Standing Up

Anyone ever see their basset stand up like this? The video link I posted is of Maggie doing it a couple of years ago. I haven't been able to snap a picture or video in time lately. She does this allllllll the time. Excuse the excitement in my voice in the video... that was the first time I had ever seen her do it. :)

Also, here's a picture of her doing it around the same time I took the video. Like I said, she does it all the time but I can never get my phone in time to snap a pic before she hears me and sits back down. haha

Oh I wish PB would do that! They kinda look like humans. She stands on her hind legs though every morning to greet me. Probably because she gets in trouble for putting her paws on the bed. So now she just stands up on her hind legs & pirouettes in the middle of the room. "Ooh excitement my human is getting up!!" It's pretty much like a standing ovation every morning!
Our westies & weiner dogs we had growing up did this all the time, but bassets are much more impressive. Any day now Buttercup... I'm waiting!!
