It burns! It burns!!! (Is that it?)

As with all our previous CCI puppies, any time we return from a walk of any length, Kyndall entertains us with extravagant contortions in order to rub her snout — newly released from its halter — on the rug, the floor, her paws. Here’s one recent morning’s display:

What’s remarkable is that when she’s wearing the halter, you’d never know it bothered her. We’ve had plenty of dogs try to claw their halter off. Dionne (our previous CCI trainee) managed to slip off a couple and destroy them before we noticed. Kyndall never does that. Only when the halter’s off does she act like a dog possessed.

I don’t get it. But it is entertaining.
