I guess I don't have the only canine nudger! Dogs are so funny; I really enjoy mine (most of the time
). I don't really mind the nudging, I just wondered what he meant by it. (The only time I mind it is when he nudges my bare arm with his moist nose and I can feel the wet spot on my arm!!)
Teach'n'Learn, I think you are right. I probably shift my feet and accomodate him when he does that. I often pat his head and talk to him when he comes in, too.
Phantomteach, too funny - I think my dog thinks the same thing when he herds me around the house!
