Belly rubs are one of the purest forms of joy a dog can experience. It’s the equivalent to a back massage for people or a chin scratch for cats.

This little Cockapoo really loves receiving belly rubs and has found an incredibly polite way of asking for them. Starting by quietly sitting on a chair in her target’s peripheral vision, this pup knows just how to work the system. She slowly raises one paw, then the second and waves at the potential belly rub provider.

All the while, this Cockapoo is working the puppy eyes hard. Her mission was successful! The target engaged in belly scratching. When her target stops the belly scratching, though, this little dog is quick to turn on the charm once again. She has her priorities straight and is definitely not afraid of asking for her favorite thing, a wonderful belly rub, from anyone who is willing to share.
