Default Weird habit?

I have recently noticed that I will rub Maggie or Gabby's ears when they lay with me. Not as "petting" but as a comfort thing - like my binky or something. LOL Does anyone else do this or have something similar you do with your pups? I have done it for a long time but never really had a second thought about it until I just caught myself mindlessly rubbing Maggie's ears between my fingers.

Binky...lol I do the same thing with Dixie when she is laying beside me...it's because her head is so soft and pleasing to feel.

Yup.

Bosley is always glued to my side... half the time I don't even have to look to see if he's there. He just always is. So in turn I am always stroking him and playing with his ears. It's just a habbit that developed without me paying attention lol

Hubby gets a little jealous...I'm not gonna lie lol
