    The centrifugal force on their tails must be incredible! Or is it centripetal? I better go ask the hamsters…

    Does it spin the other way south of the equator?

    Loved the ‘Got Milk?’ milk mustaches at the end!

      Our dog has an upset digestive tract today, so I drove to the vet’s to pick up some food that will be calming for him, after a short fast.  While I was there, I asked the tech to pull up BB on her computer and showed the staff this video.  Laughs and giggles from all!  They thought the reason the dogs are circling is because so little goat’s milk is poured into a big doughnut-shaped dish where there isn’t enough room for their muzzles and noses to get to the milk, so they turn sideways and follow the path of the milk.  The largest-headed in the litter determines the direction the siblings walk.  Also, puppies are greedy.  Milk taken from a sibling is tastier.

        maybe not.  these guys prefer clockwise, but when my german shepherd gets excited because we’re going to go outside, she circles around me–counter-clockwise only.  every.  single.  time.  from when I got her at four-months-old through this very day (she’ll be five y.o. in april.)  Counter-clockwise only.  believe me, I’ve been keeping track.

        so it makes me curious if this litter of Scotties does clockwise habitually, or if my dog is just weird, or what.

          Canine rotation depends upon the Earth hemisphere they reside in combined with the declination of the local magnetic field.  RPMs are determined by magnetic field strength.

             well, thank goodness I can put that conundrum to rest, and I look forward to experimenting with my dog in Australia!  kudos!

    My family has always had scotties. Awesome, tough, clever and witty as hell. You have to be around ’em for a while to see it, but yes, scotties have a fantastic and bona fide sense of humor.

    I am imagining calliope music playing in the background.

    That can fill in as a unicorn chaser.

    That’s right, who needs all of Cyriak’s video editing software?

     What is a Scottie Pinwheel? That link seems broken.

    But the real question is: what did Jesus say in the Book Of Nigel? And why did the early church FATHERS omit the Gospel of Analise?

      I was really hoping for the name theme to turn a 180 there at the end.
      Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Cthulhu, Elphaba!

    For a second towards the end, I thought they were going to turn the other direction!  :-)

    Cyriak videos have gotten really boring! At least he didn’t put his own music to this one.

  16. Better than a unicorn!
