OK, our dogs do weird things. Our yard has multiple, big pine trees. They provide hours of entertainment for the greyhounds. They’ve almost reached China where they dig beneath them. Ring around the pine tree is a daily favorite. Bark at the squirrels living in them is a huge hit.
Once the trees start to dry up after the rainy season, they start leaning into trees. The lower branches become leaning posts. And then, they walk back and forth, pacing.
It has got to be one of the weirdest things, it even has a name. Trancing.
There is nothing more joyful than rubbing your hands across a soft coat and suddenly and unknowingly getting stuck… in pine pitch.
But oh the satisfaction.
Yup, it’s a greyhound thing.
