    Anyone elses dogs have this one spot where you scratch and their leg starts going. Buster does it with a spot just under his ribs. Actually any idea why they do it? I thought it was maybe a ticklish spot

    yep all my dogs have, zeb is very kinky he'll do his "moterbike" as we call it if you rub his bottom ribs, his belly, next to his willy and on his bum sometimes lol

    so funny in certain places you can get both of his legs going makes me giggle!

    bear does it as well but only on his tummy they both have this look of "ooooooo thats nice" on their faces

    Thats just like my boy Badger used to be lol and my new boy Bullet doesnt motorbike but just lifts his leg to the side if you do it when he is stood up. Layed down it makes no difference.
