Are dogs just stretching when they bow forward and backward?
The bow you are speaking of is actually a way dogs show love and respect. Look closely at the context when the dog does it. Animal behaviorists have a name for this bow - I think it is called the "praetorian bow" or something. They tend to do it as a friendly greeting, to show gratitude, or sometimes when they are relaxed or sleepy. But, I believe this is a natural canine behavior and might be something they'd do within the pack. I suspect it relates to Alpha status - that is, they bow to the Alpha or to another member of the pack out of love and respect.
For example, my friend's German Shepherd is OCD obsessed with her ball - in a bad way. The other day I took her ball away from her and gently told her we were done for the day. She did that bow to me. I believe this was gratitude for me relieving her of her "job" (the ball).
Unfortunately, I can't provide more information about this or sources. But, I have heard about it from dog experts over the years.
Sometimes, but it also can mean they want to go for a walk or want you to play with them. A good belly rub works all the time.
It can also be whats known as a calming signal.. It could mean they are uncomfortable. But you need to look at the contexts to be able to conclude on why they are stretching..If say they are lying down and then get up and stretch..they are just stretching..if they are out playing with another dog and stretch it could mean that they are uncomfortable.
Sometimes when a dog goes into a forward play bow and maintains that position for more than a few seconds their stomach/bowels may be upset or causing them pain. That position can relieve some of the pressure and lower their discomfort.
If you have a dog that does forward bow often and for longer that it would take to stretch, especially after meals, they may have a food allergy to what they are being fed. Or possibly a more serious issue that requires a vet visit/medications.
that's just their nature! Read More

Very often, when you feel you are going backward, it is right before you make a great leap ahead. Look at how big cats (tigers, lions, cheetahs) stand just before they 'take off'-- they settle backward into their rear end, lower their heads while lifting their shoulders, then--- in a split second, they surge forward into the hardest, longest run of their lives. People are like big cats-- we just use our minds rather than… Read More

I dont know anything specifically about jaguars, but horses have elbowsonly in the front, the backs are called hocks because they bend forward rather than backward like elbows.

What would cause a cub cadet LT 1045 series 1000 to neither go forward or backward when the pedal is presses forward or backward?
The transmission isn't engaged. I just rolled my tractor off the ramp...after disengaging the transmission...then I got on, started it, and it wouldn't move. After 10 minutes of triplechecking the parking break, and randomly pushing buttons and shifting gears...I realized the transmission was still disengaged. It's the little lever on the back of the mower. There's a sticker that tells you what to do. Read More
A man takes a step forward with probability 0.4 and backwards with probability 0.6 Find the probability that at the end of eleven steps he is just one step away from the starting point?
1. He takes 6 steps forward and 5 steps backward 2. He takes 5 steps forward and 6 steps backward consider 1: p1 = (11C6)(0.4)^6*(0.6)^5 for 2: p2 = 11C5(0.4)^5*(0.6)^6 total probability = p1 + p2 Read More
When a fox's ears move forward, just like when dogs move their ears forward, they're attempting to focus all of their ears to one spot. This helps them hear faint sounds, which for foxes mostly helps in hunting the small, skittish animals that make up their diet. Read More
65km-45km = 20 km to the east. Just replace "east" by "forward" and "west" by "backward" and the answer is immediately visible. The words 'east' and 'west' are just typical math textbook style to veil that it is a simple subtraction that has to be done. Read More

== == == == I am only guessing about why cats stick their butts in the air, but I think it is for mating purposes. It makes it easier to mate. I also have dogs that do that too. Maybe it is just a stretching of their backs that cause them all to do that, huh, what do you think? Read More

Back-stitching generally refers to going "backward" over the first few stitches, then forward again. This is used to "lock" the stitches in place, to help prevent unraveling. It is used at the beginning of the stitch run, and again at the end. You only need to back stitch just a few stitches. Read More

They let you change directions/sprint much quicker. It also helps to make sure you don't roll your ankles or twist them. Running shoes are different from tennis shoes, and are designed to just run forward. Tennis shoes let you go backward, left, right, at a diagonal, and stuff like that. Read More
