I love my dog. She has many names. (Beliwdebeast, bear, wubbles, etc.) Her real name is Lucy. But she has some strange quirks. She's totally deaf now, which is not uncommon in Cavalier King Charles Spaniel dogs her age. But that's not what makes her quirky.
If we put food in her bowl, she will stand next to her bowl and bark, until we pour some of the food from the bowl on the floor and send a few pieces shooting in her general direction so that she can catch them and eat them. I guess it's predatory instincts. The thing is that she is perfectly capable of eating out of her bowl. She does so when she is particularly hungry, and whenever we put something special in her bowl. But whenever there is nothing special in her bowl, and she is just regularly hungry, she expects us to scatter her food on the floor and flick a few pieces in her direction so she can hunt them down.
She also barks at horses (any four legged animal really, but especially horses) on our TV. We're fairly sure that this is because, in her mind, horses are smaller than she is (because they are smaller on TV) and that if she ever met a real horse, she would hide.
She has several other amusing quirks (and she demonstrates an unusual intelligence as well) and I'll share these with y'all later.
What quirks do your pets have? Any pets are fine. Cats, dogs, turtles, pigs, etc.
