After a long day, a good massage can really help you unwind and de-stress. This golden retriever can definitely attest to that!
In the video below, posted on March 4, 2017, a dog named Idgie Ruth sits on her owner’s bed with another family canine. She is about to get the face rub of a lifetime.
Her owner asks, “You yawning?” Then she places her hand’s on Idgie Ruth’s face and begins to massage her.
Suddenly, the golden retriever’s facial expression completely changes. As her face gets smushed around from the soothing face rub, she can’t contain her emotions.
Idgie Ruth’s mouth opens wide as she scrunches up her entire face. Although she is showing teeth in the video, her owner makes it clear that it is just her way of communicating how good the massage feels around her snout and eyes.
Her owner laughs and asks, “What is that face you’re making?!”
The face rub continues, and Idgie Ruth starts to lean toward her owner for more scratches and kneading around her cheeks. When a dog looks at you with a smiley face like hers, how can you ever say no?
“Is that the spot?” Idgie Ruth’s owner asks and smooths her hands over the dog’s head, letting the miraculous face rub come to an end.
