She's a kissing, nosing, hugging lover and tail wagger for sure.

The ones I have here now are always wagging their tails when they are with us.

Deff. a tail wagger. Thats how I judge if its a good idea to introduce her to the dogs we pass while walking. Tail not wagging, keep on walking.

Yes, I also look at the face and tail of Dolly when passing by other people and dogs.

Yes. Sometimes. My husband complains that she doesn't wag her tail but she does for me. And when she meets her friendly possum on our 9:00 p.m. patrol her tail goes like crazy.

My Bella Mia is definetly a tail wagger, and sometimes repeated wags on the shins leaves a bruise, a much cherished bruised.

Not normally. I was quite surprised because all other dogs I've had have been big tail waggers. Maggie reserves tail wagging for hunting/tracking. I like this because it's an instant indicator she is on the scent.

Video link of Maggie trying to flush a rabbit she chased into a bush.

Gypsy has never been a tail wagger; though she is one of those "dare me" head swinger side lookers (almost horse like.. if you know what i mean..) in play and a smiler....

Maybe she is an internal wagger as she can have some pronounced body language when she is serious, alert, etc.. other than that she is my relaxed aloof girl.

However, Grader can lift off a helicopter with his tail, he is my 80lb wiggle monster.
