What are Zoomies Really? - The Truth Revealed

What are Zoomies Really? - Buffy and Fluffy Reveal the Truth.
Woof! Woof! Hello, you guys. Today we have another special discussion on the blog. We'll be discussing why your dog is acting crazy. Don't worry! It's just a case of the dog zoomies!

What are Zoomies Really?

If you've ever noticed your dog suddenly supercharged, running faster than normal and acting crazy, then you've witnessed the Dog Zoomies aka FRAP (Frenetic Random Activity Periods). 

The zoomies dog definition according to the Urban Dictionary is, "When your dog runs around the house like crazy jumping on the couch, running up and down the stairs, and all over the house. It usually ends with them falling to the floor, panting like crazy and taking a nap."

You probably wondered why this happens. It's something that many pet parents are puzzled about and we thought we'd clear up any questions you might have about it.

It's best to get these answers from us because we know more about the subject. Zoomies is in our blood. Literally! But we'll discuss that later.

Fluffy will be joining me today. She's been a bit unhinged lately after the spay experiment. Not sure if she's still high or what. Who are we kidding? She has always been crazy! Help me!

Buffy: Morning Fluff!

Fluffy: Morning Buff! I heard that crazy comment! Grrr!

Buffy: It was a compliment Fluff! Geez! I see you're all better now after the Needleman experiment.

Fluffy: Yes Buff, I'm all good now and I got some sweet revenge on mommy too. She'll be feeling my wrath for a while still.

Buffy: Sorry I couldn't help you with revenge business. I was too busy hiding from the scissors. But I've seen your revenge work in action and I'm impressed.

Fluffy: Thanks, Buff! And I understand why you couldn't help. Your hiding was actually part of my plan.

Buffy: Wait! What?

Fluffy: Huh?

Buffy: We'll discuss it later! Today our loyal fluffy pack wanted to know all about zoomies. All dogs get them, but you get them all the time it seems. Maybe you can answer this one Fluff.

Fluffy's zoomie confession.
Fluffy: Well, Buff!... Long ago our ancestor, the wolf was bitten by the crazy Tasmanian devil aka the Zoomie god. Ever since then the wolf and all its descendants, including us were cursed with changing into crazy dogs at least two or more times a day.

Buffy: Seriously Fluff!

Fluffy: Yep!

Buffy: So we're kinda like a werewolf but in this case Tasmanian devil cursed wolves.

Fluffy: Weredogs!

Buffy: Yes, we are dogs Fluff!

Fluffy: No, I said Weredogs! One word!

Buffy: Oh I get it! Is there a cure for our zoomie weredog curse Fluff!?

Fluffy: When we change into zoomie weredogs we provide laughter for our humans so there's no need for them to look for cures. I rip apart stuff during my change but I also do it when I'm just a doggie. It's normal fluffy behavior amplified!

Buffy: You ripped apart my bed at least 10 times this week!

Fluffy: Sorry Buff! It was the weredog! Not me!

Buffy: Don't worry about it, Fluff. Mommy will fix it. Why do they call it dog frapping?

Fluffy: Someone made up a long 4-word explanation, Frenetic Random Activity Periods and then realized it's a mouthful. Now it's called FRAP.

Buffy: Geez! These humans!

Fluffy: Yep Buff! They are a very indecisive species.

Buffy: I second that! I was wondering something, Fluff. I normally get zoomies at 5 pm only and you get them in the morning around 7 or 8 and then 5 pm again. Why do you get double zoomies?! Is there a reason?

Fluffy: Well, Buff. The curse is stronger in younger doggies. In time, I'll only change once a day. When I was a puppy I got it all day long. It's part of growing up.

Zoomies is coming...

Buffy: That makes sense yes Fluff! Young dogs get it more and older dogs less. Are there any tips you can give our loyal fluffy followers on what to do when they witness the zoomies?

Fluffy: Sit back and enjoy the show! Bursts of energy are completely normal dog behavior. Don't laugh when you're eating or else you'll choke and don't blame your doggies for what the Tasmanian devil did to the wolf all those years ago. Things will get destroyed in your house, but it's not your dog's fault. It's the weredog's fault!

Buffy: Thank you for that valuable information Fluff! I'm sure the fluffy pack and dog owners everywhere will appreciate it. Even though it sounds like it was made up.

Fluffy: Nope! That's the story of our people Buff! It was just buried like all curses are.

Buffy: I think we can end off now and go rest up for afternoon zoomies.

Fluffy: Agreed! My morning zoomies were productive but I'm wiped!

There you go, guys! I hope you have all your dog zoomies questions answered now. Mommy thought that Fluffy was possessed when she first witnessed the zoomie change.

Someone told her it was just zoomies but now we know that it is a form of possession by a different type of devil that's also a cartoon character. The horror!

Please don't bother with cures. Us doggies love zoomies and you should too!

Woof!! Arhoooooooff!!
