Can you tell what Luke is doing to Sheba here?
A closer look….
He is nibbling on her with his front teeth. He does this a lot. I read recently (I can’t remember where) that this was called “corn cobbing”, “corn rowing”, or “corn on the cobbing”. We used to tell him to stop doing it, but what I read said that it was actually a sign of affection. I believe that because Sheba doesn’t seem to mind it one bit. Look at her expression – she looks like she’s enjoying it, doesn’t she? Plus, Luke adores his sister.
Maybe it feels good, like a real good scratching. She certainly looks happy, doesn’t she?
Do any of your dogs do this to each other, and if so, what do you call it? Do you think that both sides enjoy it?
