Hi all, I'm beginning to think our girl Luna is, in fact, loony.
For about two weeks now, when she's outside in the backyard with my daughter, she does this almost-crazed running around in a large circle. Her ears are up, her nose is pointed toward the ground, and she's very intent, like she's herding something or chasing something BUT THERE IS NOTHING THERE. ?
Even if, when I go out, I call her over and pet her and try to distract her, she goes right back to the circling. (also- her sister corgi has nothing to do with any of this, she plays with my daughter, or does other more normal stuff.)
So is our dog loony? Is she herding imaginary cattle? Can she hear moles underground with those very large ears? Does anyone else's corgi do this?
is she frapping? running like a circle eight pattern?
No, I've seen frapping- I know what that looks like. This is more of an intent "I lost my favorite bone around here somewhere, and I can't sit down until I find it." She's looking at the ground like she's looking for something or hunting something.
she and her sister do the "all out run and play" together. I really don't think this is frapping.
Yeah, not that. This actually looks worried/neurotic. I'm going to have to catch her doing it and video it.
Possibly she's a slow, worried, solo frapper?
I meant that it looks like work, not play.
