The fact is that most dogs don’t like to be put on their backs. And it’s not just because they have to be on their backs. They tend to have a strong tendency to kick at people they don’t like, as well.
My dog has this habit of laying on his belly and kicking, and I swear he’s only doing it because I put him on the floor. I don’t want him to do it himself, so I force him to do it. Unfortunately this tends to make him kick a lot more than he used to and I’m now in the middle of a back-to-back-to-back-on-the-floor-to-stay-on-my-knees routine.
The thing about kicking is that a lot of people do it, and you don’t want to be one of them. I’m not saying to stop or start. I am saying that you don’t want to end up on your back, either. I’m also not saying to go back to laying on your back, and kick. I’m not saying to lay on your stomach and kick. I’m saying to go back to whatever position you’re in and kick.
For a lot of people, this is just a side-effect of being on the couch. After a certain point, people can find they have a natural knack for the act. And because they’re still not in control of their own body, they find it easier to kick. I have a few of my friends who go back and forth on the couch, but I always end up on my back, too.
In my case, I dont think I’m alone in my laziness. But I think I can at least explain it. It’s an unconscious reflex to kick. Some people will kick because they can’t control their body. Others, like me, just because its lazy. Not only does it make the act of kicking easier, but it also makes the act of lying on the couch easier. That’s probably the main reason why I’ve been on my back for years.
I know I have a few friends who go back and forth on the couch too, but I know of a few that are the exact opposite. I go back and forth on the couch because I can just kick and lie on my back. I’m sure this may surprise you, but my family members think I go back and forth on the couch because I’m lazy.
Yes and no. Yes, because when I go back and forth on the couch, I think Im lazy. I want to be on my back, in bed, or even sitting on the couch, but I just don’t want to do those things. But I guess it’s not exactly about laziness, because I do go back up and forth on the couch, too.
The last time I was on my back and kicked I managed to kick my own dog, who laid on his back and kick at me. The funny thing is that this same dog actually laid right on top of me and kicked me back. I just had to kick him a few times to get him to stop.
In case you’re wondering, this is the same dog who lies on his back and kicks on the couch. He’s been laying on his back with his legs over the edge of the couch, kicking back and forth as he waits for me to come to him.
It’s not just the dog that is laying on his back and kicking. It’s the couch, too. We can all attest to the fact that if you lay on your back and kick then you get a very entertaining reaction. The couch in this case is not very welcoming to the animal. It’s usually just a very stiff and cold surface, so it doesn’t even feel like a good thing to give the dog a hard kick.
