That has to be so cute!! But really, why? Is he just itchy, or does he have pain? Remember when we were kids we were told itching is a low grade form of pain? This is probably similar. And, have you ever had a mosquito bite drive you nuts that when you made it bleed you finally had relief? Well, that might just be what your little buddy is doing under the cabinets – getting some pain relief. How does this work? He is stimulating the muscles and nerves on his back with the scratching. This stimulation gives immediate pain relief at the spinal cord level – no brain involvement needed. So, just like when you slam your thumb in the car door and you suck on it so it hurts less – immediate pain relief. Of course, all of this assumes the Beagle is free of fleas, and doesn’t have any other allergies going on.
