curlies

Hmmmmm.
Speculation only.
I have asked our Pyr, but he regards me with a patient gaze that expresses what he thinks of the question.
Maybe it's because their tail is very long and very full, so they have learned to hold it up and curled to keep it from snagging on bushes and stuff out there in the fields.
And, when they curl it tightly over their back when on alert, it serves to make them appear bigger and badder than the perceived threat.
If you pay attention, you can gage how your Pyr feels by the way he is holding his tail.
I asked mine, "how does that sound to you?"
He sighed and laid down on my foot.

Twisted tail
by: Mickey

I need to know the answer to that one also.
My Pyr Leelu will be eleven on 8 August. Her tail
is twisting and curling at the end. Any information
would be greatly appreciated. I would like to know
if this is normal. Thank you.
