Oh god, Hudson was making me laugh so hard I was having a bit of trouble breathing. He just did the goofiest thing I have ever seen him do, and he’s routinely a bit goofy.
You have to understand, first off, that bugs are a relatively recent discovery for Hudson. I suppose he first started paying attention to them a little before Christmas, because I remember it still being a new thing when we visited my family. In the past couple weeks, he’s finally figured out flying things – before then, he would emphatically sniff where they had been and not be able to figure out what happened to them.
So I’m sitting here at my computer, and I see Hudson sniffing his belly…and then he got his back leg up and ducked his head under it and was sniffing at the ground. I’m not sure what happened next, but I THINK he tried to jump after a fly…darting farther under his back leg. What ended up happening was that his back foot swung down and he kicked himself on the back of the head. He then very abruptly untangled himself and gave this snort…and started looking for the fly again.
OMG. It was the most ridiculous looking thing you can imagine. I was laughing so loudly that my fiance, who was in the next room, poked his head out to see what had me cracking up so badly and I couldn’t finish a phrase to tell him.
