Butt Attack!  
Lately, Daisy has been attacking Gambit with her bum. She'll start wiggling it back and forth and then charge at him and ram him in the face with her butt over and over. I'm trying to catch this on film, it is too weird and funny. She also likes to stand over him when he's lying down and squat on his head and rub her butt on his head. We say she is making him wear the "butt hat". I wonder, is this normal? Is there something up with her? She is fixed, so I don't think she's in heat, but she seems to enjoy butting (no pun intended) her brother in the face a lot, and is quite aggressive about it. Has anyone seen this before? She isn't biting her butt or rubbing it on the carpet or any other signs that she's irritated. And she only seems interested in attacking her brother with her butt, she doesn't treat other dogs like this. I can't figure it out. Any thoughts?

I have nothing useful to offer other than take video because it sounds funny/fun to watch! :)

P.S. She could just be playing... as long as she is not growling, or biting, etc.

I agree, I want to see video of this! The description alone is cracking me up!

On a more serious note, have you had her anal sacs checked? I know you said she isn't licking or dragging her butt, but maybe she gets the same effect from rubbing it on her brother's head? LOL, okay, it's just too funny...but yeah, our Muffuletta has to have her anals emptied every month or so. Apparently it's somewhat common in smaller breeds.

Her anal sacks are fine, as far as I know. Her checkup is next week, so I will mention it to the vet. Thanks for the head's up. I've been looking for other "butt" symptoms, but so far, she just likes making her brother wear the butt-hat. :)

Both of my doggies do this... but only to dogs they know *really* well. I've always thought it was just a play tactic :-) The butt-er seems to want a reaction, which s/he gets... and the butt-ee always jumps up and starts a game of chase and/or bitey face. Seems to work well all around for them!

Hoggy is the king of the "but move" as we call it. He even does the butt move on us!!
