Rolling in it.

I've noticed Stella doing this to her rawhide treats. She plays with them for a bit and then rolls around on them. Interestingly, she does the same thing to clothes I put on my bed from the dryer and also rolls around on top of me in the mornings when we first wake up. I wondered if she was trying to get my scent on her but my daughter thought she was trying to get her scent on me. Does anyone know why dogs do this and does your dog roll on you like that too?

Cicero will roll around on me when we get in the bed, then walk up and down my body for a while. He feels like a Great Dane. I have ask him if he is giving me a massage??? Trying to get warm?? Trying to keep me awake??? Wanting a belly rub??? He just looks at me like..."GUESS!!" This little monkey will never answer my questions. He's just like my kids!!!! He also gets so excited when I head for the dryer...he loves to pile in the middle of warm clothes.

Dogs will usually rub themselves on things to try and get that smell on them. It's a hunting instinct so that they don't give themselves away to prey by smelling like dogs. They are not like cats in that respect... they're not trying to put their smell on things, it's the other way around.

I think I will start using my perfume on Cicero so he will stop rolling on me!! Now, why wouldn't he just tell me that...

Speaking of rolling in it...

Sophie likes the stanky stuff. Last night, we were close to leaving my in-laws house so I though I would let Sophie out to do her business. My in-laws live in the woods on a couple of acres. Sophie sniffed around the front yard to the edge of the woods, found some turkey poop (a huge flock live in the woods) and rolled in it!!! ARRGGHHH! I had to give her a bath before we could go home and I had her scheduled for the groomer this morning...I took her anyway, they laughed, I sighed.

Unconditional love!

Roxie rolls on her chew treats too. I don't mind it so much if it's the flossies cause they don't stink... but some of the bully stickes... whew! Why anyone or anything would want to smell that way is beyond me!
