Default Rolling in the grass

I just realized that Spirit, 8 months old now, has never rolled in the grass. My golden retriever always does.

Is this a breed characteristic or is Spirit unusual this way? I kinda like it ... he stays clean

I think you are just lucky Enjoy it. On a side note: I did notice through the years, that my female shepherd loves to do all the yucky stuff, and my male shepherds always stayed clean. LOL I always called Ginger my little piggy

I think it just depends on the dog. My Hector loves to roll when he's relaxed and happy.

Hi Jo!
Depends on the dog. My oldest girl rolls around, youngest girl doesn't...last male only did it on occasion.

(Can't wait to see the pics of the tree).

Gunner's a "rolling in the grass" fool. Does it every chance he gets.

Even when we're out on walks.

Yep, I've also made the connection to being relaxed and happy.

Need I say anything else?
That's a "happy face", if ever there was one.

Hondo rarely rolls. He will lay on his back with his legs in the air, but that's about it. My Golden, Doxie & Lacy all roll around in the grass/dirt/mud etc.

Gaia's not one for rolling in the grass but will never pass up a good roll in a mud puddle.

Gunner says "come on, try it, you'll love it".
