Matilda's favorite thing in the world is to have her butt (specifically her curly tail) scratched. She loves it so much that every time you even poke her tail, she starts licking the air.
Recently, she's been dragging her little butt in circles on the floor. Normally, I take this as a sign that she needs her anal glands taken care of, but she had it done at the groomer's maybe two weeks ago. Also, she gets a VERY distinct fish smell when they need to be um... expressed. Which hasn't happened.
And while dragging right now, she does the licking-the-air thing the whole time which leaves me to believe she's just figured out how to scratch her own butt. She also only does it on our super fluffy carpet (great..)
What do you think? Does anyone else's bullie do this?
Banks does this at times and it is her 'girl' needing a wipe or her belly down near the girlie region. Banks has a lot of skin in the area so I consider it like the tail pocket, have to clean/wipe that area every day

Thank you for all the love, fun and teachings
Hmmm everything seems to be clean when she does it. I'll lookout to see when she starts dragging and whether it's before or after I clean up her tail pocket and lady bits.
My "Frenglish" loves to "scratch her tail/butt! She will sit on my foot, or on a toy, and just go back and forth, back and forth. I took her to the vet, and her anal glands were clean, she has no tail pocket-everything is clean. she has been doing this since she was about 6 mo. old. It's just a silly habit with her. I have a donkey, who will back up to you from 20 feet away-just to get her butt scratched! She looks like she is lining up to kick-but never kicks!

Lola does the same thing, She's just very very bossy. (we're all clean down there and up in there)
It's difficult for them to get back there.
They all see to relish a good butt scratch.
My EB does the same thing. I just got her analysis gland cleaned out. Only at nighttime she drags her butt and lick the air. I then massage her butt and then she will stop. I cleaned her every night . She's probably the cleanest dog on the block
