lily can be playing with her toys calmly for ages on her own no bother. chewing the guts out of her calcium (sp?, ) bones then all of a sudden she'll chose a toy run around the room, come back & grab the same toy rag it around drop then run of & do it over & over again. Its really funny watching her...... she looks as though she'll run into something such as the chair or bookcase but she dosent.... like a mini relay for her our living room... :D

My friend calls it "puppy fits". Tucker does it too, he runs at top speed, sometimes I worry he'll crash into things, but he doesn't so I just let him run full out, then he usually goes back to his dog bed, or my lap.

Jolly does this too. The adult dogs look at him curiously, but do not join in.

A puppy's mad half hour we call it. I think it's to burn off a little excess energy. :dogwlk:

Here, it's ya-yas, as in, "Posey's getting her ya-yas out"

Back when I had a bassett hound and a cocker spaniel (16 years ago), they really used to chase each other around and bark and have a grand old time. When they would get going we would call that the "Doggy Olympics".

So that's where that phrase is from! That album predates me by about a decade, and I'm terrible at music knowledge - I had no clue. Now I'm trying to figure out how it landed in my brain...

The Stones Album, I should check this to verify it, I've lost lots of braincells since the 70s ;) ..... okay here it is from Wikipedia

" The live recording Get Yer Ya-Yas Out! (UK #1; US #6) (1970) documented this tour. Considered by famed critic Lester Bangs the best live record ever, the Stones paid their dues to Chuck Berry with renditions of "Little Queenie" and "Carol", staples from their pub days in south London."
