Spinning

Normally Arwen literally levitates, spins in the air. It was nearly dark and she just did spins (at about 33 secs into video) on ground but I find it so bizarre. When I get a daylight levitating one I'll post.

And here is Cara showing how she literally runs circles around Arwen

Debra, your dogs are lovely. And I await the levitation video. Did Arwin learn the levitation trick from Criss Angel?

LOL I don't know where but it's pretty amazing

oooohh, Zest! does that, but I put hers on command. She does "go right" and does "go left". Many times she'll get all 4 feet off the ground when she's doing her spins.

How cute! Are Arwen's ears (almost) upright? They are beautiful together.:)

Arwen's ears (she is red) have been rigidly up from the time we got her as a puppy. Cara's ear.. omg I have to video tape them. They are like cartoon creature's antennae. She sometimes (not often) has both straight. Other times one up, the other over, and she can ALTERNATE one up then the other. Most of the time, they are not up. At 9 mos, I doubt it will ever happen. They aren't buttery soft like when I got her, but still very unbasenji soft.

So, Cara is the Wimauma girl? It didn't hit me that she's only 9 months old~ because she does tower over Arwen… lol. How is her disposition? They look so cute together.

Topper did those spins, we call them "whirlygigs", never got video but have one series of stills that sort of capture it. It is funny to see, thanks for sharing.

Oh wow Anne, so Arwen isn't alone! 🙂 Good to know. When I get her in the air I'll post it.

Yes she is one of the Florida pack. Her mom had the litter at the shelter because they didnt' realize how far along, but quickly got them to Pam's house.

Yep, 9 mo old GIANT.

Disposition is to die for. She is all I could ever want, utterly playful, wild and utterly devoted and bonded. She stands on her back legs, puts her legs on my shoulders and wants to be held and rocked. She has to be touching me 90 percent of the time at night (occasionally she curls with Arwen). I absolutely adore her. She is very very mouthy, but has soft mouth. Often she sits with my arm in her mouth rubbing with her tongue. Grosses the daughter out but I don't mind.

Tenji does that spin too…usually when he's playing with bigger dogs and needs to get away...he'll usually shift his weight onto one paw and then pivot on it and spin under the bigger dogs.

That was cool!!! LOL!

Our Sally, poor thing, was never really much for playing. I think someone 'trained' it out of her or something 😞

Anyway, when she did try to play, she made some pretty funny little moves!

Love seeing your Arwen…although it's hard for me to hear you tell me go play with my baby. LOL

LOL you can come play with baby Cara, she'll have TWO Arwens at her beck and call.
