    I just noticed this today.... My dog either has a strange reverence or fear of guitars.
    He has an obsession with fetch and return of the ball, normally I do not allow the ball inside the house because if it rolls under a sofa or cabinet he will make short work of it in trying to get to the ball, he would chew through a 4x4 to get to his ball. Not pretty.

    today a mistake was made and the ball was allowed inside the house, though luckily it didn't roll under any furniture .... instead it rolled up against an acoustic guitar that was leaning up against the wall. It was brought to my attention when working outside, I heard the dog barking Non- stop and loud.... I go in the house and the ball is sitting right there for the taking, just touching the guitar but he wont get it with even his paw... ( mind you, this is the dog who knows how to open the sliding glass door) but he's sitting back 3 feet away mesmerized and barking. I tested it out and sure enough, when I move the guitar towards him he backs away...
    course, it could be just his way of telling me I've been playing out of key..

    Any one else have pets with strange behavior?

    If it's a little cold in the apartment, my cat has a tendency to tuck himself in under the covers on our bed.

    He usually crawls in head first, then turns around so only his face is poking out.

    We have 2 cats, Stormcloud and Lightning. Got Stormcloud when he showed up one day in the rain, starving and looking like he wasn't long for this world. Then, a neighbor had a kitten she wanted a home for, so I got Lightning to teach Stormcloud how to have fun again.

    Well..................Lightning is the one who has the quirk. Because he's still a kitten, he likes to investigate anything he hasn't see before, or that smells new.

    EVERYTIME that I go to the bathroom to urinate, Lightning follows me to the bathroom and then jumps onto the tub side and watches me take a whiz. Sometimes he puts his head into the toilet bowl. I'm scared that one day he might fall in.

    When we get home, our dog absolutely has to have something in her mouth to greet us with. We assume it's kind of a "welcome home" gift, so she frantically races around the room, looking for something. Doggie snack, Chapstick, whatever. Cracks us up.

    My dog bites his nails.

    He also likes to stuff his head into (his) people's sleeves.

    And if he wants to sit on the chair he just climbs up on top of me and situates himself along the side. He's about 75 lbs maybe more.
