Sheba's tail definitely veers to the left! Should I be worried?

Ive noticed that Sheba's tail, which curls over her back, doesn't curl dead center. It kind of goes sideways to the left. At first, I thought it was just a cute idiosyncrasy but then I started thinking about how the tail is attached to the spine and all (part of the spine?). Am I being weird or is this something to get checked out? Do your dogs's tails curl dead center? I tried to get a picture, but it is impossible to get her to stay still and the tail is black on black anyway.

At this point, it is what it is. As long as it's not sore at all, I don't think it's a problem, especially if it's been that way all along. It would be a problem in a show dog, but not in a pet.

It doesn't seem sore, and she is definitely a pet! I guess I was starting to think about my kids...all those checks the pediatrician did for scoliosis. Though I've never heard of a dog with that particular ailment!

Mi guess is mi amiga Sheba is "Left pawed!"

Left, right, or dead center, Sheba is a winner in mi book.
