I was watching Shiloh, our Staffie pup, chasing her tail. She was at it for about 5 minutes non-stop and afterwards just ran about normally. If I tried spinning round & round like that I'd fall over.

So why, afterwards, did her legs not not become as unsteady as ice-pop tubes full of blancmange like mine would have?  [???]

If you bad-mouth a beaver you send it to the orthodontist.

As a firm believer in empirical study I picked up my daughters doggy and attached it to the end of my drill....

After ten minutes of many-happy-returns I can reveal that Doggy was not giddy !

Glad I could help. [:)]

That looks like the dog they zapped with lightning on Brainiacs.

What do you expect - the dog belongs the the "ep" family and you know how strange they are. (Present company specifically excluded, re: above poster)
