Default Weird ? about sitting.

Ok, so Marbles is almost a year old...he sat on his butt for a long time, when I want to give treats, he sits back on his legs, but most of the time, he always still stits on the buttocks..I thought it was a puppy thing, but he will be a year old in a few weeks..we think this is kinda weird....he just plops down on his butt all the time...should we be worried about a hip problem or something?

Chloe sits like that sometimes.... not a lot, but she does.

I don't think you should be worried, but if you are, take him for a consulatation at the vet.

I'm laughing reading this, because Maggie sits like this all the time. I'm guessing they just like comfort?

That's how Abby sits too! I also thought it may be a puppy thing but she's not a puppy anymore and still sits like that. I think it's the funniest thing.

Sounds like she's in good company

I am convinced that beagles don't like to sit the way other dogs do. My Bagel never really sits when I tell him to sit, he looks like he is sitting properly but there is a 1/4 of an inch between his bottom and the ground and all his weight is still on his legs. His prefered sitting position is on one side his butt with the opposite rear leg stuck out in an wierd and not modest pose.

My grandma's beagle-basset Bullwinkle is famous for sitting on his butt with his paws straight out. It's his most famous trick! I took a picture of it one day: image !

Caesar sits on his butt too. It's really cute. He'll sit on my lap with his legs dangling like he's sitting in a chair.

Spencer will sit on a hip when he is tired, more often than not though he almost hovers, his butt never touches the ground.

Booker's two "sitting" positions are hovering a bit off the ground (especially if the ground is damp or dirty - she wouldn't want to get wet or dirty, of course) or sitting off on one hip with one of her legs sticking straight out - if anyone remembers the comic strip Bloom County (or its later reincarnations) she looks just like Bill the Cat when she sits (ack).

Moosie, however, does a perfect "sit" almost every time, except when he is on the hardwood floor and then his rear legs start to slide backwards... very funny!
