    Our redhead Cheyenne does the same especially when it is half frozen!

    Wooo seems to me perfectly normal sibe behaviour. Digging in water is great fun.

    BOL!! That was so hilarious!! Loved it!! Cheoah, tell the hu-dad you need a pool in there. That way you can really splash around. 🙂

    No, thank you, Hu-Dad, for sharing the Otter’s Waters with us. (Is Cheoah your Significant Otter?)

    I like to do the furry same thing, I have a bowl in the kitchen and its really not big enough to get my feets in good, but outside I have a pail like yours and I get in good, plenty wet at head and feets. I especially like it after walking when its hot out. I like shaking on my Mom too, cuz she will shriek a little.

    I am five years old too, do you spose that has anything to do with this? Nah, nah!

    Cheers,
    Stella

    Well, what else is an otter to do?

    Well we call our Sophie (Tsunami Sophie) because when she gets a drink their is water all over the kitchen floor. We even keep a towel on the floor so we can wipe the floor with out feet.
    But after watching this video, Sophie comes in a distant second to Water World Champ, Cheoah.

    So that’s how it’s done properly. My hu-dad complains that I wet the floor, but I see now that I have not even begun to master the skill.

    Bow down to the Great Cheoah!

    My Nakisha used to do that with a bowl, the last two didn’t. It looked like Cheoah was after something in the bottom, is the bottom shiny enough to have the goggies reflection?

    I don’t know what you’re complaining about. At least the floor gets cleaned. geesh. you should be so lucky to have such a great working dog…

    Cheoah does a great job of not tipping the bucket. What balance!!

    I swear my two are clones of those two! Non-stop entertainment…I love it 🙂

    If you put some little mop heads on her feet, I’m thinking she could take care of cleaning that floor for you!

  17. Juno and Niko on April 19, 2012 at 5:51 am

    Oh thank god, I’m so happy my Juno quit doin that for the most part. There would be water covering our kitchen almost every single day from her dunking her under and digging at the water bowl.

    It’s gotta be a “SiberThing”, because that was our Kiah to a “T”, and now Ayla does the same thing. Kiah used to stick her head right under the water, come up with a mouthful, then open her mouth and just let it run all over the floor. Looks like that’s the same thing Cheoah is doing.

      This this! My redhead husky does this too…

      Maybe it is a girl sibe thing…

      Is Juno a redhead too?
