That crash, those claws, I hear them everyday. Dogs just never seem to learn that racing over hardwood floors isn’t the same as the luscious lawn in the back. And that wall that’s been there for however many years, yeah, it’s not going to move out of the way when you decide to smack your head into it! Dog’s are just designed to be awkward klutzes I believe. Those huge legs, that big clunky head, and that long tail that has enough force to knock a person over! It’s a disaster waiting to happen.
Fortunately they make for good stories, especially when you have people that decide to put turtle wax at the bottom of the stairs! There’s been so many instances where the dogs have been extremely excited to go outside or have her food, and they fly down the stairs & crash into the floor or sometimes the front door! You can hear the whole house burst into laughing afterward. The most enjoyable moment for me is when they finally remember to take a slightly slower pace, and my dog does one of those Scooby Doo run-in-place scenes!
Thud. Thud. Thud. Are dogs really not aware of their tails or even their heads? It seems like every time the dog is walking around the house, she runs into walls, nearly misses corners, and smacks her tail on every surface possible! Maybe it’s her way of getting attention, and of course she get’s it, except in the form of laughter! Even their feet are bad. There are times when we run on the trails & she will just walk straight off! She’s lucky that I have her on leash or we would’ve had to found some way to navigate down the trail-side on more than one occasion… It makes me wonder how they survive in the wild, but that must be one of the reasons they stay in packs! A pack wouldn’t work well with my dog though… She tends to run better backwards rather than forwards… It’s a weird site because she jumps side to side as she does it as well!
What’s your dogs clumsiest moment?
