Clementine and her pig  
We call this "rowing the pig." She does it constantly but we have no idea what she is really doing? Any suggestions?




 
 
I am feeling: amusedamused

She is nursing, I think. Daisy and Gambit both do that on a soft plush toy. You can tell by the paw motions which is what puppies would do to stimulate their mother into producing milk. At least that's what I've been told. My babies do it to calm down and relax, or when they are feeling a bit moody and want some comfort. That's my best guess from what I've seen.

the thing with the paws, is what puppies do to the area around their mother where they nurse. it's a comfort thing. :)

she's so funny

Yep she's sucking on it! Gracie does it and she's two. I kind of think its cute. Although it can get annoying at times because sometimes she is so loud! Usually when she's trying to fall asleep
Genevievealwaysgenevieve on September 15th, 2008 09:49 pm (UTC)
loud really? Clementine never makes any noises. The panting in the background is my other boston

Wow, I've always wondered. Zoe sucks and kneads on a blanket as she is falling asleep sometimes. I never realized that was what she is doing. Pippin doesn't do that. I mean she kneads things but not the suckling thing. They both still suckle in their sleep. Jeff and I lol when they do it sooo cute.

Hehe, yeah, Winston sometimes nurses on a toy when he has a good grip or something. Mostly he just slobbers on his paws when he does it :)
miserable, arrogant old bat: jimcottonmanifesto on September 16th, 2008 07:59 am (UTC)
she is kneading to try to get milk out of the pig. it's not gonna work lol!!
astro boy toystarlitziggy on September 16th, 2008 07:11 pm (UTC)
my roomate's 2 year old mini poodle does it & so do all cats :} they dont suckle but every cat ever always kneads! "experts" say it takes them back to simpler times when they were with their mama.

for sure nursing! that's too cute!

we had a cat who was weaned too early and sucked, "made biscuits" with his paws, and fake nursed until the day he died. it's like they're in heaven when they do it!!
it's all just simple math to me.operationtrauma on September 16th, 2008 09:02 pm (UTC)
oops - sorry, that was me!
