Dahlia photo #21

I like to get photos of Dahlia running. This past weekend I decided to try to get photos of her taking off from runs. I took several and this one was my favourite. I'm not sure if other dogs take off this way but it seems that Dahlia powers off from her back legs when she takes off. It looks really strange and awkward, both in person and in photos. She does this weird excited "OMG!!" thing with her paws in the air as she takes off.

Does anyone else have a dog who takes off from a sit like this? How do YOUR dogs take off from a sit?  And yes that IS drool coming out of her mouth.

Ours launch themselves in weird ways at times. We've been mocking Wile-E a lot lately about the way he runs around, hard to describe but the best I could come up with is that he "lollops" like a mad cartoon character, has a real Tigger spring to him but it's all over the place as if his legs are making conflicting decisions on which way each is going!

That is so cool!

I haven't looked at Tempe to see how she launches herself from sit but now I'm dying to see! LOL.

Isn't she ridiculous? What dog takes off like that? Maybe this is why she's not that fast off the start line. lol

Well, I've got this absurd monster who wasn't even supposed to be GOING anywhere and all four of his feet are off the ground.
