What would you say if this is the way your dog greeted you?

This is how Misha greets me when I am not paying attention to her.  I’ll be sitting on the couch.  Misha will run in front of me, throw her head to the ground, and stick her butt in the air.  She looks back to make sure I see it.  If she is not pointing directly at me, she’ll scoot over so she is.

A couple of times, I’ve seen her give it to my empty seat.  She looks back in this position, then jumps up wondering where I am.

We call this “giving the butt”.  She’s been doing it since she was a puppy.  I’m not really sure what it means, but I’m pretty sure it’s disrespectful.  😉
