Got an itch


Am up to date with my flea and tick treatment but every time I sit down I feel the need for a good scratch. Owner wonders whether this just a bad habit or if I have a permanent itchy spot.

    My mum loves it when I stop and scratch mid course… When you gotta scratch then you gotta scratch.
    Name tag looking very pretty too… Nice accessory.

      I know but I can’t seem to stop. Name tag is the one the nice lady found when I’d lost it for a week:)

    Itchies are the worst! Boomer and Dottie get them too, but theirs are usually from allergies.

    Scratching is what dogs do best? But yes, I can do less with the scratching thank you. Looks are fly away dog hair on floor*

      Yes my point exactly. Our house has a permanent sheen of black hair and loadsd more come out when Ruby scratches!

    It just feels so darn good doesn’t it?

      I know but everytime she’s stationary????? At traffic lights, when I’ve just taken her lead off at the park, when she comes into the house?

      Thanks – am trying to itch out of doors so the hairs don’t clog up the floors wooowooo!

    Millie’s been doing that a lot…

      Strange affliction for dogs of the world then – I knew you meant Mollie!

      • mollieandclaire / Sep 11 2013 8:58 am

        I even banned her from my bedroom, spent ages checking her over.. I wondered if maybe she’d been bitten by a horsefly or something.

        They’re funny things aren’t they?

    I know exactly what you mean Ruby! I get itchy when I get excited. We did rally competition for awhile and I would get so excited in the ring that I would have to stop and have a good scratch. It made the Mom Person sigh a lot and brought out a lot of laughter from the spectators. I didn’t understand.

      They don’t understand us at all either. Can quite see where you’re coming from – it’s only natural after all:)

    I have permanent itchy spots like that too Ruby and Simba as well. Just a pity we never have someone to scratch hey? LOL!

    • rubytheblacklabrador / Sep 12 2013 9:33 pm

      Ruby’s getting worse though – think it’s just a habit now rather than a real need!

    Haha maybe your skin is stretching. 🙂

    To itch is canine,
    To scratch? Divine!
