I've been wondering what this means?

When I take Bentley for a walk he eventually starts looking up at me a lot and/or he touches the back of my leg with his nose every couple of steps. Is he trying to tell me something?

I call that a "nose kiss". I always thought he was just making sure I was really still there.

I have never given him treats on walks so I don't think that's the reason in our case.

I thought they always looked up at you because they were following your lead, like "are we going this way Mom?" By the way how is the home cooking going with Bentley, have you tried the new recipe yet?

He is being a very good boy, it is good when they are paying attention to you, just tell them "good boy." You want him to pay attention to you while walking.

Piper does this routinely - I think she's saying "Move Mama! Faster Amigo!"

I confirmed this by stopping to say "Piper, stop that. I'm not going to run." Her response was to run around to tap the outside my left foot with her nose and then back to do the right and so on.... so I do believe that this "nosing" is Hav-speak for "Move it!".

Thanks for asking! Bentley got sick again right before we were ready to start so we had to change our plan a little and just start with two ingredients. We have been doing that for several days now and so far so good.
