Question:

: When I feed my 1 and a half year old male, as I bring his food dish to him, he starts to raise the side of his lip in a real funny grin. I just started noticing this. It is real funny looking and doesn't seem to be a sign of aggresion. This is a dog I can walk up to and pull a raw bone out of his mouth and he won't care. Has anyone else seen a grin like this? He is dancing around as he is doing it and once the food plate goes down, its gone.

Hi Steve,

As long as this is not a curled lip with an aggressive stance you might as well just enjoy the show.

These guys can do some pretty wacky things, for me, this is one of the most appealing aspects of the breed.

Enjoy your terrier!
