    Default Bewitching hour....

    Hi! Curious if anyone else experiences something of the sort or has any helpful suggestions....
    Lexi Rae is almost a year old. She is quite calm all day. We go for walks 2-3x's a day. Going to play ball with her just amounts to her laying down and sunning her belly. However, around 6pm she has what I call a bewitching hour... She will do laps around the house a few times at full speed weaving in and out of tables and chair legs, rounding the corner, pausing momentarily then onto the next lap, while quite funny to watch we don't know where she gets this from, it's everyday... After about 20 minutes of this energetic behavior she lays down and in a few minutes is sound asleep.

    LOL! It's really funny to watch them do that! My shar pei used to do run crazy like that for years, but she's too old now. Mac (the bully) did it the other night but hasn't done it since.

    I've heard it called "Zooming" my female does it a lot but my male will just wait for her to come back around so he can join in with the fun ... it seems to be a bulldog thing, over the years all but my current little male bulldog have done it.
    I suffer from "M.B.S." (Multiple Bulldog Syndrome)
    because one bulldog is NEVER enough!!

    I've heard it called the puppy crazies! I was pretty impressed at Herman the way he was making laps and dipping under chairs. He doesn't do it as much anymore, especially now since he cant fit under most of the furniture he used to. Its usually after dinner so between 7:30 - 8:00pm

    Usko's attacks occures sporadically through out the day. Sometimes in the morning, sometimes in the evening and a lot of times when we're eating. I just love it...dinner and a show!

    Bacon usually gets his around 830 or 9 at night, we call him batdog when he is in that mode. I think there was another feed about this a week or so ago.

    Oh yes. Zoey gets ramped up at about 6:30 and terrorizes the house for a solid 30-40 minutes. We all sleep pretty good after that though!

    It's a bully thing. I have all kinds of dogs here but only the bullys do it!!! We call it the bunny-runs or the bully-runs!! They just run laps like crazy from one room to the next. Pause for a few seconds for a breather............. and then OFF they go again. We just sit and watch cos it's hysterical!!!!
