Monday Mischief January 23

Elka has a game that she plays.

When she gets to the top of the stairs, she dances around on the landing, "defending" it. She spins, she bows, she paws, she shakes her head around. It's a good deal of fun! I've tried to capture accurate photos of it, but the camera makes her a little shy. Still, there are some, and you might get the gist. Enjoy!

All done!

My Brown Newfies


  1. Do all Dobies dance with their entire bodies? I know Justus is a Dobie/Hound mix but when I bring out a leash, he looks like these photos of Elka! He will sit and let me attach the leash but he is wired to go :). HA. Dance away, Elka!

  2. I can't believe I just found your blog! I'm so excited to catch up, it sounds like we are basically the same person. Yay!

  3. @Roberta I think they might! When she gets into full mood, she wags herself so hard that she bends practically in half, with tail wagging independantly, ears airplaned, and frequently a toy in her mouth that she Vader breathes around.

    @Pit Bulls and Patience Are we? That's really cool....Looks like we each have a blog to catch up on!

  4. Sounds like a 'Happy Dance' to me!

    Maybe we can get a video of her special dance? :)

    Have fun buddy,

  10. @just ramblin' A blog award! And for my pictures! I really didn't expect that to happen, thanks so much!

    We do have a lot of fun with the hoodie, and with the happy dance! I did have a video of it from when she was a puppy but, alas, it was lost when I switched cell phones.

  11. Love this! I know this dance well...Arie does it strangely enough when I'm doing laundry. When I'm carrying a laundry basket, she start "dancing" around me and defending the next space, but still backs up as I walk to where I need to go. I love Elka's sweatshirt! So cute!
