Default Kicking back legs?

My new little boy Chi named Angus is doing something that looks very funny to me, while playing with my female Chi. During play, he turns his backside to her face and starts "pawing" at the carpet and kicking up his back legs. It looks like something a bull would do to a matador. (Does this make sense?) I've read it's a sign of aggression, but they are being very playful and he is naturally a very submissive dog. He has been neutered - my female has not been spayed yet.

It is natural, usually dogs will do that after they go to the bathroom. My pug does it and she is a girl. Ike does it just before he has to poop, instead of after.

Emmie does that when she plays and sometimes after she goes potty.

Hmmmm...I guess it's just a playful thing. I think it's funny!

I have never seen Lady do this but Prince does it frequently after "number 2". I read somewhere the pads on their feet are a primary way they leave their scent.

That is what my vet told me too. Jaxx does it after he goes poo almost every time. It reminds me of a cat with cat litter

My parent's Chi does that a lot when he gets excited or is playing. So far Bell only does it after she poops. I've never seen it happen as a sign of aggression.
