White Dog has decided that she must add Physics to the list of things she needs to teach Quinn. The OTHER White Dog has developed the strange habit of bounding full speed like an uncoordinated pup into the house when he returns through the dog door. He madly zooms through the bedroom, down the hall, cuts a hard right and then another and enters the kitchen at about 100 mph (White Dog has clocked him at 99.6 mph with her radar gun). He is happy and full of charming enthusiasm and joi de vie. His entry is such a wonderful burst of glee. The problem is when he hits the kitchen floor he loses traction. Gravity and momentum take over and he ends up sliding across the floor like a baseball player hitting third base on a steal. White Dog and I sat there tonight watching (and already foreseeing the outcome) as TOWD zoomed by, hit the vinyl, and careened in beautiful slow motion into his food bowl, water dish, and ended up smashing his head on the kitchen cart. White Dog said, "Wow! That had to hurt. I better teach him a couple of physical laws before that boy really knocks himself silly." By the time she finished her thought, Quinn was back on all fours chowing on kibble and totally taking advantage of Michael's sympathy massage.

hey Siku Marie,

Quinn sounds like my kind of pup! Maybe he is into X-treme dog sports! And X-treme sports always entail a few bangs. You are a girl dog, so you are more dainty and may not understand the mind of us boy dogs. We love to get rough in play! Quinn was probably laughing with glee as he slid across the floor. I know I would! :->

But, Quinn is lucky to have such a caring big fur-sis to look out for him!

We are BOL!!! Quinn must be very excited about coming back into the house after taking care of business outside. Sierra likes to zoom into the house too. Siblings....

Love,

And we can just see you smiling at all his silliness:) We don't have very far to go from the door to the kitchen, but when it is dinnertime, we all manage to skid our way around the turn.

Tell Quinn that the same thing happens all the time at our house - kitties are notrious for sliding across the floor. So he is not alone in that one!!
