Who needs keys when we've got clubs?
Who needs please when we've got guns?
Who needs peace when we've gone above?
ACK!! no no no Keep the mind above the tail...lol
Mine parks in front of me all the time and looks over the shoulder at me. I try to explain to him that's not the end I want to pet. He'll turn around briefly to let me pet his head but then resume the origional position and wait. It's just wrong.
Look on some sites about therapeutic massage' for dogs and seriously, they will love you for it. I'm not sure if I'm doing them as good as a professional but I'm doing it the best I can and they seem to love their sessions.
Come to think of it, I like scratching the lower part of my back before my bum kinda like before where a tail would be if I was a dog or cat LOL
I totally agree. Massages in that area feel amazing as well. Maybe it's a part of general mammal anatomy that just likes to be petted/scratched/massaged, whatever, for whatever reason.
The cats that lived with me enjoyed being scratched there as well.
that is not normal, the only dogs I have met that don't like getting a good butt scratch have some kind of pain issue..... granted your's could just not like it, but that would not be my first guess.
I also have a cattle dog. All three of mine scratched there back end and her togue comes out when i scrtch her butt. In your case try sqeeze the anal glands. If that dont worg. put a little olive oil n her food , that but the oils back in the skin. Or aliierges of the food
My English Labrador does the exact same thing. He does have thyroid condition and takes a pill twice a day. When I first noticed it, he had a lot of flaking...but no sores...He did get sore on his ttail later but it is healed, and fur grew back. He constantly wants me to scratch him right where his tail attaches his rump. He will do the licking too...seems to really really enjoy it :). I am trying anti itch shampoo and may try the oatmeal one too....let ya know if I find something that works :)
