that’s just not right

The new dog (Sierra) seems to be fitting in well.  She’s looking up to the older dog (Darwin) and learning all sorts of new things.  The cutest is something we call “kicky foot,” where she’ll periodically stretch all of her legs by kicking them back one at a time.

The one I didn’t expect to see was her lifting her leg to pee.  I’ve never seen a female dog do that before.  Dog owners – is that normal?  or is it (as we suspect), just not right?

For Late Intermediates And Advanced The Legs/Push/Pull WorkoutHere you train your legs (thighs and calves) one day, your pushing muscles (chest, shoulders and triceps) on your next session, and your pulling muscles (back and biceps) on your third session. With this program you can either train three days per week (so each body part is being trained just once per week), or four days per week, alternating the workouts. The later method will give you faster progress as you’ll be training each body part more often, yet due to the structure of the workouts you’ll still have plenty of time for recovery.Every loud, garish gimmick borrowed from US sports has been met with as much indifference or hostility as approval by footy fans cheap football jerseys here.

They kind of just threw it all in there.

    that’s normal. i’ve seen female dogs and male dogs at the shelter in all sorts of weird peeing (and pooping) positions, and there are times when they seem to be switching gears. dunno why they do it but it doesn’t bother them, so… 🙂 she might just have had a male dog as a model for peeing. or she likes to have her pee up as high as possible as if to announce “new girl in the neighborhood! do not mess around!” (ask seth to tell you the story of a basenji who jumped backwards at a tree while peeing, thus ensuring his urine was aimed at a great height).

    the only time you might want to worry is if she pees a lot (as opposed to marking, which is just blind peeing). that’s a sign of urinary tract infection. you might also want to make sure that her anal glands and tummy are normal and that her lifting up the leg isn’t just a reaction to something uncomfortable.

    that’s helpful. thanks!

    the reason we thought it was odd is: a) we’ve not owned enough dogs to have seen that before; and b) she didn’t start doing it until several weeks after she got here
