Rolling in the GRASS!!!

Adri is 8 months now!! Since a few months back everytime I take her out on a walk she's been rubbing her head and body all over the grass while moving forward. Sort of similar to when she's trying to get fluid out of her ear on the carpet after I put ear cleaner in her ear after her bath.

It's so strange - I've never seen another dog do this and I'm worried she's going to get ticks on her...

thanks in advance!!

Sonic does that sometimes too! If I look very carefully in the spot where he is rubbing his head (sometimes in the grass, sometimes on the driveway) I will usually find a very tiny little dead worm or bug! I have even caught him doing it in the house and there will be a teeny tiny dead bug on the floor! hahaha!

My guys do it ALL the time. Usually it is so they can smell like the worm they are rolling on. My guys also do it right after they get groomed and are drying.
I just groomed Logan today and he ran out and rolled in the grass - I could have killed him!!! lol

There is a *ahem* delightful smell on the grass. rabbit poop, deer poop, some sort of urine, dead leaves, old nest, dirt, mud...

sigh.... They are disgusting little creatures.

TTFN,
Pam

Gross. So they roll around in it because they like the smell and they want to smell like it? Kind of like how people douse themselves with perfume?

Jack does it on walks, if he smells something really good on the road, he will roll not once, but twice. I let him, I don't see anything, but Jack sure does smell and it smells good!
