Default toby likes to kneel

sounds weird but my little baby 18 wk old chi likes to sit on either one or both knees..has anyone ever seen this it worries me, today he was sitting on his knees, legs kicked out behind him, front legs straight and he is sitting otherwise upright

when he lays out on his tummy he also favors stretching his legs behind him...

help!

I've never heard of a dog kneeling before; hopefully someone else can help you.

My new Chihuahua Lola also enjoys laying on her stomach with her legs straight out behind her. She does that a lot! I think it is funny as my other Chi didn't do that...but I don't know if it is normal or not?

Hi Ingrid, do you mean that your pup's front legs are stretched out in front of him as well as his back legs stretched out behind? If thats the case, then its what my little Poppy does too...looks hilarious! I dont think its abnormal though 'cos she seems fine in every way. I think they like to feel their tummy on the floor?!

Bosco does the stretching thing but Lola actually will lay that way or scootch across the floor like Clare said! And Clare - it DOES look like a frog!! I've been trying to think what she looks like when she does that. I kept thinking of a seal or a whale for some reason.

Auggie does it too and it is funny. One of my neighbors was laughing at the way he lays with his back legs out and said no dog could lay like that Wrong
