7 things about me

Well, I've been tagged a long time ago by Huskee but I never got around to doing the tag coz... wel... there's nothing much that others don't know about me.

So after days of taxing my brain, here's my list:

1) I seldom fart. That's true! I almost never fart. My M never appreciates this about me until the arrival of Helios, who farts.... a LOT.

2) I fight. Sometimes, rarely. The humans call me the 'Silent Killer', coz I'm usually so placid, but when I do fight, I draw blood sometimes, although I do try to give in to smaller or younger dogs by scaring them instead. Note: I only fight when provoked, and it takes a lot to provoke me.

3) I like to rubba my back on the grass. My M hates that, especially after a recent bath, so she'll stop me from rubba-ing, BUT, if I am at play and rubba-ing, she lets me get away with it. So I flip myself over every chance I get, so sometimes, I'm flipping over even before the other dog gets to me.

Sometimes I forget that the other dog has gone away and I'll still be rubba-ing my back.

Oh dear, I've been attacked! I'm FLIPPING.....

4) Speaking of rubba, I prefer butt scratches rather than head scratches. Sometimes I will subtly move my butt closer to the human's hands when they are trying to scratch my head

5) As much as I'm a greed, I will take raw vegetables only if they're coated with a little 'meat sauce'.

6) I like to 'de-spike' spikey rubber balls. But I'm usually not successful.

7) I don't mind being humped by friends, or smaller dogs, or females. Big strange male dogs become friends after I play with them 3-4 times, so they will go into the 'allowed to hump' category. Other than that, I show my displeasure.

And as a bonus, one thing you won't know about Helios.

Sometimes he wags his tail even when asleep. You will hear his tail go thumping on the floor, but he'll be asleep.

I don't think I will be tagging anyone else, since most have already been tagged.

I LOOVE butt scratching too, it makes me go all crazy eyed and I start licking the air. I wish I could say I don't fart a lot, but I do. a LOT.

Hi Herbie,
Hehehe.. I am amazed that u don't fart a lot whilst Helios is just the opposite! Next time u can blame your farts on him cos no one will suspect!
My mom is amazed that you'd even be 'provoked' to fight cos she thinks that you are the sweetest and most docile doggy ever.. *rolls eyes*
