Topsy-turvy

A while ago Laura commented on some of my Trygvi photos, and asked whether he really spent that much time upside-down. She didn’t remember Grendel as frequently inverted.

Trygvi really does spend a remarkable amount of time with his feet up in the air, whether doing a headstand, or swimming the backstroke across the living room floor. (No really. Someday I’ll succeed in getting video.) He doesn’t lie down like a normal dog, settling one half then the other. Instead, he goes headfirst in a somersault. I haven’t managed to teach him how that command, because it’s not something he naturally does, and he gets terribly confused when I try to position him.

Grendel, on the other hand, maintained more of a wolf-like dignity.

Okay, you can stop laughing now. At least he was right-side-up most of the time. I think this is the only photo ever taken of Grendel inverted.

And this is one of the few pictures of Trygvi looking distinguished that have ever been taken.

I don’t expect there to be many more of those: he’s not big on standing still.
