I am sitting her and can't stop laughing. My oldest son sent me a picture of his Maltese dog dressed in a Matha Stewart lounging robe that someone gave him. He also got a smokinig jacket and a sweat shirt with little pockets where you and I would put our hands for warmth. This silly dog stands on both front legs when he is outside doing his thing.

By "doing his thing", I can only imagine you mean what dogs go outside to do. He stands on his FRONT legs to do this? That must get just a bit messy. Ya got a pic of that happening?

The TV station TBS runs A Christmas Story non-stop from Christmas Eve through Christmas Day. ABC Family is running all the Christmas specials...I'll be putting that on later this afternoon. I HAVE to get my Heat Miser and Snow Miser fix again.

I have a video, but I can't seem to upload it. I am not good at doing those things. I have seen it with my own eyes also.

This dog gives me more laughs. He will not let me sing. I am lucky if I get two notes out before he attacks me. I keep a bowl of water here for him. If I don't place it back in just the right spot, he will nip at my ankles to move it. And if it is empty, he picks it up and puts it right in the middle of the doorway so I don't miss it.

One of our previous male pomeranians--acted that way too, like he was trained in a circus walking on his front paws when he 'did his thing'. He was such a show off! No mess and very funny.

That's really weird. Seems like he would pee all over himself. Forget pooping with his butt up in the air! Ha! I'll bet that was worth a laugh!

It's not really weird, many breeds learn this trick.

Search youtube dog walking on front paws and you'll see dozens of videos.

That's pretty weird to me! Talk about the hardest way to do something!

I betcha it's mostly small dogs that do this. Dogs try to cover up pee from other dogs. If a taller dog peed on a tree before a smaller dog, the smaller dog will try really hard to get his pee to cover the taller pee spot. This probably lets the dog get his pee higher than just lifting a leg.
