I love this. The reason he begins sniffing your legs and crotch area is because he’s checking your health. The dog was like oh why are you crying? Are you hurt? Let me check you. Sniff Sniff Sniff… and suddenly the dog was like you’re just being dramatic. Lol 😂😂😂 He’s trying to determine if you’re in physical pain He pokes you a little with his nose to see if you would like to wake up and give him some attention; he suspects that you are not really asleep. But then when you don’t get up, he decides to not bother you, and he lays down next to your feet- facing out, which is what dogs do, they watch the area near your feet- which you can’t see- and face away so that they can guard you. It’s instinctive in some breeds. He is watching over you. He is a good dog- I think he deserves a cookie. Rocky was concerned at the beginning but then realized he was being tricked so he retreated to the corner, basically ‘saying’ “I’m not having any of this” … LOL .. .Smart dog Dogs can feel human emotions, he could tell you weren’t upset, his consern was merely to why you were making that noies if you were fine. Then, he got ennoyed.
