That's the spot!

What spots make your B's melt when you pet or scratch them?

For Cody, when I scratch him behind the ears and on the sides of his neck where the fur whorls a bit, he'll lean into my hands until he almost falls over. He does the same with cheek rubs. We were in Petsmart one day and one of the workers found the spot on his neck… when he stopped petting him to go back to work, Cody followed him like he wanted more love.
I've recently discovered that he absolutely loves his ears rubbed lightly just on the inside where the longer prickly hair sticks up a bit. His eyes cross and he'll just about topple over! 😃

Mine melt when I gently stroke their ears!

I'll have to really pay attention to find Kipawa's favourite spot, because right now he is a total love sponge and pretty well melts wherever I touch him.

Brando loves it when I rub the white stripe that runs between his eyes…
Ruby loves her chest rubbed...
Aaliyah loves her neck scratched...
Ozzy loves being scratched behind his ears...

Abbey gets up and moves if you scratch her head or ears. But if you scratch her rumpus she'll stand there till she falls over or your arm falls off! Curious to know if other B's are like that or if she's a one of.

Sonny loves that same spot!! It's like a magic- the more you scratch- it looks like his eyes might roll back in his head & his hind leg lifts up & starts shaking! :p but the best part is the way his lip curls up on one side and he looks like Elvis! 😃

Bowpi has the exact same sweet spots!

One additional spot is her chest, right between her legs, but she has to get warm enough to uncurl from her usual donut shape and allow that part to be scratched.

If Malaika is lying down and you tickle her tum, she rolls partialy over or lifts her back leg to give better access 😃
She also loves you to scratch the back of her head, this makes her frown and her lips stretch into a realy long Crocodile grin. I will have to try and get a pic,lol
