Whenever I clean Ninja's ears he has to smell the q-tip before and after.....
When I get home from work Ninja will only let me touch, kiss and pick him up if he's on my bed......he will otherwise keep running away from me.
that's all I can think of lol and it's all about Ninja go figure
LOL. This reminds me of Manolo - although I wouldn't say he 'hates' it but something crazy happens to him when he's wet too...he spazzes out and rolls around and slides frantically on the carpet in the bathroom to get dry but he seems to be happy when doing it. It's probably just a strange sensation for him. Bathing is not really a 'natural' thing for them so for some, I'm sure its just a weird sensation.
As far as the smelling - this is an instinctive thing that he's doing. I don't think it's weird and I don't think you should worry. He's probably just wanting to check things out
It's kind of cute actually.
And as far as his running away from you - he seems to be a playful little bugger and perhaps a little spoiled
Remember, we train the dogs not the other way around. If you want him to give you attention when not the bed then you should not reward him only when he's on it. Let him come to you...he'll get it eventually.
