    Default Zoomies??

    Do dogs get the zoomies? My cats have always had the evening zoomies, laps around the house, the wall, over the furniture, over me.

    I have been watching Chelsea and Vivi run laps around the house, this house has a large greatroom backed up to the kitchen with the nook and dining rooms at opposite ends of the kitchen, essentially one big loop that the dogs run through over carpet and wood. 4 and a half laps, half because Chelsea got tired of chasing Vivi waited for her to come around.

    Need to sit with the camera to grab some pics.

    Anyone else see this?

    Our Sophie does it sometimes. Our ShihTzu who died in January did it often, also. We used to call it his 'wild spells.' He seemed to do laps back and forth through the house.

    Always after a bath and sometimes in the evening if it's been too cold or rainy for walks.

    My 3 outdid themselves yesterday with zoomies as they had their baths-I love it, it's so joyful and free. Freckles does the best ones as he leaps anything in the way such as my Golden . Other than baths they aren't on a "schedule" but do "activate" a few times a week .

    Yep, after a bath, Prince used to do it when he was a puppy, it was like something out of the matrix, he would run a figure of 8 lap, starting on the floor then on to the sofa and off again, it was hilarious!!!!

    Oh yea, my two do the zoomies most evenings around 7 or 8pm. And they playfully bark and carry on together- usually with Zoey dragging Jato around by his ear! Little sisters can be soooo annoying.
    They make us laugh so much- our night time entertainment.
