds me of Meadow, especially the chasing the tail part. She's persistent, all right! MOM! Gotta GO !!!

    Well we were upstairs (it’s a 2 story house) and she’s learnt that she has to bark at me. Unfortunately she also barks at me when I blow dry my hair...the minute I turn it on! You can’t say that’s for a pee, and if I ignore her when I’m drying it she stands on her hind legs and paws my butt!!! She’s quite the brat lol.

    Coop also does the tail chase if he needs to go and we are trying to hold him off a bit! lol. He runs to the door does the tail chase and runs back and gives you a stare.....like what the heck don’t you understand Sheltie speak? lol

    Yes, with Blueberry too it’s out of frustration the tail chase. Like I gotta go but since your making me wait I’ll chase my tail! Lol

    Although Willow doesn't chase her tail she does put her paws on my lap. She stares and if I don't react to let her out, she barks. Willow barks at my wife's use of the blow dryer too.

    Funny thing about the hair dryer, when Meadow was about 4 months old she jumped into a friend's small fish pond (boy was that a surprise to both of us!) I was right there and fished her out, but it was a chilly day so borrowed a towel and took her straight home for a bath. She was shivering like crazy. I had to use the hair dryer on her to get her warm and dry-ish, and to my surprise, she liked it! She didn't react to the sound.

    Now when I blow dry my hair she comes running into the bathroom and watches me, but no barking! :yes:

    I tried the blow dryer on Brodie once, he hated it, acted like I was punishing him. But when I bathe him, his back hair parts like Alfalfa from Little Rascals unless I either come it until dry or blow dry it.

    Deacon - who thinks every dog except our 2 is a devil trying to eat him alive, who was afraid to walk by my neighbors white fence (EGADS!!!) until he found out there are two abs crazy Aussie on the opposite side of the street - will run to hubby when he pulls the leaf blower out and stand there with his face in it. He's was also totally un-fizzed when I ran an air compressor in the kitchen, just walked up to it nonchalantly like 'hey, what is this noisy thing? - I look good next to it!'.

    I think with Deacon it is social awkwardness. When he isn't quite sure what to do, he will chase his tail.

    She is your Queen and you are her Pawn! I showed her videos to hubby and he asked when are we going to get a female? LOL! 3 is enough, I don't need 4!!!!
