Our toy poodle, Sophia, tickles me. She must visit both of us when we go to the bathroom. She comes and positions herself at our feet for a short petting session (30 seconds or so), then heads back down the hall toward her perch on top of the living room sofa to look out the window. When she heads down the hall she often "skips" (just like a kid would) with her back legs only. Sometime once, sometimes twice, sometimes three times, sometimes not at all. Seems like it's just what she wants to do at the time. Just tickles the heck out of me. I don't think I have ever seen a dog "skip" before. Anyone else ever noted this behavior? Is this a common trait in other dogs or poodles?
