    So, along with levitating, Gusto spends a fair amount of his time walking around like some demented ape. Whenever he sees or hears something far away (dogs across the field, people talking in the distance, etc) he gets on his hind feet to have a better view and walks towards it. I'm not talking a few feet. My mother saw him do it first, and she said it was "halfway across the green" which is a giant grass area in our neighborhood. I assumed she was exaggerating.

    Until I saw him do it. 10 yards? 15? At least. Just stands right up and walks. He doesn't hop, he doesn't put his feet down or seem to struggle. Just meanders over like a guy trying to pick up a hot chick in a bar.

    I really want to get it on video, but I did finally get a couple of still shots of it. He'd reached the top of the hill in the hay meadow and I think was watching the horses being brought in.

    It is really quite creepy.

    I think you should be afraid. Be very afraid.

    lol! I'd be scared.
    Since I taught Quinn to walk on her back legs she does periodically use it to see further or look onto higher surfaces (eg: the bench while we're making dinner) but Gusto makes it look so easy.
    Def can't wait to see the vid.

    That's awesome lolol. Webby does that but not for 10-15 yards at a time...he'll usually either just stand there and watch or walk 5-10 feet. Gusto's practically going for a stroll!

    And I love the "evolving" comment lolol

    First i thought it was cute....but after reading the thread I am getting a little nervous. Have you seen any other signs, like is he using a cell phone or reading the paper?

    Now we know what part of his mix is . . . MEERKAT!

    Tallulah does that. And yes, it can be a little creepy when she's obviously looking for something to *get*
