Bruno and Judy both do it: just before I put their meal dish down, they jump up and down with front paws 6 to12 inches off the floor repeatedly until I make them sit. They do the same thing on a walk if I reach in my pocket for a treat that is possibly coming their way. Do other labs do this?

Wes does -- I get the "HURRY UP WITH THAT LEASH BEFORE I 'SPLODE" bounces. And what kills me is that after the atomic power-wags, the bouncy-bounces, the mrff-mrff-mrfff's of excitement at the prospects of actually going out-of-doors (despite having been out, oh, two hours or so ago), he'll DASH to the first peespot of one of the girls on our circle and STAND THERE NIFFING for 20 minutes.

Which is especially fun in the rain. Or cold.

Me: I THOUGHT YOU HADDA GO?!?!?!?!?!?!

HK does it all lthe time in anticipation of anything she likes.

If she hears the release on the trunk of my car, or sees me opening it, she races to the car and starts the bouncies. (The Chuckit is kept in the trunk of my car.)

When we enter the dog park, she bounces all around me until I throw a ball or she is convinced that I don't have one.

Jo did it all the time - and barked. Everyone around here knew when it was feed time. :D

Same thing when we were going out for a walk. It was almost impossible to get the leash on him because he was jumping around so much. :)

Koda, careful with your bounces girl! :)

Macy does it. I prepare the food on the counter, she does a sit/stay while I bring Frankie's into the other room. I come back and say GOOD STAY and slip the training lead over her head.

Then she bounds across the room *bounce bounce bounce* as I put her food down. It's hysterical! :D

Otis does the bounce for food and for going out. When I come home they both just come over to see me, no bouncing.

Kacey doesn't bounce. Kacey jumps into the air and does 360s. She runs up and down the stairs, streaks into the kitchen, hits the vinyl, slides into her food bowl and then waits until I get there with the food. I really need to get it on videio.
