Obi the Dachshund makes an unusual face when his ear is scratched

By Lorrie Shaw

Most of us will agree, there is nothing quite like having someone scratch your back, or in the case of dogs — if they could talk, they'd likely say that it's the area around their ears that's most favorable!

Typically, when you rub or scratch a pet's ears, you'll see an expression that exudes absolute bliss — the eyes close, and a happy grimace appears on their face. So cute.

This dachshund is seen here enjoying a little cuddle time on its human's lap as well as a little ear scratch.

But, the expression on Obi's face is different one that you've seen before: the look of happiness and comfort is certainly there, but you'll notice something else that's quite unusual.
