My friend Dixie asked a great question the other day! She wanted to know if "Siberians lie with their legs straight out behind them with feet turned up?" Mom said her beagles used to lay down like that all the time, so I'll bet that's why Dixie asked! The answer to her question is - well, I sure do!
Here I am a couple of Christmases ago, waiting for Santa. See my back legs? Ha roo! That's what we call my Froggie Doggie Pose!
There's apparently an old mushers' tale that this is a sign of good joint health. Seeing as how I've never pulled a sled, I'm not sure - but my joints are nice and healthy - so they could be on to something!
Here is another view. In this picture, I'm helping Mom change the mattress bed-skirt.
Remember, I'm a member of the Working Breed Group! I may not pull those sleds, but I pitch in around the house as best I can!
Oh... remember my Zen of Zim post? That second-to-the-last pose is a Froggie Doggie. It's just that my legs get sorta lost in the comforter. I can even Froggie Doggie it up on the carrier - pictures 3 and 4 on our Bunk Beds for the Redheads post showcase it very nicely!
Amber doesn't lay like this. I'm not sure why. She has nice, healthy hips. Dave and Storm do have some joint issues - and neither of them are Froggie Doggie posers. So who knows? Here I am with Dave, showing him how to do it, in case he wants to try.
So... how about the rest of you? Do you do the Froggie Doggie?
Play bows and thanks for the question, Dixie!
