Thank you for this information about one of my dogs. My Labradoodle does this after every*single*squat*and*sh%t.

My male dog doesn’t scratch the ground to leave his mark but he is on the receiving end of the dirt in his face because he’s much smaller than the Labradoodle.

I thought Pearl was doing this truly annoying thing to cover up her poop. I thought she was being modest. Not only was I wrong but I was completely thrown off the scent of the correct answer. Doh!

Alas, I shall recover from being wrong and live to tell the tale (tail?).
