Frap - This is a common word in the world of Corgis and also Scotties, frapping is when a dog races around excitedly, spinning and turning circles and figure eights at top speed for no reason at all. This activity is also called hucklebutting in Bull Terriers. Here's a blog post I wrote about it!
Trancing- A really strange activity performed by Bull Terriers and sighthounds, the dog rubs it's body against low-hanging tree limbs, blankets or curtains and starts moving in slow motion. More info here
Twizzle- The twizzle is the bit at the end of a Lab's tail that should be twisted together to form a tight spike.
Fluffies- Another Corgi term, this describes a coat of extreme length with exaggerated feathering on ears, chest, legs and feet, underparts and hindquarters. This is also in Rottweiler term!
Blenheim- This is the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel term for red and white coloring.
Landseer- The Newfoundland term for black and white.
Harlequin- The Great Dane term for white with black patches.
So, does your breed have a weird term for something they do, a color pattern or a certain physical trait?
I linked up to Ruckus' Thoughtless Thursday because this post has been a draft for YEARS because I wanted to find more examples, but decided "What the heck, this list will never be as long as I want so I'll just post it now!"
