Hit by a B

Dude…my b just hit me. Lol we were giving him pets and he jumped behind me and before I knew it :thump: his paw smacked me on the side HARD. Well not that hard but hard enough. Lol I was astounded and couldn't stop laughing. I know its not behavior I should support but it was just too funny.

Anyone else ever been slapped by their B?

AH the Basenji punch. I get that if I am not paying enough attention to Zaire. Usually though it is directed at Charlie when they are playing. So funny, they more than any other dogs seem to love to paw while playing. They must all think they are boxers. 🙂

The boxers at my complex actually like punching more than Medjai, but he will beat up on all the other dogs he's interested in playing with. It usually is the labs, who don't know what to do with the tiny little thing swinging at them.

Dude- Jack woke me up that way yesterday! Smack, right on the forehead!

mia does that.. if you keep talking to her or make a noise she doesnt like.. she smacks ya right in the face! or if one of the others growling..she slaps them haha

I guess you could say we have all been B-Slapped ;-P

Keoki hits us when playing or when he wants attention.

He slaps the other dogs in play, or to put them in their place {we do not allow that, but as with many things we do not allow, it happens, LOL}

It cracks us up. Jazzy doesn't do it at all.

LOL - Duke has slapped me in the face more often than I'd like to admit. He's so fast, I never know when he's gonna do it, or I'd grab his paw before he succeeds. (ouch!) LOL!!!! I know he wants to play. I actually think he wants me to look at him, so that's why I never see it coming.

EL D has done that when he wants my attention when we're both on the couch watching TV. Who runs this house anyway?

Lola does it all the time. It means many things:
"Good morning!"
"Good night!"
"Let's play!"
"Stop making noise!"
"Make that noise again!"
Among other things I'm sure….

Dash does that if you blow in his face. We learned that the hard way.

While reading this I heard your Lola voice saying all of it.
Does anyone else talk in funny voices when imitating things their B might say if they could talk? Carrie does, Andrew too in fact. The Lola voice is high pitched and rather sing songy. Love it.

Oh and yeah I definitely got socked in the eye by our darling pup yesterday. So Liz's fault. She got him all riled up…then pow in MY eye.

She-Ra nails us with that one when I'm making a noise she doesn't like or when roughhousing gets too intense.

They really are pretty unique as dogs go, aren't they?

The first time Tyler did this he was much younger and on a "time out punishment" for something he did. (Time out for us was to ignore the behavior, and/or the dog if necessary.)

Tired of being ignored, (and I'm sure he thought no one was watching) he stealthily climbed to the couch arm, then to the couch back, and sat directly behind my daughters head. He then proceeded to do the tap, tap, tap with the paw on the back of her head. Being young and irritable (can you say PMS??) the DD reached back and slapped his paw. Tyler pulled that paw back at the speed of light and b#tch slapped her right up side the head:eek:, sprang off the couch, and ran away. After a moment of stunned silence, we all just burst out laughing.

Now Tyler just uses his b#tch slap on his sister, Kate. When they both do it at the same time, usually standing on their hind legs, we call it a kangaroo boxing match:D .

"Kangaroo boxing match" indeed – even though I only have one basenji, he pulls that stance on me all the time. You just gotta love them. 🙂

Jack pulls that stance on anyone and anything- me, DH, bones, his bed. Anything he has decided he wants to play with. It is usually accompanied by a huge grin. I love it!!!:D

I TOTALLY DO THAT TOO! Beegin sounds high pitched and a bit snippy - almost a UK accent (not that people from the UK are snippy by any means…don't take it that way!) My whole family does that too. We used to have four dogs when I was growing up and all four had different voices and the 2 cats too. My family was heavilly into theatre so that may explain it.

Sahara has pawed my hand if wanting attention, pawed at my face, but smack, never. My cat has smacked me before, is the smack like a cat's? Describe it in more detail please.
