Funny behaviour (as in humorous)!

(Preston, Lancashire)

I have a wired haired JRT called Pip (of course)! She is nearly 3 years of age, she has been neutered and quite well trained (except on the lead but that's another story). She is quite well behaved and very lovable wanting cuddles constantly,(but she does bully my staffie Ben who is 10 years old but it doesn't seem to bother him so we leave them to it, unless it gets nasty which isn't very often).

Every so often she just lays on the rug in our living room on her back with all four paws straight up in the air and lies still for anything from 5 - 10 minutes, her eyes are half closed as though she is mesmerised or meditating! lol.

Is this normal behavior or is she attention seeking I'm very curious as she does this a lot. She also lies on her back and waggles her bottom half from side to side but she has no fleas and is very clean.

The other thing she humps my staffies bed and often kicks him out of it by growling at him, the funny thing is he moves as if to obey her every command! Just wondering if anybody else has a similar nutcase for a dog.

Would add a pic but can't find how from this page. Thanks for reading. Regards

Pip sounds like a true character. I'm sure she keeps you laughing and guessing about her behavior all the time. I think what she does is unique to her but not at all concerning. Every pup is different and she sounds like she marches to her own drum! It's what makes this little Jack so fun, they keep us on our toes in such different way.
