    Hi,

    My dog, a mixed breed, is 13 and showing her age. i noticed something new. when i scratch her chin, the underside of her bottom jaw, she puts pressure against my hand as if to have me scratch/rub harder - she seems to enjoy it. her eyes roll back into her head sometimes. i notice her doing it to herself occassionally now - she will scratch her chin into the ground.

    im wondering if anyone has noticed anything similar or heard of this? it seems odd that this would be happening in this particular spot.

    all help is appreciated!

    thanks,
    Peter

    My dog will do that, has since she was a puppy. Most of the times it's cause she wants to rest her head though, not anything about scratching harder...
