Dog Insists On Petting All The Pups At Her Doggy Day Care
Dogs enjoy being pet by their owners. They even have specific spots that they want you to pet for as long as they want. Sometimes, your touch could help soothe your dogs when they are a bit ᴜᴘsᴇᴛ or sᴛʀᴇssᴇᴅ.
Dogs love being petted, and it brings them joy. Some pups try to spread that joy by petting their owners or even other dogs.
Ruby and her brother Miles are regulars at The Den Doggy Daycare in Burlington, Oɴᴛᴀʀɪᴏ. There, the German shorthaired pointer is anything but laid-back when it comes to making friends.
Every time Ruby is around other dogs she shows her love the best way she knows how — by giving her fellow pups the pets they deserve.
The owner of one of the other dogs noticed Ruby’s sᴛʀᴀɴɢᴇ but adorable behavior a few months ago.
“She does it every time she is in. We think she wants attention!” dog Lexy’s owner Alanah Lorraine said about Ruby petting and patting other pets at the daycare.
When Ruby is at day care, she refuses to keep her paws to herself. Her dog friends often seem confused by her gentle strokes, but they put up with them anyway. They seem to know that’s just Ruby’s way of saying, “Hi.”
“Most dogs aren’t bothered by it and just let it happen,” Lorraine said.
It’s always cute when our dogs tap us with their paws and stare at us with their adorable doggy eyes. Putting their paws on you or to other dogs have different meanings. It might be that they are trying to get your attention, wanting a treat, signifying playtime with other dogs, or simply showing their love and affection towards you.
Lorraine began filming Ruby’s pawing anytime she caught her in the act and recently decided to compile the clips together. She posted the video on TikTok, where it got thousands of likes.
“I thought it would be adorable,” Lorraine said, “but I never imagined it would go viral.”
“We are so grateful to see everyone enjoying the video Alanah made and now everyone gets to experience the happiness dogs like Ruby bring us every day,” Spencer told BoredPanda.
In Ruby’s case, her act of petting might be just her trying to befriend every dog that she meets and hoping they will respond back in a kind manner. No matter what the reason, the fact that Ruby loves petting more than to be pet has made the world smile a little bigger.
When dogs ᴘᴀᴡ at each other and their owners, this can mean a lot of things. For instance, they might want attention or for others to play with them. Also, doggos can start pawing when they need something else, like food and they’re trying to “subtly” get your attention.
But, at the end of the day, the explanation can be simple: dogs are pack animals, they want to feel connected to others, so they reached out with their paws to touch other dogs and peoph
Now, Ruby is getting the attention she craves, and people are returning the favor by giving the good girl all the pets she deserves.
