View Full Version : Crazy rolling?! A Cavalier dance?

Ok, since she was about 3.5 months old, (since I rescued her) Ruby has had a very silly and crazy morning routine. I was wondering, is this a Cavalier thing, or a "Ruby has the crazies" thing?!
Here's what happens: We get up, I help her onto the floor, (yes, she sleeps with me! I'm bad!) she stretches the front legs, then the rear. She sashays over to the middle of the room, and drops! On her back (like when a dog rolls in something stinky!) snorting, wagging and it appears, cleaning her face/eyes!
She's very happy, it's such a great way to wake up! She also does this occasionally after a meal...
Oh, also, she is not in any type of pain! She hops around wagging and snorting afterwards. :)
So...anyone else have the pleasure of the "morning crazies"? :lol:

Yes we do! Mika does almost the exact same thing when she gets up on her own. Most mornings though, she stays in bed until I'm done my shower. Then she stays in bed for a long belly rub (the only time she'll take a belly rub) until we go and wake my son. But on the mornings she gets up by herself, it's the same routine - bow, stretch, then roll around doing the peek-a-boo thing with her paws and eyes.

Roxy does this too. She gets up, goes out, then comes into the kitchen and rolls around on her beanbag. She also does the face rubbing thing. I think its just like her morning stretch :)

Both mine do that too and the other Teena was rolling around on the bed (she loves the duve) and fell right off the bed. I think this is normal (happy) dog behaviour.

Not a cavalier thing, just a dog thing. Common across all dogs. :)

Molly does it too! she thinks wiping her mucky chops on me is good fun too! Cavaliers are not common!
