When you go outside it never fails that Smokey will come up to you, plop down and roll around at your feet. We call it “The Smokey Dance.”
Pardon my shadow in these pics lol. I tried to capture the true essence of “the dance” but he is really fast! We don’t know exactly why he does this dancing. It doesn’t seem to be to garner our love and affection, because if you bend down to pet him he bites! And if you don’t bend down and pet him he bites your ankle or leg. And if you try and run he chases you down and bites your ankle or leg. Not kidding. So when it’s chilly like now and we have on long pants we just suck it up, take the bite and move on. But when the weather warms up and we opt for shorts and exposed legs…well, my strategy is to wait until he is in mid roll and run for it lol.
