rubbing beard on floor normal?


I have noticed Luigi rubbing his little face really his "beard" on the floor before he eats and sometimes when he is not eating. He went to the groomer last week so the hair is not super long. Is this just a little quirk? Or could something be bothering him?

Lugi is the first puppy I have ever had and we just love him to pieces!!
Thank You for any advice in advance!

There's nothing unusual about that. A lot of them do it for various reasons. Don't worry about it. I'm sure in the morning a lot of other people will weigh in.

Yes, Augie does it too - frequently - usually after I have combed him and made him all 'pretty'. Figure he doesn't want to look too 'prissy' - after all, he is a guy, and going for a bit of a disheveled look! Actually, with all that hair around their chin/jowl area, it probably itches?

Hehe - my guys do that every single time that they get a bath!! And very often the prefer to do it outside in the grass!
I think that they do it on purpose

Abby does it especially when she's just eaten - wiping her face off, I guess! She rubs each side of her face on the legs of the coffee table!

LOL, I was just going to say that.. Tillie rubs her face every night... after she gets her yogurt, she rubs her face all over the carpet, then licks it. LOL trying to get every last morsel, I guess!!

Gucci rubs her face for 3 reasons
a) she's wet
b) she itches
c) she can't see though her bangs covering her eyes
