A Doggy Tail/Tale



Have you ever noticed a dog's wagging tail?  I mean really looked closely, studied the direction of the wag?  Me, either...until yesterday.  Jacob came in from outside and, as always, his tail was going ninety miles an hour!  And, it was wagging in a circle - counterclockwise.  Odd.  It never occurred to me in all the years of having dogs, that there might be a message there or different wags.


Wagging to the right usually means the dog is happy and friendly.  A left wag signifies that the dog is wary, unsure, or frightened.  And..circles you ask?  That is a sign of an extremely happy dog!  Yep!  That's our Jacob in a nutshell!  He's a nut, and overflows with joy!  As for Moses, well...it's all in the eyes - Moses has no tail.  Sad, but true.  He came to us missing a part, but we love him just the same!

You may be wondering where I came up with this weird topic.  Actually, after noticing the circle wag yesterday,  I decided to Google it and found that scientific studies have been done on this very subject!  Who knew?  (Our tax dollars at work, no doubt!)



Okay, I know where you are going - out to check as many doggy tails as you can find, right?  Ha!  Enjoy your day!

    1. Lea - Thanks for commenting! We have an Australian Shepherd Mix and a Golden Retriever Mix that we just took in after their owner no longer could care for them.

  2. Both are such nice breeds of dogs :) The previous owners were fortunate that you could take them in.

    I hope that you made it through hump day just fine and will have a great weekend.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, too :)

  3. This tickled my fancy. We are living in a park model with a cat named RV. He has an exercise routine (he is not allow outdoors here) and tells us when he eats, used the little box and needs for us to get up. As for the tail I still don't know what that means. But I am that our tax dollars are at work on the subject right now. sigh!

    Good to have you back. Give HB my best.

    1. Barbara - Haha..cute name for your "talking" cat! Cat tails may be entirely different than a dog's...there MUST be a study being done somewhere! LOL!

    Praying for you and HB
