Sadly, they mentioned that Mastiff mommas can get Uterine Inertia which got the simple terrier confused. Let me refer you to the dictionary. Let's see... A, B, S, M, W,... yes, here it is.
Uterine Inertia is the ancient Latin spelling of what we have come to know as UTURNIN INSERT SEE YA.
This refers to the challenges faced by large and inflexible mastiffs such as myself when trying to execute a U-Turn in close quarters or at high speeds. Fortunately, the dictionary provided useful diagrams which I will post in total.
The problem is most likely to occur in young and inexperienced mastiffs.Their reckless youth can result in performing U-TURNS at dangerous speeds causing their center to arc unattractively and their legs to become tangled.
Leading to somewhat embarrassing postures.
Terriers, on the other hand, do not have the same anatomy as Mastiffs. To start with, they have banana tails, but that is incidental to our lesson.
What is key is that instead of normal bones and joints, their leggies have springs inside as you can see from this actual x-ray of a terrier (note typical terrier stomach contents).
The demonstration photos of a UTURNIN terrier are quite instructive.
Even at a young age, a terrier is able to achieve vertical lift that makes UTURNIN almost effortless.
Resulting in a perfect finish.
Mastiffs, however, should not be discouraged from practicing their UTURNs and with careful study, one can become as graceful as I.
Foot placement is key.Yes, all you full sized doggies out there, buck up. With hard work and patience, you too can be executing pirouettes in both directions with the grace and dignity of the Mango.Any questions?
Mango Man! Oh yeah!
P.S. Hey, Keeg Hand, are you reading this dude? Fenway just called and said she wants her own bloggie pronto.
