Pug Poop Cycle
Sunny has to sniff every inch of grass near her until she finds a potential spot. Then she'll circle, sniff, circle, sniff. If I see her pawing at the ground, I get hopeful that she's finally going to poop. But this is no guarantee. Scratching at the ground means there's a 40% chance she'll finally do her business. More often than not she'll circle a bit and even go so far as semi-squatting until, for some unknown reason, she realizes that this is not the right spot and she dashes off to find a new place to poop. This process can repeat for up to 5 times. Sometimes I feel like a ringleader in a circus with Sunny running in circles around me and then making tighter and tighter circles until she finally poops.
I never see any other dog in my neighborhood do this so I'm thinking it might be a pug thing? Like they need the centrifugal force to poop? This can be frustrating when I'm in a rush in the mornings, but it's always entertaining and hilarious!
