A lot of dogs are motivated by food. I think bigger dogs are even more motivated by food. And Kostas? He lives to eat. Dog food, people food, dog treats, sticks, and the occasional pizza crust found on the sidewalk! He’s also a very good kitchen helper – he’s the pre-wash cycle.
I get a kick out of the dogs’ quirks – Tucker doesn’t have many quirks – he sticks to being a top-notch Lab. The only thing I can think of is that he always has to walk on the left when he and Kostas are lined up. They self-correct whenever leashes get twisted or they get out of order.
Kostas’ newest quirk is that he has turned into a foodie – if a dog can be considered a foodie. It’s taking Kostas longer and longer to finish his meals. A couple of weeks ago he took to laying down by his bowl and ‘savoring’ each bite of kibble. His newest quirk–only eating if he is laying down on his dog bed with his food bowl.
I can’t tell if he just wants to be comfortable, he gets tired eating, or it’s too ‘strenuous’ to have to bend down to reach the bowl. I think it has something to do with wanting to keep Tucker away from his food.
What is your pet’s most unique ‘quirk’?
