It is totally true that all dogs love a good tummy rub. Every dog's Achilles' Heel is a tummy rub, have no doubt. Cats don't dig it in the same way and that's because Evil hates feeling Good. Obviously.
But what's the flip side of a tummy rub?
A BACK SCRATCH.
So when you see your lovable pooch twisting and turning on their back, or a half moon stretch on the carpet and it looks like they're just DYING for a tummy rub? They probably are, and by all means, please move over there and relieve that tummy rub ache ASAP.
But! They're probably also scratching their back.
it's the best of both worlds. You rub their tummy, and they scratch their back.
Do it for your poochie! Do it because you love them! TummyRubs and BackScratches 24/7!!!! Yaaaaaaaaaaaay!
This has been a public service announcement from your dog. If they could talk. I'm speaking for us all. :)
