me either i don't know what that is!! too funny!! anyway i never knew there was a name for it but momma dog used to do that when we first got her until i knew the full extent of her temperament she would stay in the utility at night and when we weren't home and one day i noticed blood on the walls and was horrified checking everywhere to find where it was coming from!! it took me a few days to find it i hate to admit!! who ever knew??!! i do now and she doesn't stay in there any more. it has a habit of happening again. None of my others have had this and they wag just as much as she does. so it may be in the lines. i personally would like to dock the tails they are like lethal weapons to small children especially which i have 3 of and anything on coffee tables. who can have one of those and a mastiff?? but then you wouldn't get to see them wagging when you come home either!!

Two of my girls had tail issues. One was docked because she used to follow my then 2 year old around and one night while she was leaving his room, he shut his door and her tail was tipped. I ran her to the e-vet to try to get it to stop from bleeding ( I had been applying pressure bunt nada). Our Dining room looked like a masacre (sp).. My other girl Emma had really bad happy tail. It never got infected, but I tried everything to keep it cushioned. Nomatter what she always got the damn thing bleeding always before a show.
Anyway it ended the career of the brindle. Wich sucked.
